Hello,

I was just registering my WD Red drive when I noticed a software update for the drive. Is this a recommended update or only if the drive is having issues? The other question I have, is which one to download.

They have three choices listed:

wd5741.exe (x86 and x64)

wd5741x32

wd5741x64

thanks

Hello,

If you are using this drive in Windows then you need:

wd5741.exe (x86 and x64)

If you are using Linux then it is:

“wd5741x32” or “wd5741x64”
