    Easiest backup device ever.

    |
    Posted .

    The 1-1/2 year old Windows-based PC I’ve owned had always given “reminders” that a backup task needed to be set up. Best Buy happened to have a Deal of the Day for this 4TB device for just under $100! Ordered online and it shipped fast. Once hooked up, the PC immediately “saw” it. I then went through with setting up a backup task using the already installed prompts to do so. It was just that easy! The only drawback was the fact that my USB 3.0 jack was on the backside of the PC, in close quarters with my desk installation and the small portable hard drive only comes with an 18” dedicated USB cable, making it necessary to concoct spacers to raise a shelf so that I could set the device on top of the PC cabinet. Your computer layout may be better suited to deal with the VERY short USB cable included with this device. For 4TB of storage, you can’t beat the price!

    FRIGGIN AWESOME DUDES

    You have to run the built-in software before you can save anything to the drive but once that is done you are good to go. ON MAC: you may mysteriously get locked out from the drive (file saving blocked) but you can overcome that by granting the Mac USER account access (RIGHT CLICK ON DRIVE ICON, GET INFO, SHARING AND PERMISSIONS). Just grant the user permission...viola!

    Huge amount of storage in a very small package

    This external hard drive is very small, yet has 4TB of storage. I partitioned the drive into 2 separate partitions, with a clone backup on one partition and my Mac Time Machine backup on the other partition.

    Ran out of space for my iTunes library. Bought this drive, plugged it in, and transferred iTunes to it. Bought two sided tape and now this drive rides on the top of my Mac. Never a problem.

    Great External Storage

    Posted .

    I've been using WD hard drives for about 17 years now. So far bought about 30-40 HDs and never had any issues with Western Digital. Also own a 2T My Passport witch is a little faster than the EasyStore version, but 4T for $99 is unbeatable. Great product.

    WD easystore 4TB 3.0 USB

    |
    Posted .

    Great external drive and plenty of room. Used this for the Xbox One X and S and they work great. Only catch was it wouldn’t recognize the drive if it was plugged in and then turned the Xbox one on “the first time for setup”. The first use turn your Xbox One on after your signed in then plug the WD easystore drive in and the on screen will start automatically to set it up or go into settings-storage and do your setup there. Hope it helps great drive!

    Great amount of external memory for storage

    Love WD products and this one can store more memory puctures for me since I take many pictures. I have 4 of their external hard drives (1T’s & 2T’s), but this one has more room for memory and is still compact. The price was on sale in BestBuy so I had to get it.

    Great drives. I boulght 2 so I could put them in a Windows storage pool. They act like a RAID 1 array so they are mirrored. Exactly what I wanted. 4 TB instant local backup without scheduling tasks and such.

    The 4TB easystore is fine. It hasn’t fried yet. Hopefully it won’t. Hard drives are no solution for the long run. Nor is the cloud. Hopefully they’ll come up with better for us humans soon.
