Good Support

Standing design is only good for a cheap case (convection), bad for stability. I destroyed one of these by tipping it from standing to laying flat accidentally, while in use. How fragile is that? I managed to get a replacement after shipping it to WD operations in Vietnam (register it on the WD support website with your receipt and request RMA). If you will be carrying this drive around or it won't be in a place that it can't get knocked down flat, do yourself a favour and buy a vertical enclosure instead of the standing one.

I have a lifetime of photos on my PC. I recently bought a MacBook Pro and wanted to have access to my photos. My Book has plenty of space to hold my lifetime of memories.

Great External Drive

The WD My Book Desktop is a great external drive to use as a back-up drive. I opted for the 16TB drive to allow room for future expansion and flexibility. The drive works seamless in the background as expected and does the job as expected.

I'm not 100% sure, but there must have been when I bought mine or I likely would not have purchased it. You should contact WD with that question.

shuckable?
Asked by: Thuan
If you are referring to being able to remove the drive from the enclosure, it is possible according to some online users who have successfully done so but we could not guarantee it since we are unable to verify this information and this will void the warranty on the drive. We do not recommend it.
