The 18 TB drive is recognized as 16 TB on my acer concept3 D laptop that runs windows 10. Have I been sent the wrong drive? Another question: can the drive be used between apple and pc (I use both).
Asked by: aravindhan
I would check the disk formatting options. To ensure it is being properly utilized on apple or pc operating systems both FAT32, and exFAT are compatible.

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
