Black Duet / Drive Failures

Recommended Posts

I bought a BlacX Duet Hard Drive Enclosure Docking Station for my new Mac Pro 2013 model.  Everything was working fine until I set "put hard drives to sleep when possible" in System Preferences.  I shut down the computer at night, started it in the morning and now both drives are damaged.

Drive1: WD 2TB Caviar HDD, Windows 10 OS is damaged and cannot be repaired (I use Windows via Parallels)  I can access User files using Finder but Windows is damaged and will not Boot.

Drive2: Intel 520GB SSD is no longer recognized in Finder nor Disk Utility.  I tried it on a different Mac and a Windows machine, the disk is not recognized.

Did Sleep cause this?  Does the BlacX Duet support sleep?
