My new 1TB Mybook Live seems to have a problem remounting after sleep mode in Windows 7 64. Especially if the drive is in sleep mode when I start my PC. I was expecting that it would wake as soon as a mount request was received. I haven’t had it long so there may be more going on than meets the eye, but it’s odd.
If I remount the drive manally it is fine, but that’s not much of a solution - I want the drive to wake if applications access the data.
I have disabled sleep mode on the MyBook, and will see how this goes - will this dramatically shorten the life of the drive ?
Also, odd thing, the time service thinks it’s 7pm when actually it is 11am. I’ve had to disable the time service as well.
