Why is Omnifocus accessing my external USB drive


I’ve noticed a delay when finding a Context and realised it is because I have to wait for my external USB drive to power up.

The context search whilst you are typing drop down box often pauses before allowing me to continue typing.

My external USB drive is only used as a TimeMachine so of no interest to OF.

Probably an OSX problem rather then OF2 but I thought I’d post it here to see if anyone considers it an OF problem.


You’ve confirmed that if you unplug your USB drive, the context list no longer pauses while you’re typing?

You might want to contact omnifocus@omnigroup.com so that we can collect some data from your computer.
