I recently bought a Macally G-350SUA enclosure and Western Digital 1TB hard drive to use with time machine (and other things). When I turn it on it works fine, but after a while weird things happen. it seems like the hard drive sleeps and then won't wake up. Sometimes when I get on the computer the time machine icon in the menu bar is spinning and says "Preparing back up" and I see that the last back up was a long time ago (days). Other programs will act weird. Namely, System Preferences I can open the first time and it works fine, but when I close it the icon stays in the doc and it won't get focus again. It won't quit if I try Force Quit or even if I do a kill -9 in the terminal. Sometimes Finder will act weird as well and I can't shut down the computer until I turn off the external hard drive. If I turn the external drive off and turn it on again everything works fine. Is this an issue that just happens with Time Machine sometimes (if I leave TM turned off everything works fine) or is there an issue with the enclosure? Thanks for any help you can give.
