Hi, all.

Hello,

I don’t have that information at the moment.

Have you tried creating a support case to get the information directly from WD Support?

Actually, I did it for previous generation and they replied me, “Sorry, but we do not provide any kind of information like that.” It came from a Korean staff.

What a nonsense. I think because I live in Korea now. They hide too many things. I hadn’t had
experience like that while I was in the States. Thus, can anybody who lives in the US ask this issue instead of me? Probably you can ask. Thanks in advance.

I WILL NEVER BUY ANOTHER EXTERNAL WD DRIVE AGAIN!!!

I have DOZENS of them, mostly external! STUPID of me!!!

I will choose CAREFULLY from now on, buy INTERNAL drives, and use my own ENCLOSURES! No more ADVANCED FORMAT ■■■■ nor SMR.
