Posting rules: It shouldn't need saying, but... play nice. Please keep your discussions civil. You can disagree, just don't be disagreeable. And, of course, all of the usual stuff like no spamming. Tex adds: I'll be rigorously enforcing this as we go along. We're probably going to be a small community in a little lifeboat, so we can't have members at each others' throats. This is for the sake of the project as a whole. So when you post, pretend you're speaking in person with your very wealthy auntie who has always treated you wonderfully and currently lists you prominently in her will. I won't be tossing anyone out of the forums because we are all in this together (except spammers: immediate membership cancelation), but I'll delete suspect posts right away.

Hope it helps.

By the way, where is the place to post the observations about beat testing ?

Hello Francois,

Hello Francois,


I have a 4GB USB3 external drive  (HGST) which is connected by a 3mtr cable and sometimes 'disappears' or fails to re-connect after hibernation.


It also goes into a sleep mode from time to time.


Working with a shorter USB3 cable seems to work more reliably for reconnections. Waking frmo sleep mode takes longer than I would expect but does come back to life.


If the drive is asleep I have to click on "Computer" and open up the required folders that way to drill down to the drive I want (It is the same for card readers and the inbuilt SD card reader. However they do all work once that is done.


Your posted screen sample file seems to be just an Icon. There is no way to embed an image in the forum but you can save it to a cloud storage service and provide a link to it from there. As far as I could tell there was nothing on my system that would see the icon as a link. I may have missed something.











Hi Grant, I checked again and it is defintely the case. The USB cbale si short (30cm) and the dricve G :/ sceond particion on my windows PC  is mot visinle.

Do you have a site I can upload bitmaps ? I do not have cloud access (yet) .

Best regards.... Francois
