Hello, I hope it's my HDD just going bad... But that honestly doesn't make too much sense right now.

So I think two days ago is when I first noticed issues start.. the issue was a program I use for 3d printing just stopped working kept popping up with an error.. I uninstalled and reinstalled and everything was fine.. mind you the file were in the HDD the whole time.. this is what I think will help you the most.. I went to play EFT and at the launcher it wanted me to install it again.. I clicked on the select path option tho and found it on the "D" HDD and then it checked it and worked fine.. Everytime I'd load into raid tho I would get massive lag spikes for about 30 seconds tho and I have never had that issue.. I've also noticed my internet settings have been being reset like logins and such and I am not clearing anything... I hope it's a faulty HDD or an easy fix but I have never experienced this before...

Thanks

In the case of file loss, defraging is one option but if something major like game files are being lost chances are it's the HDD failing.

So this is A: just D drive and or B: C drive

If A, you could test with some sort of disk drive checker.

If B, you could have some sort of weird malware, or the main drive (C) is actually failing. Only saying this because you are losing data (settings, logins, etc) that is based off of the C drive. Not *everything* game related (such as paths) are always stored on the installation drive. Also check the windows install, sfc /scannow etc


PM me if you need more help, this is very broad.

Seeeeee that's what I was thinking also with the logins and such... I did switch my game to a different HDD and I am having zero issues now though also no issues so far with passwords so it's really confusing...

Definitely agree with failing hard drive I would just replace not a very expensive fix.
