I use a 2TB WD My Passport connected to my Win10 desktop for storing my Plex media. As of a couple months ago, perhaps after a Win10 update, the drive is very slow to respond if it hasn't been accessed in a while. In Windows this presents as double clicking a folder and having to wait 5-7 seconds before its contents are displayed, and in Plex it presents as having to wait 5-7 seconds for a video to load. I figured the drive was going to sleep or something but I confirmed my power settings are correct, that the drive is set to 'better performance' in the Policies tab, and that 'allow the computer to turn off this device to save power' was turned off, so none of that has helped. I then found this and thought for sure this would fix it but it either didn't do anything or only helped a little bit: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/us...sappears-or-file-transfers-stop-unexpectedly/ Today I said screw it and replaced the drive and it's still happening, so at this point it has to be a Windows 10 issue? Anyone have any ideas?
