I’ve been buying WD drives all my life (and that’s _a lot_ of drive, since I work in IT).
Then I run into this nightmare that’s “WD Smartware”. Now I have to spend hours to try
and remove it to _just get a hard drive that I can write files to, and read files from_
Doubly frustrating to think that WD spent money and effort to write this crapware, which
in the end the consumer pays for.
This is Game Over for me, no more WD drives.
Once it’s off, I’ll post some instructions, or at pointer to existing ones that work.
