thanks. Wish I could have found a diff reasonable prices extenal here. I saw to delete the WD volume in disk management (or such), then format it.
Will make a few copies of the recovery.
This is good to know..
"Just note: these HDDs are ok but they can "go to sleep" during a recovery boot sequence"If the drive isn't recognized and no data transfer is in place I find physically disconnect then reconnect the My Book will wake it up"
mjf, were you able to remove everything installed by the wd drive when you first plugging it in? Or does it?
