I’m having trouble with a newly purchased external SSD. I’m currently using it to store photos and edit them within Lightroom. After 5min of not being used (ex. watching a YouTube video and not using Lightroom), when I go to use Lightroom again, the SSD and Lightroom will totally freeze up and I have to force quit. This same thing happens with spinning HDs, but it’s usually only a few second delay before they come back to life. This SSD just gives me beachballs.
- My laptop is a 2015 13” rMBP running the latest version of OS X
- SSD is a Samsung 850 Evo
- It’s in an enclosure connected via USB directly to the rMBP
