I really didn't want to buy WD again but there is no perfect back up

Tiffany deRamos, Amazon

  • Summary: Recently I had one of these fail and I used this for parts. Unfortunately I had to pay a data recovery company 500 to get my data. I really didn't want to buy WD again but there is no perfect back up. The downside for WD is that your data is encrypted.

A very portable drive

Michael B., Newegg
26 October 2012
  • Summary: 1. Backup software. There are numerous Backup software solutions for PCs. I prefer to just "drag and drop" files from my PC to my various external drives (I own many drives from different vendors). The down side is you must manage the backups yourself (and remember to do them periodically).
  • Pros: The WD My Passport 1TB hard drive is a high capacity, good performance, and very portable solution to transport or backup your files. 1. S.M.A.R.T. data. Model: WDC WD10JMVW-11S5XS0 Firmware: 01.01A01 LBA: 1953458176 Cache size: 8192 KB RPM: 5400 SATA Gen2 3.0 Gb/s: Supported 2. Very portable. Th...

The drive inside the enclosure is SATA, however from what I've read, WD packages the SATA/USB bridge directly on the drive controller board (note: I did not open the enclosure to verify this). This means the SATA/USB bridge is not a separate card that can be removed from the drive. The up side...

Lost everything!

Good S., Newegg
8 June 2011
  • Pros: None known.
  • Cons: Our computer was crashing, so we downloaded everything on the hard drive and unplugged it from the computer.

THEY WORK...

Anonymous, Newegg
3 February 2010
  • Summary: I use several at a time. Don't always mount with the drive letter assigned to them. Often needs reboot to mount, then drive letters will be reshuffled to other drives causing pathing issues.
  • Pros: Quiet, inexpensive, Firewire, Esata
  • Cons: none really, I didn't pay for them so I can't complain.
