Copy all the files you want to save and the reformat the drive with Disc Utility. Mac OS X (Journaled) format is fine. Once it's clean, drop the files back on. I find that this usually fixes finicky drives. shmcphrsn December 31, 2011 3:06:45 AM Best answer selected by shmcphrsn. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
