Windows 7: HWiNINFO - Caution - High Priority Unload Events

HWiNINFO - Caution - High Priority Unload Events

When I run HWiNINFO on a recently purchased (<300 Power On Hours) 2TB WD Black drive it throws a "caution" (Yellow Triangle/Black !) and reports 2 High Priority Unload Events.

I've found it difficult to interpret the significance of this warning. I'd appreciate comments from more informed forum members.

Thank you, Snick

The WD information helps me understand that this is a power-saving feature of recent WD drives.

I propose we consider my inquiry "solved."
