As long as you format it first from a PC to the correct format then I can't think of a reason why not.

Can you def reformat them for use with PC? If so why do they sell a separate "for Mac" range?

Yes you can.

They are simply formatted for Mac for plug in and play out of the box.

Or just don't have everything installed at once? I have a 2tb and that's more than enough for the 20 or so games I ocassionally play and about 50 or so extras that I intend to play at some point.

4TB - cannot resist............ thanks reddit.

Am I being stupid because I can't find the buy button lol?

Clear your browser cache and try again as the add to cart button can sometimes be missing.

OOS

Dammit, just what I needed.

Managed to get one. Thanks. Not the best deal on the recertifieds, but not bad at all.

Got to final order page and it said OOS, I kept trying and it let it through after 3 or 4 attempts.

Hope the conversion to NTFS is ok?

Cheers Reddit.

NTFS is a software file system format. Makes no odds what the storage is formatted as.

I have been after a cheap WD 4TB hard dive to use as a Time Machine on my iMac so was very pleased to get one of third ones.
Thanks for the heads up OP

Why is this expired? Just bought one. Cheers OP.

I don't like to reinstall and as I've found the kids have been playing stuff I've never dreamt of myself. I've got 291 games across 6tb of storage. Now I can add an extra 1tb and give the kids the 2tb spare drive when then take the xb1 off my hands - the X will soak that up with 4k addons

Out of interest, what Windows file transfer speeds are you achieving (large files)?, because we bought two and getting only 34MB/s sustained Write throughput. Changed policy to enable Write caching, but no real improvement

Apologies for multiple edits - I blame iPhone

After a couple of days of transferring things I have found it variable.

Sometimes as low as 28MB/s up to around 80 for large files.

What's the quality and reliability of these recertified drives like? Looking for one just to store data as a one off and not have it in constant use.
