When I hook up a WD My Book 3TB external hard drive to my 2016 MacBook Pro via a third party USB-C to USB-A hub and let the computer sleep during the night, this is what I’m greeted with the next morning (see image, Norwegian OS). What gives? Which compoonent should I blame? I can also hear the drive at night spinning up and spinning down continuously.
