I'm having a replacement drive sent to me as Win 8.1 had some wierd issues accessing the first copy:
Sometimes I could get into the drive but most time I couldn't.
When I could get into the drive, after copying several files back or forth, the drive would freeze
and I wouldn't be able to get back into it for awhile; nor see the drive listed in explorer or Disk Management
The drive comes formatted for exFAT
I'm wondering if I might avoid the above issue (if the problem just wasn't simpley a bad drive)
by formatting the new replacement as NTFS before even attempting to use it?
