hello everyone... I am looking for a firewire HD to use with my Macbook to store all my Ableton Live files and clips for performance. I have never used or purchased an external HD so this wil be my first. The Lacie HD's were recommended and I will be using it with my Macbook, 2 MIDI controllers, and a M-Audio FW410 as my audio interface. I have deleted most of the programs on my Macbook because I am dedicating my Macbook for Ableton Live performance and DJing. I am not too familiar with OSX however is there a feature to clean the HD or defrag like with Windows. I know some maintance on Windows doesn't have to be done on OSX. I just want to perform some maintenance (like I do with Windows) for max performance...;D

Based upon what I've read in several other posts, defragging your HD is not necessary with OS X - well, not on your part. It does this automatically each time you install/remove an application, and maybe someone else can mention other times when OS X will do this.
