I’m wondering if anybody has experienced this, or has any comments/suggestions.
I recently purchased a 1.5 TB MyBook Home external HD to use for TimeMachine.
I migrated TimeMachine to the new 1.5 TB from my ‘old’ 1 TB MyBook Essential using the Disk Utility.
Both the new drive and the old were reformatted as HFS+.
The 1 TB MyBook was nice an quiet, and only made subtle noise when TimeMachine was doing its thing.
The new 1.5 TB is noisy as hell. It sounds like there is CONSTANT disk activity when there shouldn’t be any. Any idea what’s going on. If this is the ‘normal’ noise level for this drive, then I don’t think I want to keep it.
TimeMachine is configured to run only once per day (in cron), so there should be no activity outside of that time (with the exception of the occasional time when I launch Finder…).
