hey guys

my lacie porsche usb2 external hard drive was running really slowly
data transfers were way down speed wise, almost as if it was on usb1

i turned it off and turned it back on again and it was fine

should i be worried about the life of the drive?

I'd be more concerned about the life of the box, the hard drive inside the box is quite likely in very good condition.

(I'm no fan of modern LaCie drive-cases, and I'm definitely not a fan of USB-based hard drives.)
