My MBL bricked and now has a permanent amber LED. I have the repleacement from the RMA request already. But, before I send back the original unit, does WD guarantee that the data on the drive will not be stolen or otherwise compromised? I cannot access it now to erase it, and some I the files I have stored have sensitive information. How safe is it to return it, even under warranty? Perhaps I am better off to eat the cost of this purchase; that will be cheaper than haven a stolen identity or bank acocounts accessed.
