It was mentioned in the resolution of this issue that the cause was the Pervasive Sql driver was causing the issue. I have a similar issue with one of my servers and would like to know how to investigate the above possibility as i have exhausted all other avenues.

    Hi guys

    I have finally resolved the issue and it was indeed the pervasive Sql causing the problem. I took the lead from one of the posts and then proceeded to download the latest service pack for the pervaisive which is SP3. I installed this rebooted the server and VOILA it worked problem sorted.

    This problem only seems to manifest itself in Ver 10 of pervasive. I hope this information helps others out there that are experiencing this issue.

    Here is a KB that explains the issue:

    The description from the KB article:
    The reported problem is that external PNP (Plug-and-Play) devices formatted with NTFS that are installed after XIO is started (ex. Removable USB hard disk device) are not mounted correctly. Devices installed before XIO is started during boot-time will be mounted along with other non-removable disks.  

    As stated, this is resolved in SP3.  This also only affects 32 bit servers.  It does not affect 64 bit servers.
