Xbox one randomly reformatting external hdd

Just like the title says, I'm having issues with my Xbox One and the external HDD. So far it's done it twice where I've signed on and everything from my drive was wiped without me touching it. I'm just wondering if anyone else is having this issue and if there is a solution for it that maybe I'm just not seeing.

Sorry to hear it.  Which brand hard drive are you using and how old is it?  Some hard drive brands do not play well with Xbox at all.

Although it would be a pain I could suggest connecting the hard drive to your pc and formatting it to see if that solves the issue.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.

Great! Thanks for marking this as the answer.
