    So I have the OWC Thunderbay hooked up via Thunderbolt 2 and a dedicated CF reader (Lexar) on USB 3.

    I disconnected the USB card reader last night to attach my Xrite calibrator and received a warning from SoftRAID that my Thunderbay was disconnected improperly. I did not touch the Thunderbolt cable.

    I freaked out a bit and was thankful nothing was writing to the drive at the time. Ran an overnight validation and everything is okay.

    Any thoughts on why this might happen?

    Thanks,

    E

    The latest El Cap has some funny things going on for as few of us with USB. May be related if your on 10.11.1 or higher. Or might be just a one time system glitch unless it keeps happening.
