I use a laptop and want to install MyPassport Utra on a usb drive on my ASUS router and use a backup software other than WD’s. I’m having trouble making that work. In the meantime, I connected My Passport directly to my laptop and backed up. Since I don’t want to have the My Passport dangling from my laptop all the time, I safely remove the drive after a manual backup. Then I get a DPC Watchdog violaton and my laptop freezes. Sometimes, it’s immediate, sometimes it’s a few days before I get the DPC violation.
laptop: Dell Inspiron 5547, running windows 8.1, updates are current
Any help would be apprciated. Thanks
