Drive being used with Intel optane keeps disappearing.

I have an E: drive associated with my Intel Optane and it will randomly disappear. On reboot, it comes right back.

 

When I look in the System event logs, I see an error associated with that states "Disk 2 has been surprise removed.".

 

This started happening after I got the Optane card working with the drive.

 

Any idea what could be causing this?

It has not happened since the last time. Should I go ahead and post the logs or wait until it happens again?

 

Also would it be better to do the logs when the problem is occurring? For example, when the E: drive is missing?

Attached is the disk management image.

 

Is there a way to privately send the ssu log?

As I said in a previous post, it has not happened in a week or so. Can we leave this ticket open for a week or so in the event it happens again.

 

When it does happen, what do you want me to upload

It just happened again. Suddenly E: drive is missing and when I check event viewer it states:

 

"Disk 2 has been surprise removed."

 

On reboot it comes back.

 

Below are images of the Optane utilize before and after reboot.

 

Before reboot and when E: drive is missing:

 

optane-tool.jpg

 

After reboot:

 

after-reboot.jpg

 

Can you please send me an email so I can send before and after SSU logs privately?

 

Also If I do an RMA on the drive, how do I disable Optane on it while I swap it out ? Just go into the utilize and click the Disable button?

 

Thank you
