Drive Failure


I noticed earlier when viewing the notifications there was one saying “Drive Failure” with a red ! as the symbol. Does this mean my drive is defective/need replacing or repairing or can this just happen sometimes as a one off?
I have had the drive for about 1 year 6 months, but I assumed it would last longer than this?
I did restart the device once I saw this message and haven’t had any issues since but im worried now it could fail again and loose data?


Hi KrazyBrute,

You can try running the System Diagnostics in order to test the device via FULL TEST. You can refer the support knowledge base article’s link given below.
