Bought a 6tb external drive new in the box. Never worked even for a second as the drive could not be read by any computer. Called and spoke to a tect from WD and he had me do a lot of BS to the drive. Sent the drive back with their RMA # and didn't hear from therm for...Read more
And on top of that, they don't care and there is no way to recover except to spend more money with another corrupt company that they have advised me to use to get back my data. I am livid. Isn't there a class action suit or something? I have My Passports for Mac that I...Read more
I would start my post with acknowledging that WD executives on support are PATHETIC!! They tried to debug the problem for more than 15 hours(daily 3-4 hrs) after giving the statement "checking with resources" every 2 minutes and by chance one of the executive was able...Read more
Western Digital Backup Software Review
Their horrible Smartware software led me to believe I had a safe file backup. No obvious warning that some file types were excluded. I lost years of source code when my drive crashed and I found it was not backed up. A nightmare! A less than zero rating. Sell the hardware and don't pretend you know anything about software!!!
Western Digital - Review about Faulty Hard Drives from Chicago, Illinois

I didn't like
- Backup sofware
- Customer service
A rarely used Passport external drive was used to (re)save data from my Mac computer. It failed and I cannot mount the device as it is not recognized by my computer. Looked online for multiple solutions, none of which worked and contacted Western Digital support. They...Read more
Very Dishonest I have to totally agree with the reviewer "Awful Warranty" 1 of 2 my brand new 10TB Helium was DOA it wouldn't even power on, when I called RMA they said that they can sent me replacement (recertified) I was like what! are you kidding me I paid almost...Read more
Just awful warranty service, whether you're buying hard drive with 3 or 5 year warranty it will make no difference. If you happen to RMA you drive say DOA or week old they will be resending you recertify drive until your warranty term runs out they don't really care,...Read more
