    Why is there a MobileBackups in iMovie with my EHDD?
    My MBP is filling up and I want to move the raw footage I have in iMovie (8.0.6) on an EHDD.

    I plugged in my WD Passport 2TB EHDD, where I also have TimeMachine backups from my MPB and my wife's MBA, and iMovie shows 2 EHDD icons in the Event Library box (bottom left).

    These are:
    Untitled (my WD Passport)
    MobileBackups (this one has an exclamation icon attached to it)

    So, what is the MobileBackups icon?
    15" MBP, 2.4 GHz, 8 GB RAM, OSX 10.8.3
    iPod Classic (7th generation)
    iPad Mini, 64GB Cellular (1st generation), iOS 6.0.2
    iPhone 5

    Specs:
    15" MBP '06 2.33 C2D 4GB 10.7; 13" MBA '14 1.8 i7 8GB 10.11; 21" iMac '13 2.9 i5 8GB 10.11; 6S
    Can only suggest looking at the EHD in Finder to determine what iMovie might be seeing as a 2nd drive.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
