I have a 4TB version which had problems of suddenly disconnecting by itself. I had noticed that via the HD Sentinel program, that the drive has a 24.000 plus Start Stop which is way too high compared to another WD External I bought at the same time which has only 190 StartStops.
How do I safely Format this drive and Keep the Wireless Capabilities? Is it just like a simple HDD format from windows?
Is it better formatted as NTFS or ExFAT? I plan to use this more as a streaming storage for my Android phones.
