I bought 2 1.5 TB GoFlex for Mac drives in order to store and backup my very large photo collection. Hooked one of them up using the firewire and transferred all my photos in Aperture using the "relocate masters" tool. It was easy and worked worked well. However, now I have these problems:
1. Aperture is constantly "processing" something and after it does that for maybe 15 min, the computer locks up
2. If I stop the processing, it's just a matter of time before lockup happens anyway
3. switch to USB cable makes no difference, still locks up
4. No problems if I disconnect the GoFlex. Computer functions normally.
So I am not sure if this is a problem with Aperture or the external drive. If I keep Aperture closed, I can access the GoFlex and see all my photos and it works fine. Any ideas?
