Orange light on HD-HC250IU2 external drive
« on: February 13, 2009, 12:58:24 am »
   

I've had this drive for a couple of years and it has always worked great.  When I turned it on tonight, the red light which blinks while the drive is in use has turned solid orange.  Other than that, it seems to be normal.  The computer sees the drive, and I can copy data from it and write to it.  There is about 19 gig free on it.  Is the drive getting ready to fail, or is this just an indicator that the drive is reaching capacity?

 

Thank you for your help.

That tells you that the drive is more than 90% full.
