Erase Drive

Hi there,

N00b here, if I erase my drive will the original contents, i.e. the drivers and WD software be erased as well ?

Hi there, don’t call yourself a newbie.

Yes, if you erase the drive then all goes with it, but if you ever need the files  (Smartware and drivers) then you can get them from WD’s website on this link:

SES drivers download and Smartware recovery

You can get the user manual from the “installation” section of your drive :stuck_out_tongue:


I will not post as a newbie in the future. Thanks for the notes, shall look at the solution you posted, for which I thank you.

Any time :slight_smile:
