It's hard to explain but my game (fallout 4) will slowly crash (at first i seem to lose audio files because many sounds start to disappear and then the game freezes and tells me steam crashed as well) and when I try to check my D: drive it's as if it does not exist or the computer can't detect it (steam is in D: drive).

I don't know how to formulate it any better really, I'm sorry if it is vague, I am not extremely computer savvy. Any and all help you can provide will be appreciated

 

thank you

Is your D drive a partition of your drive?

 

In other words, is your hard drive separated into two, with C drive and D drive, but they are both on the same hard drive?

No it's not a partition they are separate drives

No I have not done that, however this only happens when I play fallout 4...if the drive was bad wouldn't it happen for other reasons than just playing my game?

Try this and see what happens to see if like magic the hdd disconnects, free version only lets you do 15 min runs, do it a feu times as needed.

I ran the test, and there are no errors except for the optical disk drive E: (because i had no CD to put in it)

I'm not a games person, but wonder if this describes your issue

thanks but although it is similar this is not the problem i am facing, my computer acts as though the D: drive just disconnects while im playing. So i cant access game files and it crashes, then steam crashes and then i cant access any information on my D; drive at all until i reboot.
