I have an Iomega Prestige USB 3.0 2tb external drive that does not reconnect after sleep and/or hibernate. It will remain connected until sleep/hibernate. I use the included "Quick Protect" This is a recent issue ~2 mos., I just now decided to tackle it.
I have updated all software, drivers and firmware as indicated in other sites, and keep everything up to date. Iomega does not have good support, so nothing from them.
To reconnect, I have to either power cycle it or disconnect/reconnect the USB cable. I have also tested using USB 2.0 - seems to be the same. Once recognized, everything work fine until the next sleep cycle.
Sometimes the drive is accessible via Win Explorer, yet Quick Protect says it failed to copy because cannot connect to the drive.
I have been browsing forums for several days now and cannot hit anything that helps. Thoughts on what else to look into?

Thank you.
