My system: iMac Early 2008, OSX 10.10.5, MyBookLive
The MyBookLive (MBL) is not connecting to the iMac (Connection Failed), although it is connected via the Router and Wireless network - I can see it in the list of items (PC’s, printers, etc.) connected to the iMac when I open a folder. The MBL will not mount to the desk-top. However, although the drive is supposedly not mounted, the green light is flashing indicating that the drive is reading/writing to/from the HD on my computer - OR is it reading/writing to some-else’s computer in Timbuctoo? Is there a way I can determine who is accessing this MBL and/or what it is that is being read or written? I recently uploaded several large movie files and it is possible that the drive is performing some routine maintenance - e.g. Disk or File optimization. Is it possible that the drive is infected with a Virus? Is it ever necessary to Optimize this drive? If so, how would one go about it. The utilities I have, do not see/recognize a network drive. I really don’t understand what my drive is currently reading or writing, since technically it is not mounted to the desk-top (although it does appear in the Finder). THANK for and info you may be able to provide.
