I have Windows 7 and the My Book World Edition 6tb drive with a fixed IP address. I mapped the drive in Windows 7. When I copy large amounts of data the drive stops responding. I have the latest firmware and I turned off powermanagement on the PC and on the MY Book World edition. What is causing this? I can load my WD Shared Space with no problem. Is this drive overheating? I am trying to fill this drive with 4TB of data. The first time it copied for 9 hours and then lost connectivity. Everytime after that it only copied for 15-20 minutes and then loses connectivity. The only way to restore connectivity is to unplug the drive and then plug it in again.
When the drive loses connectivity if I used WD Link then it does not show up in the list.
