Hi Newby here.
I have a media pc on my home system network. I also have a main pc and a laptop.
I upgraded with the above drive on both desktops, the one on the mediapc is ok for a while. then it becomes unavailable.
I check on Device manager and it is not there suggesting it is the drive.
If I power down and then back on it is there again and works for a while.
I am trying to get all the data off it ASAP but each time it drops off on me.
Can anyone tell me is this a common fault?
I am trying to use the WD diagnostics and have just read about the problem of the drives not being visible unless I run the prog as administrator.
