I have errors periodically appearing in System log that read like this:
"An error was detected on device \Device\Harddisk2\DR82 during a paging operation." (the numbers after DR change each time)
I also get random pop-ups saying that "the device in drive G: needs to be formatted".
The problem is, there is no harddisk2 or drive G:. Disk Management only shows disk 0 (containing C: and E:) and disk 1 (containing F:) and also a cd-rom D:

How can I find out which device tries to pose as disk 2? Any logs or queries to do so?

Hardware is HP ProLiant ML350 G6 running Windows Server 2008 R2.
