I have the LaCie Hard Disk Max 2TB .
I've noticed that some of my files (in very rare cases) are corrupted in this storage . Most of them are songs (.m4a , .mp3) . The only option was to find again those songs because their data was deleted (?) just saw an .m4a file of only 24 bytes .
Also , I noticed that sometimes some files are being used by background programs (which have no idea how to find them , And I am not sure if is by LaCie or some of my programs installed in the computer) So I could not move or change them for short while . In last few days there was a short circuit (electricity was shot down for a second) in my apartment so the Hard Drive was also shot down during the background program was accessing the certain files . But it's not first time , many files were corrupt in similar way . I am just afraid that the LaCie drive provides some background processes which can corrupt my files if suddenly turn off the hardware . I am a bit in panic because there are many important files for me such as development projects and other rare private stuff which i have no copies if they lost or corrupt .
I need some help . I don't have any knowledge in storage hardware or how to manage\avoid corruption . I was thinking about some Cloud storage service but I don't like it since I need to synchronise everything . In the meanwhile , I am transferring all my files to the laptop itself which got enough space and showed more reliability than LaCie's reliability .
