Problems with Secondary drive

Hello Everyone,

I am having problems with my secondary drive, I am getting a pop up bubble that says "Delayed Write Failed" or the files and folders will close for no apparent reason and then I get the error message " windows explorer needs to close" followed by the option of sending an error report. Anyone know what could be causing this problem?

Tried error checking the drive? Sounds like it could be bad/going bad.

You may end up needing to try a HDD diagnostic, which can be downloaded from most HDD manufacturers websites. They will confirm if the drive is running good or bad.
