Nice drive for backup

on 5/1/2012

I am using this G-Drive with my MacBook Pro running Lion for TimeMachine backups. I had seen comments about several other drives I had considered that they didn't work well with TimeMachine on Lion, but so far (only a few days) this seems to work well. Actually, I partitioned in two for storage and TM. I don't find it too noisy. The light, as others have noted, is an extremely bright white light, so I wouldn't want it pointing toward me. Since my room is not dark, I don't really notice it. Read More
