Performed last backup to USB drive a couple weeks ago when using 517. Used native format.
Updated firmware to 571, and now 590. Did not attempt backup when using 571. With 590 I tried 'Local backup' and for about 45 minutes had message "The disk is not ready for backing up now. Please wait'" and Disk Status = "Initiating". During the 45 minutes LEDs on the DS and USB drive kept flashing intermittently.
Then it gave me the message "Backup can only proceed with a backup disk connected. Please make sure a disk is attached and is formatted for backup purposes." and Disk Status = "Off-line"
I powered off and on the USB drive.
Returning to Local Backup, I have the same disk status = off-line message. When I go to USB Disk section I see 'USB Disk 1' folder=not shared, file type=not supported, Used/Total size= 0/0. In the last column it says Status = Normal (haha!).
Have I lost this drive and backed up data?
