    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
