    Your problem is if as stated above.....you have two master boot records connected up together confusing the computer....causing the switch.
    Solution......Disconnect "D" Drive.

    Well, that might resolve the issue, but it certainly would eliminate any backup capability in the computer.

    It finally occurred to me the screen shot you posted showed the "Turn off hard disk after" setting was "Never". I set the setting to "Never" on my PC.

    The computer was in use last night for about three hours, and again this morning for over two hours so far. The problem has not recurred. I don't understand why the fix worked, but apparently it has. I am most grateful for your help.

    Thank you very much!

    Simple reason, every time it's accessed (or any other disk because that setting works on all or none), it wakes up and triggers new storage found notification displaying it's contents.
