I try to keep my data files on an external hard disk drive. I use an ancient LeCie drive. I say ancient because it is eight years old and this is the first problem I’ve had with it. I’m not even sure the problem is with it because Windows 10 did not know it was there until I rebooted my system.
I can’t be unhappy the drive has outlasted two computers. It was one of the first tetra byte drives available. I think you can figure my next external drives will be a LeCie.
