Urgent, will my hard drive be rejected for sticker?

Hi, I purchased a hard drive from Amazon Warehouse (Amazon.com’s discount store) but it arrived with a yellow sticker with a serial number/barcode. The sticker is partially on the hard drive label but is not covering any text. Here is a pic of the sticker on the hard drive: (deleted)

The drive fails the Data Lifeguard diagnostic tests so I want to RMA it. Will this sticker Disqualify the hard drive from being RMA’ed from WD?

Please disregard, i got a quick reply via Email Support. They said it’s acceptable for RMA after i sent the pic.

Thanks WD!


unless it’s plain outright fraud, wd will usually take care of you.  they always have for me.
