Would not format
on January 7, 2016
I intended to use this as a clone of my OS drive as a backup.
Could not get it to format or stay formatted on two different computers, one Windows 7 and the other Windows 10, both through administrative accounts using disk manager. The drive would fail a format, or would format and then disconnect, reconnect and not be formatted after. Gave up after 6 tries between both computers using various different byte allocations.
Amazon like a champ though refunded my money and I shipped it back to them.
First Western Digital drive I've had problems with out of the box in over 15 years.
