I have two of these units. Have had them for about 5 months. One of them periodically stops working. It is connected to a W2008R2 server for imaging backups. It will work for awhile and then it just stops. When I check it the drive is still spinning But the light is off and the server doesn't see it. It formatted NTFS. If I unplug the power it stops spinning but if I just plug it back in it spins but still is not live. If I leave the power off for 10 minutes or so it starts working again and works for a few days. I don't know if it is just a bad unit or if it has a heat issue. It doesn't feel very warm. Both of the drives I have are in the same cabinet on different servers and the other drive is working fine.

It sounds like the power adapter might be bad. I would try switching it with the other one and see if the problem sticks with the power adapter.
