I will never purchase a WD product again. Another ...

James Kelly, Amazon
10 November 2014
  • Summary: I will never purchase a WD product again. Another WD hard drive bites the dust. Wasn't the first one for me to kick the bucket but it will be the last. Had this thing full of data, then call of a sudden, all gone. It wasn't even old or worn out; just a faulty product, I suppose.

Not sure what happened. . .

Kayla, Amazon
12 September 2014
  • Summary: The hard drive worked perfectly for about four months, and then suddenly stopped responding. It was never dropped or mishandled, and it lights up whenever I plug it in. For some reason, it just won’t connect to my computer. I would just get it replaced, if I could.

Crashed After File Transfer

B.Flei "Beccs", Amazon
9 September 2014
  • Summary: The device crashed after I transferred all of my information to the hard drive from a laptop that I was trying to empty. Thankfully, I hadn't completely deleted the entire laptop and could restore the transferred information but it took a stressful couple of days to figure it out.

I think my WD My Passport for Mac 1TB Drive committed suicide

M. West, Amazon
5 February 2014
  • Summary: The same day my new 3 TB drive is due to be delivered (I need more storage) my WD My Passport for Mac 1TB Portable External Hard Drive suddenly stopped working this morning. Coincidence? I think not.

Fail

Extra Fu, Amazon
18 November 2013
  • Summary: I think this thing lasted like 3 days before it crashed and I had to send it back. I'm sure it's probably rare that that happens. Still, my next major storage investment will be in a SSD. Tired of failing HDDs.

Don't trust this

Angela J, Amazon
9 August 2013
  • Summary: My first WD Backup drive failed slowly - so I bought a second one in time to get my most valuable files (family photos, the last photo taken of my dog before he died) transferred to the new WD. I don't know why I went with the same company. Unfortunately, I did.

Stopped working.

ADT, Amazon
29 July 2013
  • Summary: This external drive stopped working less than three months after I received it. The icon no longer shows on my mac. It can't be repaired by Disk Utility. Very disappointed. This has been a waste of money.

gustavo, Amazon
29 June 2013
  • Summary: Will not buy this brand again. The whole purpose of a backup disk is that it is supposed to be reliable.
