    Hello everyone,
    I have a WD mybook 2tb USB 3.0 that I use for backups. It behaves normally as long As I stay in OS X but as soon as I boot into windows 7 I get an error saying the drive has malfunctioned and wont show up in windows or OS X until I power cycle it and then it works normally in windows. I have both windows and OS X set to never put HDD to sleep. And I even changed the setting with the WD software. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Jeremy Blevins
