I recently purchased the drive above and have had no issues with it whatsoever apart from the fact that everytime I plug it in my computer pops up a dialogue box asking if I want to scan and repair the files or continue without scanning. I always select continue without scanning and everything functions normally but what is causing this and how can I stop it? Many thanks.
That message usually appears when you disconnect the Passport USB cable without safely ejecting it first. Check the following link for more information.
