i have a wd my book essential 2 tb,
i encrypted my drive with wd smartware, but also i know that wd my book essential models does not have HARDWARE ENCRYPTION.
my question is this model has a HARDWARE ENCRYPTION?
if someone break the case and take the harddrive can he use it or still is it encrypted?
i bought a wd my book 4 tb recently.(WD My Book WDBFJK0040HBK 4TB)
i use it to store my dvd movies and connect it to tv. so i do not turn on encryption.
my question is; if the hard drive case brokes, can i use the hard drive as an internal drive without losing existing data . OR
even if i do not use a password, my book 4 tb have a hardware encryption that do not allow to rescue data
