External HD detached though it still shows on my computer

  1. Hoping someone can help me with this......

    Sometimes when I detach my ext HD using windows 'safely remove hardware' , the device still shows as being connected under 'my computer'. Even with the external HD detached, I can still view the contents of the drive but nothing more. When I re-attach the drive, the computer freezes.

    I use CCleaner on a daily basis however I dont think that will resolve the issue.

    It's obviously a caching issue

    Which CCleaner usually rectifies

    You could try Memtest too
