Purchased a new My Book Essential several weeks ago. When connected the drive has continuous disk activity. The light on the front blinks constantly. Running 10.8.1 with a new 15" MBPro. The disk is partitioned into 3 volumes. 2 are encrypted using Mountain Lion’s encryption.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I’m afraid that the disk will fail more quickly than another vendor’s drive since it is constantly churning.
