    For some reason my Lacie external drive that's hooked up to my imac is constantly being read for no reason. It's never idle and never rests until I eject it. I'm afraid the drive's gonna fail soon and all my work gone... anyone experienced this? Did a search but can't find anything online

    Are you running Time Machine? Hard drives are made to work, they won't die because of reading. Your internal drive is being accessed all the time
