Western Digital Passports

A place where we can post about what we are seeing failing. Are you seeing a lot of a particular model of drive failing? This is where you would post about it and see if others are seeing the same thing too.

Western Digital Passports

Post by lcoughey » Thu Jan 15, 2015 3:45 pm

We are seeing a surge in Western Digital Passport hard drives of all capacities coming in for recovery. In most cases, the heads have crashed down onto the platter surfaces, suggesting that they were bumped or dropped while powered on.

We've had quite a few of those come in here as well. Though lately most haven't needed head replacement. They just had bad sectors and/or were slow responding. I've actually grown to like these drives I used to hate so passionately.
