Hard Drive, A Family's Fight Against Three Countries

Creator: Mary Todd | True Crime - 2014-08-01

This story, which is told from the unique perspective of Shane’s mother, Mary, recounts the family’s painful, arduous, and unwavering endeavor to reveal the truth about what happened to Shane Todd in Singapore.

Publisher: Morgan James Publishing

About this book
On June 24, 2012, Dr. Shane Truman Todd, a young American engineer, was found hanging in his Singapore apartment, just a week before his scheduled return to the United States. Although Shane had repeatedly expressed apprehension about his work with a Chinese company and fear his life was being threatened, authorities immediately ruled his death a suicide. His family initially didn’t know what to believe. However, upon arriving in Singapore, they realized the evidence suggested not suicide, but murder. Shane’s family later discovered that what they thought was a computer speaker was actually an external hard drive with thousands of files from Shane’s computer. The information in those files transformed this story from a tragic suicide to an international saga of mystery, deceit, and cover-up, involving three countries. “Hard Drive: A Families Fight against Three Countries” is the captivating story of Shane’s mysterious death and his family’s grueling battle to reveal the truth against powerful forces that have sought to conceal, destroy, or discredit evidence indicating homicide. This story, which is told from the unique perspective of Shane’s mother, Mary, recounts the family’s painful, arduous, and unwavering endeavor to reveal the truth about what happened to Shane Todd in Singapore.

    Perfect for use with Dish Network DVR 722 receiver

    This Western Digital My Book Essential 1TB drive deserves every one of those 5 stars. I have used this drive for 2 purposes: One for the usual purpose of backing up information from a computer and also as an external hard drive extension for the Dish Network DVR 722 receiver. With both of these uses, it worked flawlessly.I am going to focus on how it works with the Dish Network DVR because more and more people are buying external hard drives for this purpose and not many (if any) had reviewed this particular size when I purchased mine a month ago so I was unsure of how it would work. Dish Network states that the maximum external drive size that will work with their receivers is 750GB. That is typically true, except in the case of this Western Digital My Book. The reason for that is simply because most 1TB drives actually have 2 drives within one case. The MyBook only pulls from one drive inside of its case that does hold 1TB.

    An excellent device for creating backups. WDH1U10000N

    I have been using two of these devices at work to perform weekly backups on about fifteen Linux (Intel) computers for nearly four months. I first had to reformat them to a ext3 Linux file system. After that, literally, plug and play for our Red Hat boxes. I cannot speak for the speed, with most backups, who cares how fast, if they are completed without errors and the backup device is reliable. What impressed me was / is the durability of these things. I have connected and disconnected this drive many times (500+?) to computers that were powered up with no problems. The connectors seem rugged, often I need (in a hurry) to carry the drive around with the power adapter dangling (not recommended). The backups we do, verify the checksum after a backup and so far have shown zero (0) errors. I ordered one of these today so that I could use it at my home to back up my two Win-XP machines and my one XP/Linux notebook computer. I gave the 'Software' rating five stars only because no software is... 5/5 Ken M (Oxnard, CA United States) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    One of the better ones around...

    Design & PortabilityI had 2 external HD's, which were 250GB and 150GB. It was in two different enclosures, so where ever I went, it was a real hassle carrying two HD's. MyBook is pretty compact with 1TB platter inside, helps slimming the width. Its piano black enclosure is really slick in HD design. I would give this HD the best design in its category. Very simplistic, no buttons, small slit of blue LED in front.Out of the boxEverything was packed, there were no mounting the HD inside the enclosure needed, unlike my older HD's. I just had to plug and play, it was that easy!PerformanceI have used this for over a month and its performance is average. The specs is on the HD is pretty fast with 7200 rpm and 16MB buffer speed.

    Fits right in: Takes no more space than a paperback book. Collect two or more and they nest neatly together like volumes on a shelf.
    Our environmentally-friendly drive is designed to save power by going into standby mode after 10 minutes of inactivity.
    Installation is a snap because you don't really install this drive, you just plug it in and it's ready to use.

    BEWARE: Unstable USB plug! Yes, it IS that sensitive to movement.

    I can't add much to the review made by INGE STUBDAL except to resoundingly second the hundreds of agreements made by other buyers to that review AND to say that unlike INGE, something similar has happened before with 3+ other WD products--all WD Elements. Though I was careful with them, not plugging/unplugging, they sat on a desk, etc., I blamed it being that particular drive & maybe I wasn't as careful as I thought--after reading an article on WD site while troubleshooting ("How to eliminate potential problems on USB Powered Drives")Despite my reservations, at the time My Book (&WD) had SO many positive reviews, I gave in & bought one when it was on sale. With extra babying & NEVER unplugging cords from the drive, it LASTED 3 YRS. Now it's VERY temperamental as if there's a short at the drive connection, just from getting moved around on the desk for dusting and that type thing.Thankfully, I learned from past mistakes & also had been backing up data to... 1/5 LKD (South) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    How to set up your WD My Book Essential 3TB 3.0 USB drive

    I have six of these drives. I have had no serious problems to date, the oldest I've owned for about four months now. I will return to edit this review should a drive fail in the future.UPDATE: I wrote the above in October 2011. Writing now in October 2012, I now have eight of these drives. No problems to date.SECOND UPDATE: Writing now in November 2013. I have nine of these drives at this point. No problems to date.THIRD UPDATE: Writing now in October 2014. Same nine drives. Still no problems to report.Here is my recommendation for how to set up the drive, out of the box. I've done this a bunch of times now, so I'm getting routine at it, and thought I'd write it out for others.Some caveats, for what it might be worth:--I am running Windows 7 64-bit.--I use both 3.0 and 2.0 connectivity, depending on the computer I hook these up to.--I have no use for the included backup software, so I can't speak to that.

    I love them, that's why I'm buying another today

    5/5 D (Colorado, US) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: WD My Book 1TB External Hard Drive Storage USB 3.0 File Backup and Storage (Personal Computers) I've purchased about 8 of these (1 tb, 2 tb and 4 tb) and all work perfectly and quickly except for one. About 7 years ago I was getting some messed up files (pictures, out of tens of thousands) on a 1tb I had used for 5 years maybe, and then slowly, week by week, month by month, more and more were getting messed up until I finally had to move over as many as I could save to another drive. (That was a PAIN!) But the other 7 of this My Book have all worked perfectly and with no problems with cords or anything else. I love them, that's why I'm buying another today, my son's is full, and he backs up his laptop every few weeks. I like this huge size more than the small ones, as they can't be brought along in a backpack to classes with ease, so they stay in the room and don't get lost or fall out! Mine just sits on the side of my desk and never moves, and I use it every day. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 19, 2017
