    Hello again,
    I am moving tomorrow and my iMac is coming with me. I have a G-Tech external drive for TM. IIRC, I should eject my G-Tech before powering it down and disconnecting it from my iMac, correct? Then just shut down my iMac and very carefully move it to its new home.
    Thank you for your help! :)

    I don't think it makes a difference as when you shut-down your mac the drive will be unmounted anyway and then you can power it down.
