No Drive Settings WDBFJK0040HBK-NESN

Just bought a new WDBFJK0040HBK-NESN yesterday to replace my 3 year old 1Tb WD My Book drive that crashed.

I installed the software that came with it and noticed that in the “Settings” page of the Smartware App. there are not any “Drive Settings” like in previous versions of this software. All that’s on that page is “Software Settings”. I tried reinstalling, but still the same.

Did they change the software and eliminate “Drive Settings”, or is something wrong with my drive?


Hello, welcome to the WD Community, the Smartware doesn’t manage the settings on this drive, they are now managed by the WD Drive utilities that can be found on this  link.
