1 out of 5 eggs Problems with TimeMachine on Mac 11/05/2010

This review is from: Seagate FreeAgent Desk 1TB USB 2.0 3.5" External Hard Drive ST310005FDA2E1-RK Silver

Pros: Good price, nice looking case.

Cons: Difficult to format for use on Mac OS X. Seagate power settings interfere with TimeMachine settings.

Other Thoughts: I bought this drive to replace a smaller Western Digital drive. My setup is to have this drive physically connected to an iMac, and then backup both the iMac and a Macbook (via WiFi) using time machine. The power settings of the Seagate drive continually caused problems, even after installing the fix found at < >. I have since returned this and purchased a larger WD drive that has worked without problems.
