I'm running Windows 7 and I have a 1TB Western Digital MyBook drive attached via eSATA. Whenever I connect via remote desktop, the drive seems to disappear. If I login to the system locally and reboot the drive, it shows back up again.
The MyBook drive in question is on a desktop computer. I'm connecting to the desktop from my laptop via remote desktop. So the drive on the remote system (desktop) is the one that is disappearing. Even after closing the remote desktop session and logging directly into the desktop, the drive is not there until I reboot the drive.
Any ideas on what is going on or how I can fix it?
Some additional information. If I have an explorer window with the drive open, the problem does not occur.
