    Hard Drive disappears while defragmenting....

    I am talking about my 3400 rig. Im using 2 36gb raptors in raid 0 and also 1 160 gb IDE Maxtor. I was defragmenting the 160gb and when it was almost complete it went back to 0% complete and sat there. Using Executive Softwares's Diskeeper v8.0. I had the 160 partitioned into 2 drives. Now, neither one can be found. My bios does recognize that the 160 is there but when windows boots it is not found. I moved all my important files onto this drive because I figured it would be more stable than the Raid setup. I have to recover this hard drive. Anybody know whats going on?

    Well.. I removed the hard drive and stuck it in my 3200 rig and it shows up just fine. Im totally relieved that the data is still there but why would this happen?
