I have a new surface pro, running latest version of windows. My new MyPassport is connected directly via usb to it (or sometimes via usb hubs, powered and non powered). Even when the surface pro is asleep, the MyPassport stays awake, constantly spinning.
Is this the fault of the MyPassport? Windows 10? I am worried that the drive will fail due to the constant spinning/heat.
I dont think I installed any kind of driver/software for it … I just plugged, formatted, and started using it.
