I bought a MBL 3TB a couple weeks back to use as a wireless solution for both TimeMachine and to have another partition to store files on since my computer drive is near full. I want to back up from that other partition (guess it’s called a share) to my cloud backup which is Spider Oak.
Whenever I want to access a file on my mac from the MBL, I need to click on GO —> Network and then wait for the computer to login to the drive which can take from 5 to 30 seconds. That is very annoying but the underlying issue is that it keeps logging out, dissapearing from Finder, causing Time Machine to not find the drive, Spider Oak to not find the drive, and another program I am using to make automatic backups every time I save to another share (Scrivener).
Does anyone have any ideas what I can do? I’m sure such a topic exists in the forum somewhere but I couldn’t find one. My apologies if I missed it…
