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.

    A very reliable USB drive for my back-ups

    I purchased the Western Digital USB hard drive in 2008 to use to back up about 300 GB of documents and photography files. My main concern was reliability, and since I had been very pleased with other WD drives (both internal and external) that I've owned, I went with the WD drive. After backing up my files to the portable drive, I took the drive to a relative's house a mile away to keep it safe in case of a (perish the thought) fire or other catastrophe at my house. Once a week or so, I retrieve the drive, back-up any new files, and return the drive to the relative's house for safekeeping.During its more than four years of service, the WD drive has performed flawlessly, writing tens of thousands of files and keeping them secure. It's a remarkable product, considering its size and weight. I've been impressed enough with the drive's performance that I've since bought two more of the WD Passport drives. One of these drives, an identical 500 GB model, has traveled with me on... 5/5 J. Chambers (Georgia, United States) - See all my reviews, January 4, 2013

    Still works after 8 years of use!

    03/23.2017This drive is still hanging in there! I'm impressed! I don't use it as much anymore because it is a little small in size compared to the drives that have come out since this one was sold in stores. But it's still reliable after almost 8 years, and for this I'm bumping it up to five stars!10/28/14This drive has served me well mostly as a music storage HDD. It still works after 5 years of use and regular playback of music even packed to its max with data this drive has not failed. I have used it as a file transfer drive numerous times too, and though it is somewhat slow in comparison to today's hard drive speeds, it has at least been reliable. I have had other drives of the same brand for long periods of time without a single on failing.Pros:Reliable, purchased mid 2009 still works end of 2014Portable, particularly slim for a 500 GB (when I purchased it)Not power hungry, useful if using battery power on laptopCame... 5/5 W.L.

    Still Running everyday after 4 years!!!

    The Western Digital Passport reduced my 388 CD rack to a pocket-sized miracle. Likewise, all the photos, lesson plans, and Power-Point presentations that were cluttering my computer are now on my Passport.Here's the low-down. I was a bit worried that I might have difficultly setting-up this little guy. My fears were alleviated in about 15 seconds. About a month ago, I downgraded from Vista to XP and had NO PROBLEMS with the installation of this product ... whatsoever (seems some people who run Vista have been having some trouble). It could not have been easier. (Thank you Western Digital!)Now, the pre-installed software is REALLLLLY bad (that part is true). Western Digital should rethink this approach since nearly everyone removes it (and it deters some people from even purchasing their products). Minus one-star for being SERIOUSLY annoying!!As mentioned by other reviewers, the product is whisper-quiet. And, while some folks found that they need an... 5/5 REBUILT CUB - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Not good for extended use

    2/5 Vince94 - See all my reviews This review is from: My Passport Essential 320 GB (Electronics) It works, but if you use it for too long (like for editing video), it shuts itself off with no warning. I've called tech support, and they said that this happens because the drive can tell if it's about to overheat.

    DO NOT BUY THIS!!!

    WD Passport drives have always been reliable, excellent drives and I've owned several without any issues, but this new version is very disappointing for 2 key reasons:1) The included software is incredibly tricky to disable if you don't want to use it. You have to go to WD's website and download new hardware and software drivers. I am relative tech-savvy, but it took me 90 minutes to finally get the drive ready to drag and drop files over to it. I almost gave up..I should have.2) New mini USB cable is VERY unstable. The slightest touch, and I mean just barely touching the cable while the drive is connected to your USB port, will disconnect the drive from your computer. The problem lies with the mini USB connection where it connects to the drive itself.I could have lived with reason 1, as I overcame it and my frustrations would have subsided, but reason 2 makes the drive simply unusable. I am returning it to Amazon.WD management - you are... 1/5 JREV (Ambler, PA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    unacceptable

    i bought three of this new model and was planning to put a bunch of family pictures on them and give them to my parents for christmas.unfortunately i was a victim of false advertising : this is not a plug-and-play drive.WD, what are you thinking ? When I plug in my hard drive i certainly don't want a CD volume automatically appearing under My Computer in addition to the actual hard drive volume.Because of this "Virtual CD" nonsense, Windows launches the "New Hardware Assistant" each time I plug in my drive!Here is what WD has to say about "The Virtual CD" :"" A small portion of drive space on your new My Passport or My Book hard drive has been used to create a Virtual CD (VCD). The VCD contains the WD SmartWare installation software, the encryption and password protection application, User Manuals, and other resource files. The VCD looks like an actual CD volume and appears on the screen each time you connect your WD drive to the... 1/5 Stephan Baishanski (Paris, France) - See all my reviews, December 20, 2009

    Hate it, wish I hadn't assumed latest model would be better than previous

    I did research for a while on hard drives, and the previous model received generally positive reviews, so I finally decided to go for it and order one. Then I noticed the 'a newer model of this item is available' link, and clicked on it. Assumption; the newer model would just be an updated model of the previous. Now, I do not lay claim to a really high level of technical understanding of computers and processes, but I know enough to know that when your laptop crashes the first 3 times you try to connect your new external hard drive, there's a problem. At first I assumed that it was maybe a clash between the hard drive and my virus software, because it can be a little temperamental the first time it sees a new program, and when it did eventually install I began a back up. The back up just stopped after about half an hour; the cord fell out of the back of the drive. I plugged it back in, and the light on the drive came back on, but the back up wouldn't resume. I've tried several times... 1/5 A. Andrew (NY, USA) - See all my reviews, October 4, 2009
