|This is a bit embarassing. Since some time now, the disk hasn't disconnected itself in the same conditions (when T100 is left inactive for some time). So I'm unsure if the problem is still alive or not.|
The only thing I'm sure : similar issues (disconnecting usb devices) have been reported and users facing the issue seem to incriminate Windows 8/8.1.
I cannot assign a "Best answer" yet. The suggestion of Fingers (#2) is a good idea, when and if the disk disconnects itself again in the same circumstances.
However yesterday it kept disconnecting for no apparent reason, in completely new different manner : continuously at short intervals of a few minutes , maybe maximum 10 times,
Removing the usb3.cable and reconnecting it, resulted each time in reconnecting the disk with success. Every file was accessed without problem.
While during that same short period of tme 15-20 minutes, the keyboard input was deadslow !
After that period , no problem any more.Even after leaving the AsusT00 untouched for the whole evening the disk remained connected, exactly as the days before, and as opposed to the topic start question .
At this moment, while typing now everything seems again to work norrmally.
I can't figure out what is going on.
I'm suspicious about the hardware of this AsusT100 , but what ?
