    Question strange HD icon appeared
    Could someone tell me what the attached icon means?
    When I first plugged in my HD (it is Western Digital btw), it was a typical orange HD icon.
    Now it's got this strange meter/gage image next to it. I don't know what it means.
    Could use your help!

    Does the drive have some kind of Turbo feature?

    Looks like a HD icon from icon factory. Sure you did not download it and forget?
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    Back to my old 2.2GHz C2D MB after selling my MBP and wondering what my next Mac will be :)
    It definitely looks like one of their smartware images
