On Feb. 28 I discovered that the 2nd disk drive in my old Dell 530 machine no longer appeared under "My Computer". I rebooted and it still wasn't there. My conclusion was that it had died (it was only about 2 years old). Since then I have spent quite a few hours trying to restore the lost files from backups. I have almost completed that task. This morning, to my surprise, I find that drive is up and running again. Has anyone ever heard of that happening? Is there any possible explanation other than a hardware failure? Needless to say, I will make sure I have copied all of the files while I have this window of opportunity!
