Yes they can relatively easily. If you are careful you can avoid damaging the plastic casing, meaning you can even put it back if need to claim the warranty.

Video of MyBook disassembly, it is pretty much the same.

RRP £94.92? Really?.

If so, not a bargain. But I suspect its worth at least £150 at RRP.

that's what is stated on Amazon
Not voted,but i would spend £10 more and get a portable.
This is the bottom of range Elements version, okay for backup but I wouldn't trust it for regular use. However, the slightly more expensive My Book by WD is an excellent product which I'd trust over anything by Seagate or Toshiba etc.

Aren't the actual drives the same? I don't know about these recent versions but the difference when I last looked appeared to be nothing but hardware encryption on the My Books. Good luck getting your data off if you damage the enclosure!

Depends on your needs. Portable drives are slower.

Indeed my portable is plenty fast enough to copy to and wakes up from sleep quick.

easier to to move around the house to use on the other laptop and TV.
Thanks, just saw it and it was in my cart
If folks want it for the drive alone Amazon have the blue 4tb wd drive for £95 odd pounds

One crack on the plastic and your warranty is gone.

My server is full of shucked drives, I believe I broke a clip on the first one I attempted as I wasnt patient enough. I took the next 7 slowly though and none broke, so if you're careful you'll be fine. I haven't had to claim the warranty on any of them in almost two years either.

However I'd still pay £5 for a WD Blue straight out without the hassle, this isn't worth the effort as its not a super deal.

This or the seagate backup plus hub? Just to be used as an external backup drive.

Ah, yes you might be right. I read somewhere the drives inside were lesser quality components but can't remember where. The My Books do have the optionof hardware encryption but by default the encryption is turned off so would work like any other when pulled out of a duff enclosure.
excellent!! cheers!!

Probably better not using their encryption and just bitlockering it
