Passport crashing

I have a WD Passport WD3200MER 00 which has worked fine for years without any problems. It even took the upgrade from Windows XP via 8.1 to 10 in it’s stride without complaining! However, a recent update of Outlook 2016 (Version 1611 Build 7571.2109) is causing the device to crash when trying to sync Outlook items. All other functionality and syncing of “my files”, drag and drop to Explorer etc. is fine…it’s just the sync with Outlook 2016 which causes the crash. Has anybody else come across this issue or indeed, managed to find a solution?


Does it happens only with this drive?

Yes…only this drive.
