    As the title says my 3TB USB HDD doesn't work after MePo went to sleep and stayed this way for a while.
    It's connected to a USB 2.0 port and has only one partition. It is recognized and files play fine after a restart, but when i send the PC to sleep for a while (doesn't happen when the time is to short), the disk is still there and i can click on files to start them, but they don't start. When i try to open a mkv with VLC play i get an error: bad file description.
    Another, even stranger, error is that the disks only partition isn't recognized anymore and when i open disk management it shows the disk, but three partitions.?!
    I know this is no problem of MePo but i couldn't find anything on the web which helped me and i hoped someone had this problem before and fixed it.
