So I've had to download a lot of Prores files lately to an external drive for a project I'm working on. I'm downloading everything from Google Drive and I have Gigabit ethernet so speeds are excellent. I noticed (maybe because it's been a while since I had to download so much) that my CPU and fans go absolutely crazy when I'm downloading... as if I'm rendering. What's going on here? It seems really odd that my computer would act this way when I'm not writing to the internal drive at a high speed... I'm simply utilizing Safari to pass the information along to the external thunderbolt drive. My RAM also gets eaten up if I try to download a few things at once. This is a 2015 MacBook Pro that's getting a little long in the tooth... but I just find it odd that it would act like it's rendering when downloading simple files... even large ones.
