question

Comparing SSD to Wireless Pro: software-wise are they identical? I saw less favorable reviews for magnetic drives, but quite good for SSD versions. Why? Could it be because WD polished the firmware by then? I less worried about the speed as backup takes at night
Asked by: Michael
The Wireless and SSD are identical software wise. The SSD version would be faster than a spindle drive in any case.

At the top of this page there are photos of the device and a video link. Watch the video link (the video is well done) to see how to do things like move files from this device to, say, a laptop. The video shows a lot of how-to scenarios.

If I transfer a partially used SD card (128GB for example), then shoot more photos until full. How does the device handle those old files? Overwrite, duplicate or ignore?
Asked by: Michael
I did this on a recent overseas trip. Once an image file was backed up to the drive it was not duplicated on subsequent automatic copies. I believe it checks both filename and date/size to determine if a file should be copied. Also, I had many filenames get repeated but they were on different dates and therefore placed in different folders.

I have a Marantz bodycam that I'd like to connect to this drive. Anyone have any experience doing so (a GoPro would likely be treated the same)? For some reason the Marantz can be "squirrelly" about mounting under Linux and I wouldn't want to run into the same problem with the My Passport.
Asked by: David
This drive can be reformatted to whichever file system works best with your body cam.
