Pass port Ultra

Hi, I have a WD passport ultra, (purchased 2014) now WD tells me that they no longer support this model.
Question. Should I carry on using this as a backup? Do I run the risk of not being able to retrieve files etc? Thanks, G

So ? Just because any company no longer supports product does not mean you can’t use it.

Sure, if it’s working fine then why not ?

Any hard drive (new or old) you buy could fail and lose you data… which is why you should always have a backup of your important data

Yes, but this is the backup drive.
You can make a double backup … just to be safe.
