  • Good drive, not durable

    from Edmonton, AB on July 2, 2018

    The size, cost, convenience and USB3.0 support is great. I bought two. They are quiet and well-sized. However, they are not durable; in the process of backing one up it just died. About 10 minutes before it fell off the couch, and disconnected; I reconnected it and all seemed well, and then the entire Windows Explorer froze out. I rebooted my computer and then the drive would not show up in MyComputer, device manager, or in command prompt diskpart. So while it worked great for two years, one minor bump lost about 500gb+ of data. Luckily most of it was redundant.

  • Misleading advertising - No password or encryption

    from North Vancouver, BC on January 14, 2018

    The included "security" features for passwords and 256 encryption does not work with windows 10. I thought this must be just my system, but it's right there on the product info file included in the software. Good thing you made something in 2017 that's compatible with Windows Vista though... So no encryption or password protection at all. Piece of garbage.

    I bought this drive new in October. My Mac frequently does not recognize it, and it often doesn't connect. The cable is flimsy and the drive feels cheap and plasticky. The return policy on hard drives at Best Buy means that if you buy it you can't return it. This product has been a huge disappointment, and I will not be purchasing another Western Digital Drive.
