nvme drive disappears after about an hour of uptime
About a month ago I installed an intel 660p 2280 2tb nvme drive using the adapter available on the pine64 store. It has worked great and I even moved my home directory to it. Two days ago the drive disappeared which caused manjaro to kick me to a login screen which would not allow me to login. Rebooting put me into a command prompt saying home folder wasn't available. I thought it might be the ribbon cable so I re-seated it and rebooted, and the drive was back. But an hour later it disappeared again. This cycle repeated many more times, with me thinking the ribbon cable and connectors were the problem, and constantly re-seating the cable. I have a second nvme adapter, so I swapped it, and I get the same behavior. I also happened to have received another 660p for another project, so I swapped it in, to confirm that the issue was not with the drive, and yes, the drive is fine because the same behavior occurs with the new drive.

The nvme drive ran fine for about a month, but now I can't go beyond about an hour without it disappearing from the system. Perhaps the issue may be related to heat, since if I immediately reboot after the drive disappears, no drive but if I wait a while, the drive appears normally.

Any help or insights are greatly appreciated. Thanks.
