Bitlocked external HDD re-locks itself
I have a 2tb external Hitchi drive that is bitlocked. The drive will randomly re-lock itself and i cannot figure out why. I thought it may be a problem with the drive going into sleep mode so i got software that would prevent sleep mode but the drive still re-locks itself. The drive seems to most frequently re-lock and ask me for the password again after about 12hrs, but it has re-locked just seconds after unlocking it before. I have checked the drive with HDDScan and all the smart values look fine except for the CRC count because the drive has locked on me while transferring files, so i would obviously get a CRC error; the count is 4.
Does anyone know anything about this? How can i stop this drive from locking on me?
Any info would be great! Thanks!
