    I use this hard drive for basic storage. Works great for what I need. Getting windows 10 to recognize that the hard drive is there requires a little setup but nothing a google search can't fix. Not the hard drives fault. Windows fault.

    Easy to install. Good price. Will NOT work on older mother boards (pre-2009 or so) as drive 0 at full capacity and you will not be able to partition it into smaller drivers in Windows 10. Can be used as a drive other than boot to get full capacity.

    When building computers, I only trust Western Digital or Seagate and this was a good sale price. Needed to upgrade from 2TB to 4TB. Mounting was easy as case had slot for the extra drive space for temporary setup for the transfer. The worst aspect was the software as there are no instructions or video and some of the "next" was confusing because you didn.t know what it was going to do. Always had a fear that the partition/format wound occur on the wrong drive and erase my 2TB drive being updated That would have been a disaster. My setup is and SSD that holds programs, and the 2TB harddrive that holds data - music, video,, photo, documents. First mistake I made was choosing "custom" setup rather than automatic. Went through everything but only partitioned and setup equal to the original drive, 2TB leaving the excess unformated and inaccessable. Started over using automatic settings, holding breath that didn't erase/format the 2TB drive. The other unspoken instruction was the need to go back agterwards and re-name the drive. The original 2TB was d: drive and the new 4TB had to be the next unassigned, or G: in this case. When complete and removing the D: drive, Windows could not recognize the files now located on G: drive. When D: was fully removed, launched the software and changed G: to D:.
