Technicolor TG582n Content Sharing USB HD problem??

I have a formated fat32 2tb HD pluged into the USB slot.
The drive can be seen as
Network File Server (Windows Networking)
Server Enabled: Yes
Server Name: Database
Server Description: DSLGateway
Workgroup: WORKGROUP
UPnP AV Media Server
Server Enabled: Yes
Profiler Status: Ready
Database Status: OK
FTP Server
Server Enabled: No
Server Address: NO WAN IP address present
Expansion Desk (Disk 1)
Partition 1 1862.55 GB 1862.55 GB free Yes
I can see the drive from windows and all other devices and also read/write.
The HD randomly keeps dropping from the network and becoming not available, any ideas please?

Keeping an index of a 2TB disk will take up a fair amount of RAM, and the router doesn't have a lot. I'm not certain but wouldn't be surprised if that's why - if you want that much network storage probably better to get a NAS rather than use the inbuilt sharing on the router to be honest.
