Copying files to External Drive

I just hooked up an external drive and am copying 150Gb to it. The Apple TV went into screen save and I can’t get out. Are my files still copying? It’s been a few hours, but now I can’t see the comforting “This could take a while”.
Should I leave it overnight? or pull the plug, turn off the screensave function and start over?

Thanks

This morning I answered my own question. Just wait longer. Despite being locked out by the screensaver, the files finished transferring.

Yes, depending on how much media you have it can take AWHILE (4-5 hours). :slight_smile:

Can you transfers files on your pc and reattach the HD to the ATV?

Not when setting up the drive as primary storage. That transfer must be done on the AppleTV.
