I am working on a machine where the user adjusted the policies of an external Seagate hard drive from the default (Quick removal) to the "Better Performance" with "Write caching on the device" enabled.
I believe this is causing the constant "Delayed Write Failed" errors i see in a balloon window from the task bar anytime a file is written to that drive.
If I try to change the setting (Disk Management, right clicked the drive, Properties, Policies Tab), back to the default setting of Quick Removal OR disable the write caching - I get an error - "Windows could not change the write-caching setting for the device. your device might not support this feature or changing the setting" and am unable to fix.
I have ran a full diagnostic on the drive and it passed.
