This review is from: Western Digital Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive


It had a lot of storage?


Died after very little use.
I was only using this a back up drive of a 250GB ssd and a 500GB regular drive. At the time it died it only had 300Gs on it. I had only back up to it 3 times. Then one day I go to look for a file I had deleted and the entire drive was corrupt. Now my comp can't even recognize that it is a drive.

Other Thoughts:

Really looks like I am not the only one having this issue.
