Paging Error on Drive, how do I confirm the correct drive?

Getting "An error was detected on device \Device\Harddisk3\DR32 during a paging operation." error. When I try to locate the referenced drive using WinObj only Harddisk0, Harddisk1 and Harddisk2 are referenced, nothing on Harddisk3. It's possible this was a removable disk that is no longer active, how can I verify this is the case?

Is this a one time error? Or does it reoccur? How many drives do you have in system? It could be that paging counts drives from 1 and the WinObj from 0.

disconnect each one in sequence and reboot - you'll find out soon which one it is

Normally, you would run DISKMGMT.MSC and the disks will be listed so you can identify the physical disk.  If; however, that disk is no longer present, enter this in an administrative CMD window:
set DEVMGR_SHOW_NONPRESENT_DEVICES=1
devmgmt.msc
You still need to click View -> Show hidden devices; but, the resultant device manager will list everything Windows has ever detected rather than what is there now.

Its likely a problem with your paging file.  Set your pagefile to 0, reboot, delete the pagefile.sys, run CHKDSK on the C: drive then set your system back to manage its pagefile on the C: drive.
