    Does it's job well

    It was late in being delivered but I would blame that more on the post office than the manufacturer. I have not owned it for to long to have had mush of a chance to find to many faults but so far it seems to work as one would have have expect. I do have one issue but it's more the industry than this product it's self and that is that there is less room on the drive than is advertised. When they say that there is so much room on the drive that is not usable space but space before all the stuff on the drive that takes up space on the drive so it's usable.

    Luv It!

    Hello, I bought a 14TB external drive, the drive arrived on time, but encountered two issues, 1. The drive is extremely noisy, like a burst of shots every time I write about it, 2. The transfer rate really changes, and sometimes drops to 7 mb / s and does not maintain a high transfer rate And uniform, should the product be returned or can they be remotely inspected and repaired? I would love for you to get back to me, thank you

    Can it be formatted for use with MacOS?
    Asked by: Lawrence
    when you format it with mac os does this apply? It was writtten by a user above: Be careful with WD My Book drives. They use hardware encryption and it doesn't matter if it's set on or off. If the enclosure dies before the hard drive, you cannot simply use another enclosure to retrieve your files. You will have to go through WD and will usually be charged an exorbitant amount for data retrieval. Most people recommend getting WD Elements drives
