WD Black Label Damaged


I recently damaged the big white label on my WD Black trying to put it into my Lenovo T420s (the old drive is slim, while the new one isnt). I understand the warranty is void now, but my question is: if the label carries any meaningful function i.e. is the drive still useful?

Many thanks.

Hello and welcome to the community,

The label is only necessary to identify the drive in order to process a replacement under warranty.

Take a look at this link for more information.

What would void the warranty on a WD drive

lol its only paper my friend

if the internals of the drive are good the drive willl function just fine




Thanks, I’ve been just thinking it might cover some auxiliary holes or whatever…

maybe only screw holes  doesnt matter anyway
