You do not need to do the preformatting as originally described by many. You also should not pay more for the "ps4 version" of this drive. My experience with this was surprisingly smooth and easier than expected. Turned on my ps4, plugged in the hdd, and 2 notifications popped up
-Discover:You can use your external drive as storage
-Unsupported drive format.
If you go onto the discover notification it gave me the option to format it and it was faster than any formatting windows has ever done on a drive especially one of this capacity.
Long story short, ps4 will preformat this for you once you plug it in and confirm it to do so. Once formatting is done it will give you the works about how installing on external storage works and for me it set it as the new default.
Things to keep in mind:
-Only game data is stored on the ext drive.
-Saves, screenshots, videos etc are still on local storage
-Check storage settings to switch between which should be default installation drive.
I don't particularly want to send WD the data on this drive, so I'm screwed. Buyer beware, Avoid this product.
Alternatives to these disks: dvd, if you burn a dvd it will be way more reliable than a hard drive, burn many if you need 4tb. Another alternative is 2 or 3 of these disks with copies of your data, if one dies you can buy another and transfer the data and always have 2 or 3 copies.
4tb of your most preciated pictures and videos are worth more than 100bucks, so use one of this options or pay for cloud.
You can check and will find that all these drives have the same score in the reviews and the people complain about the same, people just keep thinking these drives are a safe storage, they couldn't be more wrong.
Having this said, the disks are working great, I'm leaving some pictures.
vote helpful it it was for you
HERE'S THE DRILL. I contacted WD for a replacement, only to find out that I would have to find and purchase special packaging to return it. Then after spending time and money boxing it up for return, I have to find a shipping company, deliver it there, pay shipping costs, all of this AT MY EXPENSE, and all for a product that should have worked anyways. Not to mention that I will have to send them a hard drive that contains backups of all of my personal information (emails, tax documents, photos, etc.) because I can't access the drive to wipe this sensitive information. All of this seems like a lot of trouble and concern for trusting customers of a product that was poorly manufactured to begin with. Clearly WD has a lot to learn about quality customer service.
NEVER AGAIN! I have had similar issues with WD products in the past (this has happened TWICE before!), and I supposed that I was too trusting of a company that repeatedly manufactures inferior products, then puts their customers through costly hoops to return them. Had I spent a little time researching other reviews of WD products, I would have realized that I am not alone. Many similar issues are reported through these reviews, and any potential customers would be wise to pay attention.
As I stated at the beginning.....BEWARE!
