I recently bought a new machine - Dell with Win 10 Pro.
In the old machine, all data was stored on 4 external USB drives, which I will name here as N:, P:, T:, and U:.
P was (and still is) a backup to N: and U is a backup to T.
The s/w is GFI BackUp Freeware.
I configured Windows to “Never” put computer to sleep.
The P, T, and U drives are always visible. The N drive periodically disconnects/goes to sleep/whatever .
When I do not see it in the Explorer, I pull the power plug out (it’s an older 2T model) and then plug it back in.
It’s a minor, but still, irritation.
Any suggestion how to fix the problem is appreciated.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
One (out of 4) external drives stubbornly goes to sleep
