Information P:\ refers to a location that is unavailable


Active Member
Hi Guys.
I keep getting this error popping up
"P:\ refers to a location that is unavailable. It could be on a hard drive on this computer, or on a network. Check to make sure that the disk is properly inserted, or that you are connected to the Internet or your network, and then try again. If it still cannot be located, the information might have been moved to a different location"
The PV is only a couple of weeks old

Any way, I have now lost a completely another external drive which was completely fine
Please help, how do I get that back

Any ideas?

A manual disconnect and remapping of that drive / external might resolve this for you. Do you need assistance completing that?
