Hi, I have a 4 TB WD Elements external hard drive which I would like to use to store Dropbox files to. I have been told that if the drive loses connection to my Mac there is a chance that when Dropbox tries to sync files may be deleted.
Is there a way to prevent the external drive from falling to sleep (assuming it does)? If Dropbox is constanlty syncing will the drive be kept awake?
I appreciate this is not completely a WD question but thought you may be able to shed some light.
I’ve turned off ‘Put Hard disks to sleep when possible’ in Energy Saver. Whether this affects external drives I do not know.
