I just bought a 2TB My Passport Ultra drive. I partitioned it into two, one standard Mac partition, and one NTFS partition. I performed a clone on the Mac partition with no problem. But now when I try to backup to my NTFS partition on Windows I keep getting errors from multiple programs. I first tried ShadowProtect and got a read error. Then Acronis True Image and I got another read error on hard disk 1 (which is the Passport drive).
In between these two attempts I ran the Complete Test Drive in the WD Drive Utilities, and it passed. So I’m not sure what’s wrong here. I am not inclined to think it is something unique to a program since the problem consistently was reported across two programs. But WD Drive Utilities says there are no problems. Any ideas?
