Built in software sucks - 5-STAR Drive but Software Killed a Star

  • Summary: Why the UNREMOVEABLE software - WHY - WHY - WHY !!! People don"t like not being able to remove period I only want this for STORAGE. Not for continuous Back-UP. I will continue to purchase internal WD hard drives for Operating Systems. But next time I need a STORAGE drive....WELL... I think you get the picture. Thank you.

Not a bad drive at all....

  • Summary: Others have posted they don't like the software on this drive, okay take it off. I have this drive and liked it so much I bought another to hook to my netgear WIFI router for whole house storage. Works like a charm. No problems at all. Just formatted the drive for NTFS and plugged it into the routers USB port and the surge protecting power center. Instant WHOLE house storage and transfer. I would recommend this drive to anyone looking for affordable storage space.

  • Summary: Overall, a fine hard drive. No problems with the hardware. The software is a little annoying to update but it dosn't need to be updated as far as I can tell. So far it has not given me any problems and it is easy to upload information to it without having to use the built in software. I would recommend this for a first time buyer.

  • Summary: The product meets all my expecations. The only problem is in the installation. There is not any instalation instructions and there is notan operators manual. You can print a manual after the devise is up and running. It automatically backs up my computer.
