The setup, size, connector, fit and finish, utility app, security app, and read / write speeds are reviewed. The drive is pre-formatted with HFS+J so it is ready to go for Mac Computers.

I used the Time Machine on the Hard Disk, it erased the format on it and made it corrupt. It wasn’t readable after that.

I just bought a WD 1T for my 21.5 iMac to put all new data for 2018. (I have a Omega for all data prior to 2018). My question is do I leave the WD plugged in all the time and on? TM will backup as stated. Or should I eject and backup myself once a week? (Opening up TM and WD hard drive) All videos I have watching nerve says about leaving all on all the time. Thanks. Linda

Raunaq Puri says:

What about reformatting the drive completely to take Backups from Time Machine?
Then the WD Software would have to be erased, right?

Does anyone know if this will work for a ps4

Aaqil Faizal says:

Dost it support otg and on tv?

Dustin Valdez says:

Can you rename this drive without having to reformat it?  I know that if I go to disk utility I can select erase, then rename it there, but I don’t want to erase all my files.  When in finder, I can control click my drive and it gives me an option to rename it.  Does this work?  I was gonna try it but I didn’t know if it would mess up my drive.
