i have one and it has a on/off switch in the back. Should i leave the drive on continuously even when not using it? or turn it on when i want to use and turn it off when i finish? i am asking because i do not want to mess up this drive.
If you turn off when you are done, you will extend the life of the drive as they are rated by time on not time used. Switching on and off should be no problem but I wouldn't do so just to save a few minutes of on time.
