    There are many instances of this, but why?

    Hi,

    Could it be the volume was marked "dirty" not too long ago ?
    Athough it's "Clean" now, I'd still run chkdsk /r from an elevated command prompt on that volume.

    If your drive disconnects and reconnects, and Autoplay is set to view the drive in file explorer, file explorer will open showing the drive's contents. (Note my comment on Autoplay some time back).

    And if the drive is constantly disconnecting/reconnecting, Explorer will continue to open every time the drive reconnects.

    Hi,

    And if the drive is constantly disconnecting/reconnecting, Explorer will continue to open every time the drive reconnects.
    Which will lead to corrupted files eventually. Hence the EV ID regarding Ntfs health.

    But this only occurs near or at ESENT

    Those are informational messages. We all have these on our systems.It's not ESENT causing the problem it's just logging.

    Take a very practical approach. If you have a different drive/cable etc try those in the same USB connector. See if you can wobble them and find they disconnect. Is it the socket on your PC, the drive, the cable... swap them around until you can perhaps identify which it is- if any. Check it's not a simple hardware problem by logical elimination.

    Well, it's probably not ESENT. There were a number of ESENT entries in the Event Log but no corresponding opening of the drive. So it could be a cable or connector. But the USB drive does not move at all so the cable and connection are physically stable.
