I just bought an Iomega 1TB external harddrive for my home laptop( I us eit as adesktop because of space). My friend who is computer savvy told me that I should have it on (ac power) all the time and it should be connected all the time.
I was wondering if data was being written to the external drive, then why can't I turn the power off and disconnect it after I use it. Reconnect and turn the power on when I need to backup files/folders to the external drive.
I asked my friend who installed it the same question, but he won't reply for aome reason?
Thanks for your help.
