Your hard drive keeps telling me I have a problem with the RAID configuration and there is nothing wrong with it! Very frustrating, AND this on top of one of your Element 10TB drives losing a password and therefore I LOST ALL MY PHOTOGRAPHY!!! This may well be my tenth and final WD Drive ever...

question

I would buy this WD MY Book except for the propriety encryption. It is just what I am looking for. Can this Duo be backed up to another non-encrypted drive or does the encryption prevent this ??
Asked by: Gary S.
I have the same concern. The WD web site states Set a personalized password to activate hardware encryption and data protection. which implies that it would be off until activated but I would still test it by pulling a drive and sticking it in another enclosure to see if it can be read.

question

Can I replace these 2 red drive to 10 TB gold ? will it inrease my read/write speed ?
Asked by: Oudom R.
A hard drive's performance is best measured by data throughput and usually measured in gigabytes (or gigabits) per second. Data throughput is directly related to how densely data is packed on the hard drive (areal density) and the speed at which the platters rotate (RPM). Comparing the performance and read/write speeds between two hard disk drives that have identical areal density specifications (BPI or bits per inch, and TPI, or tracks per inch), a 7200 RPM drive will deliver data about 33% faster than the 5400 RPM drive.
