    External HD Error Mess: "drive or network connection ...unavailable


    Several external HD connected via USB 2.0/3.0. The message "The drive or network connection that the shortcut "...." drive (R) refers to is unavailable. Make sure that the disk is properly inserted or the network resource is available, and try again."

    The drive that shows the message is also absent from "This PC." If I restart it comes back. Then the same drive or another repeats the error.

    I continue to have issues. Have I not given proper information as to my question? I have another issue. No system restore available.
