My Book Essential WDBACW0010HBK-UESN Advanced or not?

Hello everybody

WD Align is telling me in XP that the above disk is optimally aligned, but not a WD advanced format disk. It does however recognise my Caviar Green as a WD AFD.

Any ideas anybody?


Hey that’s a Good  one :smiley:

The drive is an AF drive but WD Align is not for external drives. There for is not able to tell if drive inside the My Book enclosure is AF or not. Drive is already aligned.

I did some home work and found this article about AF drives , hope this helps :,209,316/session/L3RpbWUvMTMwMjE5MTc1MS9zaWQvQWlReXZVcWs%3D
