Help. How can I remove the WD Smartware icon on my desktop. I have 2 external drives and it is totally annoying

Have you tried using the new Mac VCD manager with your drives?

You might want to link to just the main URL in case WD decides to update the article (which they tend to do rather frequently when new products/os’s/etc. are released). This way it doesn’t send someone to the middle of the article, to a spot that doesn’t make any sense… for example the one you listed above would be:
