My 8TB drive won't stay connected on USB3, but will on USB2
I have two 8TB WD Easystore drives. Both behave the same way. Connected to USB3, both are recognized and work, until there is no activity. Both go to sleep and disconnect. I get “drive disconnected” error on my Mac. I tried connecting them through a USB2 hub and they stay connected. I tried connecting one to the USB3 port on my ASUS wireless router. I set it up as TimeMachine storage. All was well, until the activity stopped. Then I got a “device not connected” error when TimeMachine tried to run again. Any help is appreciated.
Is this a good question?
