I just got a 500GB 7200RPM G-Drive mini external hard drive, to use with Time Machine on my home iMac. I was wondering if I should keep the drive on at all times or should only start it up when I am going to manually backup my data. What are the pros and cons to doing either of these methods? Any help would be welcome. Thanks.
