Unable to backup to easystore

My backup plan fails as being unable to locate target. I can locate Easystore as an external drive manually and I can open it and see all that I’ve backed up previously. In reading through the comments dating back years, I’m wondering why there are no updates to resolve this issue? I am not able to spend forever at my computer because I have a work life outside of my computer. Did I miss something in the many discussions? I didn’t drop my drive. It hasn’t been unplugged. Should I move along and seek other product recommendations?. Please advise if able.
