So i was watching a movie that was saved on an external hard drive plugged in. Half asleep I unplugged the hard drive while the movie was playing and all of a sudden the drive started making noises. Red light started blinking for like 2 minutes and when I plugged it back into my mac it wouldn't read for about 5 minutes. Red light just kept blinking. Then it instantly starting working again. Still works fine the next day but I'm curious if something may have happened inside it thats causing a 'slow death'? Is there a chance of it crashing and losing everything soon based on that one mistake where I pulled it out while it was reading pretty heavily? Not to mention its reaction afterwards. Only reason I'm asking is because I'm about to do a massive software install and the plan was to put it all on that drive. About 700gb worth. Don't wanna go through all that if I need to re do it cuz the drive crashed.
