I’ve first bought Wd elementz 1.5tb and it worked great and now after 1.5 years or so. So when i needed another external hard drive, i decided to go with WD again. I bought Mybook and it worked great for the first month. After about half a year of you, I’ve notice it easily disconnects from my pc when the cable is moved even at the smallest touch. I could live with it i thought. Then the following week i notice how horrendous the transfer speed was. for the first 2 sec, it was transferring at a rate of 120mb/sec then the next second down to a stable 1.5mb/sec transfer. I’m still using its original USB and I’ve tried it on different usb ports on my computer, which is only 3~4 months old. My elementz never had this problem other than the usb part, but very minimal.
Sohere’s where i am, i want to switch the casing altogther, but I don’t know how, and i read somewhere that this is encrpyted. I’m able to move the 1.4tb i have on it right now and move it between my computers to save my memory if all i need is to format this hard drive.
Can I change its casing? Can i also do it for my WD elementz? Thanks in advance.
