I currently have a G Technology Drive, (not SSD), it falls asleep so quickly and takes quite a bit of time to "wake back up". It's really annoying. Has anyone experienced that with this drive? Thanks very much!

I've had one for a year with no problems so no suggestions. I do keep the computer area cool though.

What is involved in reformatting for windows?

What is involved in reformatting for windows?
Asked by: jeanne
Windows Formatting Instructions (7 and above) once BlackBox Plus is connected: 1. Right-click My Computer and click Manage. 2. In the Computer Management window, under Storage, click Disk Management. 3. In Disk Management, right click the Unallocated partition near the bottom of the window that corresponds to the capacity of BlackBox Plus (often Disk 1). Click "New Simple Volume" and the Write Signature Wizard pops up. 4. Use the wizard to write a signature to the new drive. If you want only one partition we suggest using a primary partition and selecting the maximum size. In most cases you’ll want to use NTFS volumes, this is the default for Windows 7. Ensure "Perform a Quick Format" is checked. Choose exFAT if you want to use the drives with older versions of Windows or if you want to use the drive with Windows and Mac OS. 5. Formatting will take a few minutes after which your drive will be ready to use. •Note - Formatting for Windows 8 and above is the same once you are in Disk Management.
