losing connection to network device
Posted on 2011-10-26
I have a usb external drive attached to a computer on the network. I'm trying to restore a backup currently on the external usb drive to a NAS. The NAS is visible on the network, shows an ip address & name on the server, but during the copy process I lose connection with the NAS.
The NAS (or subdirectories of it) are then invisible in Windows Explorer. Or I get a message that I don't have rights to the NAS.
If I close everything down and open it back up I can see my dives & directories. But when the copy process starts again, it may run for a few minutes, but eventually loses connection again.
With 2TB to restore, this may take 6 years :-(
