Question about Fantom Titanium II (TFD500C16) 500 GB USB Hard Drive
The drive is working fine. I go to bed and the automatic backup from the C drive to this drive kicks off. I see in the morning that the backup has not finished, the drive has a solid red light and the computer is frozen. I turn off the USB drive and the computer unfreezes and all other work continues. running XP media edition on a Dell core 2 desktop, 2 GB memory, 250 GB C drive, all USB ports are version 2. Power settings are to not turn off hard drives ever, do not let windows turn off USB to save power. I don't have a clue. The C and USB drive are running NTFS and scandisk shows no errors. Diskmaster shows little or no fragmentation.
Sounds like the enclosure is failing, the drive has bad sector/blocks or there may have been a breif dip in power which has effected the opration, locking up the drive and the computer while it was attached. Hope this helps.
