I have a WD My Book 2 TB external Hard Drive. Lately when I restart my computer with it plugged in it will either not be recognized or it will show up but I can not access anything on it. On the occasions that it is recognized I open it up and it was that it is entirely empty.
The only way I can make sure it works is by having it unplugged when I start up my computer and plug it in when it is up and running.
Things I have tried:
- scanning for viruses
- reinstalling the driver.
If anyone out there can help me with this, or explain what is going on I would be very thankful. I am not the best with computers so please have patience with me.
