Truly apologize, I thought it was written by WD staff - hard to distinguish if community is a real community driven by volunteers or handled by their support.
Even though I appreciate your engagement to community of WD etc, your response is also a bit too strong. If we want a company to be perceived as honest and pro-consumer, then they should support newer versions of operating systems. And, you know, I’ve got
2011 2012 macbook which is still supported by Apple and their newest macOS version i.e. Mojave, so I would appreciate WD to support it, too. Let’s think about the environment - should I dispose this excellently working drive and buy a new one? Just because WD is unwilling to provide a necessary software updates?
Regarding Apple - even if I was to use the newest of the newest macbook with Type-C only, I bet there are dongles to connect to Firewire no problem (by daisy chaining usb-c -> Thunderbold -> Firewire - correct me if I’m wrong), and still - don’t forget that, those WD drives had USB and SATA connectors. So, please don’t redirect me to Apple and their decisions. This is not the point, the point is that WD should provide software for their drives especially if one of their purpose was for back-up /RAID-0/. If they don’t want to maintain their older software they cloud open-source it and people like you and me could adjust it to the current OSX/macOS versions.
So, please, jebusx - forgive me it wasn’t personal, and WD - if anyone from WD reads that - think about their customers and the environment.
