    Question please:

    I have a late 2011 13" MacBook Pro - OS X 10.8.2. I have been using a separate USB drive for TimeMachine. All works great.

    However, from time to time when I hook up the external drive I see the icon that appears on my desktop show up in an orange color. Normally it shows as a dark teal color.

    Is there a significant difference between the two colors? :confused:

    Thanks!

    I've noticed that too. Typically external hard drives in OSX show up with an orange icon. A drive used for Time Machine typically shows up as a blue color, with the clock and arrow logo on it.

    I don't think it's anything to worry about.
