Summary: I bought this and had it for 5 days and the HD intermittently dismounts. When my computer finally does see the HD again, the computer gives a message that the disk is corrupted and needs to be reformatted. Undiscouraged at first, I did what the computer asked me to do, I reformatted the drive and within another day or two, the same issue pops up. I don't recommend this as I have had two other WD hard drives that work much better (Passport Ultras are so reliable).
Summary: I purchased this 3TB drive to store the last 12 years of digital photos on and thousands of files in my iTunes library. It worked for a few months only and then complete disaster struck! The drive had permissions errors which locked me out of write access to the drive. I was able to copy "some" files over before reformatting, but my master Aperture photo library was completely destroyed!
Failed five days after expiration of return eligibility

Summary: The drive worked fine for just over 30 days, then failed to power up. Power supply checks out OK so the problem is with the interface electronics or in the drive itself. Looking for other warranty information...
