So, I bought a My Book 3TB installed it, installed the latest smartware, WD utilities, WD Security packs for the Mac OSX. Did a firmware upgrade on the drive, did everything. The drive is recognized with the WD Security, so I set a password. Well, I can eject and remount the drive, I can reboot my computer and login to my system and never am I asked for a password to access the My Book hard drive. What’s going on with that? The whole reason I opted for the WD brand at all was for their touting of great security and such. Obviously not the case for me.
Is this normal?
BTW, The My Book is NOT being read in the WD Smartware software either.
