The external drive is a WD My Book USB harddrive - extra compatable with the WD Live! It powers down after the WD Live turns off, and powers up on it’s own when the WD Live is turned on via the remote.
However, it corrupted the entire drive last night! Everything, gone. I’ve had to reformat the drive anew, and (thankfully) use a backup to move files in batches back to the drive. I don’t recall exactly how the drive was setup for entertainment, but it’s going to a take hours.
This hasn’t happened to me before with other computers, why did it happen now?
I ran a diagnosic tool on the recently reformatted drive - no issues. I use Mac OS X and it’s never been an issue with the drive setup before.
Anyone else had their WD Live erase your hard drive?
