NTFS HDD gets unmountetd - piraten_fisch - 14th Mar, 2013 09:55 PM


I have a USB HDD on my pi.
it ist formatted with NTFS GPT, i mounted it according to this manual:

it worked nicely for some time, even survived a reboot.
Bur now it unmounts from time to time givin me the message: Device unmounted unsafely. Then i can plug it out and in again and it will work for a few minutes.

what could be the reason for that?

is it self powered or connected over powered USB hub ?

it's a sharkoon 5-bay raid box, so yes it is self powered

I too have a self powered NTFS USB drive (connected directly to the pi but previously via a powered hub) and get this same problem.

The real problem with this is that although the drive will reconnect, the mouse and keyboard won't work until a reboot of the pi.

ANy help would be greatly appreciated! ;-)
