to add another complaint to the Smartware list: This awful piece of bloatware stops my brand new MacBook Pro running Snow Leopard from waking up from sleep – I have to do a force shutdown and restart.There are other Mac users who have reported this in th Apple forums.
It also slows the machine down no end.
I have bought WD drives for the last two years but will never do so again until I can get Smartware 100% OFF the drives – not just hidden, as their latest ‘fix’ enables you to do.
WESTERN DIGITAL: WAKE UP AND GIVE US THE OPTION TO GET RID OF THIS TERRIBLE PIECE OF BLOATWARE EASILY – otherwise you will deservedly lose market share.
Next time I’m going to stump up more $ for a LaCie.
