I know how to disconnect the drive from my system via the “safely remove hardware option” or via the “power button on the drive option”. Can I also just shut down my computer? Will the drive power down on it’s own if I do that? For some reason I’m afraid to try and risk data loss if I screw something up.
U CAN SHUTDOWN THE COMPUTER THAT WILL NOT HARM THE DRIVE NOR THE DATA …
SHUTTING DOWN THE COMPUTER WILL TAKE THE DRIVE TO SLEEP MODE
