USB Drive not being recognized on T710 Server

Last Modified: 2016-06-26
I have a T710 that we are running daily backups on. The external USB drive is a 2 TB Western Digital My Passport.
When the USB drive is not recognized a reboot is required, after the reboot it will show up but then once the next hard drive is put in it will not see it.
I have tried different drives, different times of the day to run it, and formatting the drives
BA is up to the latest version
this is Server 2012r2 - has anyone encountered this before?
