If you want some extra work, you can look for third party backup software, reformat the drive and go that route (I am using SyncToy from Microsoft).
I bought a couple of these hard drives some time ago: one stopped working after the first two weeks and the other one stopped working after 6 months of use.
Now the nice thing about a large external drive such as this one is that it has tons of space and I can just back up everything and keep several copies.
Lotta space and it works great. Have 3 WD Passport drives and have had zero issues.Published 4 days ago by E. Leopold
