I installed a brand new 2 TB external drive to use as a dedicated Time Machine folders backup drive on my MAC and it worked for one day and loaded 450 gig of folders and files via Time Machine and then when I rebooted my system next day it had disappeared. I tried switching on and off, changing the USB lead, a different USB port, plugging the drive into another MAC sytem but it has completely disappeared. I cant even see it in Disk Utilities. I dont mnd re-formatting it and losing the data as its only backed up my system files once so far.
Any ideas anyone ? before I frustratingly send it back under warranty
