De­fect­ing from Win­dows

Mac Format - - APPLE TALK -

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.
