    Drive works fine, but beware included utility software Based on the drive itself and the backup software, I would have given this product 5 stars–it is very quiet in operation, quiet enough to be left running full time on your desk. The easy-to-use included backup software can continually backup files each time there is a change or you add a new one (or you can choose to do periodic backups), and even automatically can keep up to 25 earlier versions of files that you’ve modified (you set the number archived). Why then only 3 stars? Because the drive comes with drive utility software that has a glitch. After installing the drive, before doing anything else, I ran the drive diagnostics; it passed the SMART Status and Quick Drive tests (both very quick to run), but about 30% of the way through failed the Complete Drive Test, which takes hours to run. I ran all the tests again, got identical results, then called WD tech support. Based on my results, they said the drive was defective, and that I should return it to Amazon, which I did…

    How to format for Mac & be sure to check the prices. Be sure to check the various sizes, as the larger drives sometimes are only a few dollars more. In recommend getting the biggest drive you can afford as sometime you may/will need it. The 3TB drive was only $20 more than the 2TB drive which isn’t much for 50% more space.If you’re a Mac user setting up or erasing a flash, thumb or hard drive up with your computer is super easy follow these steps.1. Plug in the the drive2. Open up disk utility found in your applications folder inside the utilities folder3. Next select the newly plugged in a hard drive and on the right-hand side you should see partition click on that.4. Then inside that screen on the partition layout drop-down choose how many partitions you’d like to set up. I generally go with one partition and just use folders to organize my files.5. Then on the right-hand side you can name the partitions and select the format. If you are transferring video files I highly recommend you…

    Another solid WD product I purchased this drive largely based upon a specific need for a USB 3.0 product with 4TB of storage. I’ve owned many WD internal and external HD products over time and have not had any drive failures to date over many years. I purchased this drive specifically as a backup storage drive attached to a Synology 1813+ NAS unit. This required a reformat to EXT4 as the drive comes natively formated in NTFS. The Synology NAS schedules backup to this drive of selected folder shares using the “Time Backup” software available from Synology. I’m not utilizing any of the software included from WD with this drive (backup, cloud, etc.) as the Synology NAS has its own software for each of these purposes.The drive itself is similar in size to other My Book drives. The plastic casing is certainly not as nice as the aluminum finish on the WD My Book drives that I have for my Macs, but it is similar to the black of the Synology unit and overall looks good. The power adapter is…
