    I read there were problems with the GoFlex Home series of external hard drives, which worries me because I have a FreeAgent GoFlex external hard drive and I really need to have it functional in Lion for backups. So, for anyone with the FreeAgent series of hard drives, are you having issues with it in Lion? RoaringApps doesn't help.

    It beachballs frequently and makes weird screeching noises but other than that seems to read and write ok. I have the 500GB model.

    Hth.

    I've had no problems with my external goflex.

    Just bought one for temporary backups while I wait for WD to catch up with their NAS firmware for Time Machine compatibility. Works just fine so far.

    Mine appears to be working, but I haven't exactly run it over the obstacle course yet. -Too many other blazes to put out.

    No problems here with the 500GB model using USB.

    Good; that's the same model I have.

    Thanks, folks. Might upgrade to Lion then.
