This company makes software that is very dangerous and useless. The included software with this drive should be ...

Legs, Amazon

  • Summary: Be very wary about anything from Western Digital. These drives will automatically format, reformat, erase all data, and do so in a very convincing and un-recoverable way. PLEASE NOTE: IT WILL DO THIS TO ANY AND ALL OTHER DRIVES CONNECTED TO YOUR COMPUTER.

Warning!

Chris Crews, Amazon
25 January 2015
  • Summary: Item will not work for long. Perhaps 6 months at best. No matter how many times you replace it, it will not work for long. In the end, you are left with a paper-weight.

  • Summary: Configuration software is not currently compatible with OSX Mavericks. I need to use this drive as mirrored so need to use the software. WD has given no indication of when/if it will be compatible. I had no choice but to send this back.

Raid0 slower than single drives.

Taryntoo, Amazon
4 June 2012
  • Summary: Reviewing 6TB Studio II: This "high performance" drive is slower in Raid0 than many single FW800 drives I use. Drive Genius benchmarks were very disappointing, with results in the 2-50 MB/second range, hardly better than I'd expect from a USB2 connected external.

Not good.....

E.L., Amazon
17 May 2012
  • Summary: I had high hopes for this drive. RAID 1 capability, ready to use with a Mac right out of the box. It didn't disappoint....until less than a week of usage and one of the drives failed. I am returning this one and exchanging for a new unit.

Crashed and is now dead

Allen_TX_Reviewer, Amazon
8 March 2012
  • Summary: I used this drive as my Mac "Time Machine" backup drive. The drive started running really, really slow. I ran "Verify" with Disk Utility. It kept bumping up the time to complete, 3 hours, 4 hours, 6 hours. Then I heard a thump, thump, thump from the drive. Ack!
