Say, I bought an external terabyte Toshiba hard drive about a week ago, and I am puzzled as to why it comes to life for no apparent reason. I suppose this sounds dumb to you smart ppl in here, but I don't know much and it's my first external drive, ever. I might be watching a video or reading a web page and suddenly the external drive comes to life without provocation. I'm just wondering what the heck that thing is doing, and if it isn't a sign that my paranoid self has some secret code in my system poking around my private bytes and sectors. I tried to Google this, but found nothing good. Any feedback?
