Plug and play....it is that easy! We are using it to store years of digital pictures that have been stored on 100's of discs. Now they are organized and load immediately for instant viewing. Wish I had done it years ago.

Twice The Storage Protection!

By Howdyp

from Claymont, DE

Verified Buyer

Comments about Western Digital® Hard Drives; My Book® , 4TB:

This 4TB external drive holds twice as much information as the one I was considering and only cost about $30 more. Now, I use it to hold back up images of several of my family computers. I intend to move it around and update them all about once a month. Of course, it stays on my computer and automatically keeps my information updated.

It's a good buy and I would recommend it to anyone rather than using an entire 40-50 DVDs to back up your system. It saves both money and time. I haven't had it long enough to see if any problems develop over time so I only rated it four stars. In a few months could make all five if it is still trouble free.

Comments about Western Digital® Hard Drives; My Book® , 4TB:

Since I play a lot with computers and I am converting vinyl LP's to digital for cd's I do not want to take up space on my local hard drive with all the storage I find this is a good and economical device to use for that. it is also large enough to do my backups on. this is my second My Book that one I use for backups on my laptop it has come in very handy several times.
the 4TB is small enough to take along for any need you may have.
the software is loaded right on the unit so no cd to carry around to load to get it working I would recommend this product

Software Needs Attention

By Repeat WD Customer

from Worcester, MA

Verified Buyer

Comments about Western Digital® Hard Drives; My Book® , 4TB:

This was the third WD external backup unit that I have purchased. The last one failed because it required reformatting from time to time, which wiped out the memory. Undaunted, I purchased a new unit with great storage capacity. The installation was uneventful but the software updates have been a nightmare. When I attempted to install the -17 update on my laptop, it required a restart after installation. However, the restart went into some sort of loop each time and the update never took.
Then I tried to install the update on the desktop. This installation did not invoke the loop like on the laptop, but caused the program to fail to open. I could backup on the unit using the Microsoft Backup and Restore function, but I could not complete a backup using the WD program itself. Exhausting my moderate computer acumen, I eventually discovered that the new WD unit installed its software without deleting the software from the prio WD unit. Once I removed the obsolete software, the new WD unit functioned properly. I may or may not install any future updates, depending on how patient I think I can be .........
