G-Raid Blinks Constantly

Postby orion2509 » Oct 16th, '13, 06:02

My G-Raid blinks non stop and makes crazy sounds without end.

is this a sign my drive is soon to fail....

it's only 3 months old and has quite a lot of stuff on it?

The drive works and shows on my desktop....I can copy files to it but the light blinks non stop and it sound like it is spinning and working non stop even when not being written to?

Hi orion2509,

Thanks for posting. On some mac systems we sometimes see where spotlight indexes a drive constantly. We are not sure why it does this on some systems and not others, but you can add the drive to the folder exclusion list under the privacy tab in the spotlight preferences. In most cases spotlight is the cause and this would alleviate the problem. Please let me know of the results.
Regards
