I have a MyBook Duo that I use for backup, syncing photos, etc. I do not use any automated backup but rather use a couple backup programs (Acronis True Image monthly and Backup4All a couple times a week). I sync photos as needed.
I have been plugging into USB port when I was going to do those backups but wonder if leaving it plugged in all the time is better. Certainly easier if always plugged in but are there other benefits/issues to leaving it plugged in.
I have Windows and all programs/data on a SSD so boot time is very nice @ 30 secs and programs load quickly. I don’t want to spoil that if being plugged in will impact it.
Any suggestions or advise?
