After 3 weeks of purchase, it started making noise whenever i try to copy info into it. Its not working properly and am afraid , i can loose all my data inside it. Am planing to purchase another brand to store the data as the one i bought from you can stop working anytime

This unit sits next to my iMac Studio M1 along with 3 other independent hard drives. Plug and play with a Mac. It's quiet and reasonably quick. Used to back up photos. Although I leave it on the desktop it would be easy to transport - other than being heavier than SSD drives. Interfaces smoothly with automated back up programs - Carbon Copy Cloner and Back Blaze. Great value for 4 TB of storage.

Not the fastest, but for the price it's great. After I make proxies to edit 4k it runs smoothly. I like that the connection is USB-C.

I purchased this for use as a Time Machine for my new Mac Studio. I chose it because of good experiences with other WD drives, the USB-C connection, and it's being formatted for the Mac. Installation was effortless, the drive seems fast enough, and after two weeks, it is working well.

question

Can you directly access files and documents that have been backed up without restoring the backed up file or document? If so, how?
Asked by: Anonymous
If the backup was created with the WD Utilities, you would need to use that software to recover the files. If you used alternate software you would need to review their documentation.

Why is the 5TB double the thickness of the 2TB? I really hope they didn't put 2 HDDs in there.
Asked by: Spineanu
Thank you Moe. You need to fix the specs listing if they are truly the same. Also the photos. If you look closely you will notice a different thickness on the 2TB and 5TB.
