After having trashed 2 Porsche Design Lacie drives for malfunctioning, I should have known better - but a few years ago I was again tempted by their aesthetics and bought a 1 TB Little Big Disk to use as my TimeMachine backup. Today, for the second time in about a month, TimeMachine fails to access the drive and tells me to format it asap. I can still copy my backup files first, but we're talking 400 GB so that will take forever. After which I have to start building my new backup, again hours of working on a less responsive Mac. Should I start looking out for a drive other than Lacie?
