External USB Drive keeps disconnecting periodically RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    We have an external 2TB Seagate drive connected directly to a VM (Windows10) running on Hyper V. THe Disk is listed as OFFLINE in the host and the VM detects the drive fine. In the event viewer I can see a bad block error on DR1. These are the only errors relating to disk. I know seagate drives have loads of issues however in a VM where do I start looking. I want to run a chkdsk after backing up the drive contents. Any other ideas to look for? Could be the physical drive is failing.
