Hi! How do I properly turn off my 20TB My Book Duo? I’m on macOS High Sierra.
What I normally do is I eject the drive via Finder but the Front LED Indicator does not turn off.
I do hear the drives spin down but I still hear it at idle.
Reading User Manual, I tried to press once the rear-facing power button but the Front LED Indicator does not turn off.
I then press & hold for 4 seconds the rear-facing power button the Front LED Indicator does turn off.
What I am worried about with the 2nd manner of power button is is that it describes itself as “force a shut down without any consideration for gracefully stopping services or clearing cache”.
Other WD external drives that I have owned in the past like the My Book Desktop, My Book Essential & My Book Studio do not have this problem turning them off when I press the power button once after I eject it.
