I have an issue with the USB 3.0 connectors on my Intel NUC.
They will all of a sudden stop working, often only for a few second and reload the (thumb)drive attached to them. This is very annoying for video and music playback.
I cant figure out if its a hardware or a software issue.
I would appreciate some advice.
We need more information. Please download and run the Intel System Support Utility for Windows. Select all data categories and then have it generate a report. Next, have the tool Save the report to a text file (don't try to use the Submit capability; it doesn't work). Finally, using the Drag and drop here or browse files to attach dialog below the edit box for the body of your response post, upload and attach this file to the response post.
I reviewed the SSU report, but I am not seeing any glaring wrongs. There are quite a few notifications of system restarts without proper shutdown beforehand.
Do you keep these two USB-based HDDs online all the time? A lot of sustained drive activity across USB could result in what might appear to be USB hangs. Also, remember that USB 3.0 clocks its data at 2.4GHz and poor quality USB cables could result in this disaffecting 2.4Ghz Wireless and Bluetooth operation (I am not saying you have poor quality USB cables, just providing words to the wise).
There are notifications of file corruption on the drive appearing as E:. If this was not a transient device, you should use ChkDsk to verify and fix this corruption.
