I used to have 256gb 'boot' ssd + 2x3TB HDD Windows Storage spaces in parity mode.
I deleted a Windows storage spaces virtual volume (was set to parity), took out one of the drives and partitioned the remaining drive with a simple ntfs volume.
Now the drive keeps getting offline and the only way to reconnect is to use the command line diskpart tool or reboot.
I suspect this is something to with the HDD still having the same ID as the old Windows Storage spaces had or something similar to that or a sign of an actual hardware issues (faulty hdd, faluty cable).
How do I properly reset the HDD, do you also think that this may signal some sort of hardware issue with the drive as well.
SMART seems to be ok, even when drive is offline.
