I am using a spare laptop hard drive encased in a IT-CEO case and connected to my Win 8.1 laptop and it is used for backup purposes. The problem is that it keeps disconnecting and re connecting at times. Any ideas, please

Try it in a different usb port or use a powered hub.

FruitBat Yes thanks. You are probably right, it's only powered by a second usb cable. Never thought of that. Yes have tried different usb ports. Sorry for late response. Anniesboy
