This mainly started after upgrading to Windows 10, but not until about a month after upgrading, so I really don’t think the OS upgrade had anything to do with it.
My Book works fine for several hours, sometimes all day. But when I leave the computer for several hours and come back to it, the computer recognizes My Book as a hard drive, but it can not open any of the folders. I have to unplug the hard drive from the USB port, and then I restart the computer (don’t know if that’s necessary or not, but I do it), then plug the hard drive back in & it will work fine for the next few hours.
I have had this hard drive about 2 years, and I never had to do this before. Just started a couple of weeks ago. I looked at the power management plan, and it is not set to turn off any external devices at all. So that’s not the problem.
Anyone else experienced this?
