5 out of 5 eggs How to Fix Mac Settings 05/29/2014

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus 4TB USB 3.0 Desktop External Hard Drive STDT4000100

Pros:

Inexpensive, small, separate power. Works OK with Mac IF you turn off "Put hard disks to sleep when possible"

Cons:

Mac & Seagate "idle/sleep" don't get along smoothly in some configurations, resulting in the Mac losing sight of the disk.

Other Thoughts:

I adjusted the Mac's Energy Saver settings and haven't had any more trouble with the Seagate vanishing. Backups are happening as expected and I sleep better at night.
