Defecting from Windows
My iMac runs Mavericks, and I run Windows in Parallels. Previously, I set my 1TB external drive to connect to Windows by default. I now want it to default to connecting to OS X, but I can’t work out how to change this. Steve Mapstone It’s very slightly different between versions of Parallels, but if you open Parallels’ preferences and click the Devices or USB tab, you’ll see every device for which Parallels remembers your preference. Select your drive in this list and press the minus button to clear its setting. Ensure “Ask me what to do” is chosen under “When a new external device is detected”, above, and Parallels will ask what to do when you next connect the drive.
