    Trying to help clear up some misinformation.

    There is a fair amount of misinformation regarding the Western Digital (“WD”) MyBook Duo series with respect to encryption and potential data loss. I am sharing my experiences.1) Software encryption: this is enabled by the user by adding password protection via the included WD software. It can be enabled or disabled by the user (assuming you have the correct password).2) Hardware encryption: there is none. However, the RAID is implemented via hardware in the MyBook Duo enclosure. The implications of this design are as follows:a. The proprietary nature of the hardware RAID implementation means that the individual disk drives CANNOT be read outside of the MyBook Duo enclosure. I believe this is not unique to the MyBook Duo as many other RAID enclosures have the same characteristics.b. The RAID implementation is the same from enclosure to enclosure. Therefore, a drive created in one MyBook Duo enclosure CAN be installed into another MyBook Duo... 4/5 James R McMillan - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    5/5 C. Johnson - See all my reviews, November 4, 2016

    For Windows 8+ users: consider setting up in JBOD mode with Storage Spaces

    Very impressed with enclosure and the ease of setting it up. It is quiet with very fast transfer rates (not formally tested, but moved whole movies within seconds). Easy to service and replace drives. I am pleased that it uses the server-grade Red drives as this should improve reliability. Absolutely love the two additional USB drives on back which essentially serves as an additional USB 3.0 hub. All modes (RAID 0, RAID 1, JBOD) tested and work well. FYI, JBOD (just a bunch of disks) offers access to two drives which can be formatted in your choice of filesystems (FAT32, NTFS, ReFS, etc). IMPORTANT NOTE: Out of the box, the drive is RAID 0 mode and requires additional steps to change into a different mode (highly recommended).When looking into a backup or storage solution, one should consider all potential points of failure. Perhaps more importantly, one should have a recovery plan for each of the failure scenarios. I have attempted to list all these possible... 5/5 Jonathan Storey - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    How to save $40 on a 6TB WD Caviar Green hard drive

    I was intrigued when I saw this "6TB external hard drive" selling for $183 when the cheapest "bare" 6TB hard drive that Amazon sells is (as I write this) for $223, the Caviar Green model. How/why could this external drive, with its case, USB 3.0 interface, a power supply (12V @ 1.5A), and a USB 3.0 cable, sell for $40 less than a bare hard drive? Do these additional pieces of the assembly cost negative $40? It makes you think that if someone somewhere was selling whatever 6TB drive is inside this thing as a "bare drive," it should be selling for about $150. Wouldn't you think that?I took a gamble and ordered one on a Saturday night. This afternoon, Tuesday, 3 days after placing the order, it arrived at my doorstep, with an "Amazon Prime" sticker on it. I was pleasantly surprised, since I'm not an Amazon Prime customer. But hey, I'll take it.The first thing I did was to connect the drive to my Mac via one of my USB 2.0 cables... 5/5 RetiredEE (Bay Area, CA USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

This review is from: WD 6TB My Book Desktop External Hard Drive - USB 3.0 - WDBFJK0060HBK-NESN (Personal Computers) Great drive, used for as few months both at home and while camping. No problems found and the drive defaults to sleep in 30 minutes after going idle. After it sleeps there a delay when attempting to access the drive.
