Just curious, the guy at the Apple Store suggested that I erase my new LaCie w/zero. He said it would offer protection?? What does this mean? Thanks.
Well, I guess, you could erase it, but I have never had problems using an external hard drive right out of the box.code777 said:well he actually said, "...it offers a layer of protection from bad sectors" - so not sure what this means or if it is even needed
He probably had a bad experience in the past. I'm sure that he doesn't try to confuse Apple customers. :mac:code777 said:huh, weird - he just said when you hook it up zero it and then use CCC to clone a bootable back up.
So basically its not needed because its brand new out of the box... still no idea y he suggested that though...
