External USB hard drive "loosing" connection [Maxtor onetouch]

I recently bought a Maxtor onetouch extenal USB drive 500GB for backup for
my ubuntu dapper system.
Every morning the backup script fails because it has problem in accessing
the drive. Once I manually remount(sudo umount /dev/sda1; sudo mount
/dev/sda1) the drive and restart backup it works fine.
Has anyone seen this problem before? Any workarounds for this?


--snip from /etc/fstab--
/dev/sda1        /var/backup    ext3    rw 0     0
