No matter how long I leave it doing this, it does not recognise the drive. My son led me to this ubit. Like it so much I bought a second to use as a backup. Rated 5 out of 5 by arutz from The Strongest In my opinion the best external drive, quite fast and very strong. The drive makes a ‘tick noise’ Thats the only way I can describe it It sounds like when a hdd is accessing data, but makes the noise once every few seconds. This thread is locked.
