I am looking at using the above drive, but a few questions came up. WD
tech support is very vague on these issues.
I want to partition the drive to more than 1 partition. I say more than
1 because WD says they support partitioning, but after a few more
questions, that only applies to 1 partition! So, has anyone partitioned
one of these drives to different file systems, like ext4, fat32, a mac
partition (not sure of the name) or the win file system (not sure of its
They also say that they have not tested their mybook series of hd for
linux! So they say they do not support the use of linux on their hd.
Any experience with ubuntu and the mybook series hd?
Another Q. What about the "hardware encryption"? does hardware mean os
agnostic? has anyone used the hardware encryption with, say, ubuntu?
Does anyone know which encryption algorithm they use?
