If that works, go about your day without any plugged in. If the problem doesn't come back, you can assume it's a peripheral. If it does, note what happens right before it occurs again (what software you had open and what you recently opened).
A 1.5 TB. Seegate HD is connected to my Mac, where I save all clips, rendered files, Cach media files, rushs and all other media. about 1 TB is used. Mac HD cap. about 60 GB is used. Is it possible all these problems because of a EX. Drive!!!
