Currently the western digital my passport essential SE portable 1TB is only £90 from currys, would you guys say its worth it? I’m a uni student at the moment so can’t be having all this SES driver ribbish popping up on each computer I use. The hard drive will also have to be formatted into two partitions for linux and windows.
Is it not just possible to boot into gparted and manually remove the whole virtual CD drive from there, and just create a new partition table? Or any other way of doing a low level format, or will the virtual CD and crapware still stick through that? And how many people would say they can’t move their drive at all without it disconnecting? Thanks, Adam.
