Hdd is mounted only for a few seconds

I just set up my Nexctloud Pi from scratch (v1.29.8). I ran nc-automount and it is enabled. On startup, however, I don’t see the drive mounted in /media. when I plug the HDD out and in and keep hitting ls -al, I observe the HDD is mounted. Then the USBdrive symlink is created. After two seconds, both vanish and /media is empty again. What might be going on here?

Sounds like power source issue.
check output of dmesg and ncp-report (both require sudo).

dmesg helped. Infact, the HDD was badly formatted.
