You owned an HD+ for well over a year, I thought they were released in Oct or early Nov. of last year?
Should this be done routinely? I'm on my third devise - to be honest I upgraded from very first version to HD and no posses my second HD - it keeps locking once I power up at 99%. Remembered solution from second devise and just took about 45 minutes to get everything back - don't know how long it will last - I love this thing but if this happens again will move on to something else
