    Comments about Western Digital Western Digital My Book World Edition II 2TB External Hard Drive:

    Did not expect the supporting software (which is necessary to maintain connectivity to the drive) to be so heavy handed. Since this is for personal use, I have decided to have the software and the drive powered down except when I need it.
