    External HDD 3.5 WD RED NAS Enclosure Keeps Ejecting


    I have a Sabrent 3.5 external enclosure. It keeps ejecting itself from one of my Windows 10 computers running build 20H2 19041.804. The 3.5 HDD is a WD Red NAS HDD 4TB. The ejecting of the drive happens frequently. I use this drive to continually read/write data for various server related jobs. When I plug it into another computer it works fine. I swapped out the enclosure and the problem occurs again on the same problematic computer. There are 4 USB 3.0 ports on the machine and I've tried all of them with the same results. I have 2 USB ports being used by two other NAS's and they work fine. So the problem seems to be specifically related to the drive in this specific computer. The computer just stopped liking it one day and it's been plugged in for a couple years without a problem.

    1. I've tried chkdsk and it is getting stuck at about 80% on the problematic machine yet it completes just fine on other machines.
    2. HD Tune Pro shows that the interface CRC Error count is current 200, worst 195, threshold 0, data 435 and status attention. This makes me think the HDD is starting to show signs of failure if I am interpreting the numbers correctly.
    3. HD Tune Pro finds no errors in its deep scan error scan.
    4. WD Dashboard fails on the problematic computer because it keeps ejecting but passes on other machines.

    So the pattern I am seeing is that the HDD fails and ejects constantly on the one machine I need it on but when I test it on other machines it passes except for the CRC error count with HD Tune Pro which stays consistent across the board because it is the S.M.A.R.T. data. Could anyone provide some advice on what my next steps should be other than backing up my data?

    Thanks!

    :)

    Western Digital Launches 2.5-inch WD Red Hard Drives for NAS

    I guess this is how it looks today:

    Consumer:

    WD Se WD4000F9YZ (5 years)
