Re: Blue font for name of external drive
Thanks spank_fusion, that's what it was. For the external drive, under the "general" tab in the disk properties box there were two choices at the bottom which you could either check or uncheck. Both boxs, "Compress drive to save disk space" and "Allow index service to this disk for fast file searching", were checked. I unchecked the "Compress drive to save disk space" choice, hit "apply", and after a few minutes of it adjusting itself, the blue font was back to being black.
Am I correct to assume that uncompressed is better? That is what my internal drive was set to. Also, should I keep the other choice, "Allow index service to this disk for fast file searching", selected as it is now?
