Who's to say it isn't a new drive in the caddy?
I am looking to remove the drive as it should be a WD red. Can run diagnostics on it and check the manufacturing date etc once it is out.

Recertified means refurbished more or less. Professionally refurbished

I have many. the drive inside is a red but doesn't have the fancy red labels on it.

Nice find, i keep scanning their site for cheap drives, glad you found this, have added one to my collection

No drive can be trusted, all can fail anytime. That's why a sensible person has backups. I got 24tb of recertified drives. thats 12tb usable and 12tb backups. Also have a 2tb recertified portable for xbox 360 and xbox one but with no backups because I can just redownloaded that data if fail. been working great for 3 years now

Very good price.
Just wish they did recertified Red drives on their own. :-)

Price certainly hasn't come down on those unfortunately, could do with another couple of 4TB's.

Anybody know what type of drive they put in the My Book's?

the grey mybook clouds use red drives. buy one and strip out the drive.

Thanks, was about to buy a 4TB new for more than this. Worth a punt

just wondering as i have no idea. Can you add an external drive to this via usb?

Think I just grabbed the last 6TB. Sorry!

Got one been considering a mormal 5tb

Out of Stock

Thanks OP. Managed to get in two different orders before they ran out of stock.

Ahh...go for the 4Gb or wait for the 6Gb to come back in stock!

Only one avaliable is the 4tb version, which has 2 x 2tb drives in it for £129.99, however the mybook single drive 4tb version which is instock for £79.99 would be a much better option

Single My Book doesn't have a red in though I believe?

Before you order, take a look at their returns policy.

They're WD Green. I have a refurb one of these no problems with it 2 years on. Not my main storage but useful. Software as always awful though.

Cheaped out in the end then, they used to be red's in the network storage, oh well. Mines destined for a rack server and will not be parking so it must be a red.

Yes you can

Thanks op. 6TB sold out, but I only wanted 4TB which is still a good price per TB with the discount code.
Looking to replace my micro server with something less power hungry and quieter.
Single drive NASes are not very popular. But in my experience write redundancy is pointless in home applications. Whereas regular backup is paramount and sufficient to keep all your data safe.

Managed to grab a 4tb. Thanks OP

Question, do I need to have a static IP address for connecting cloud devices ? If no then how do I connect a mobile drive to the my cloud storage?

Mycloud uses it's own ddns service and auto updates so it can always keep in contact with the NAS, something like that anyway but I am sure someone will be along to correct me.

Out of interest how have you got that setup? Are you using a RAID mirror or are you doing a manual mirroring process periodically? If you don't mind any info about your setup would be great as I'm hoping to make something similar

Your confusing the terms. RAID mirror is not a backup. Any form of write redundancy is not considered a backup. Backup is a snapshot copy of the data.
I used to have a mirror setup in my home server. But if any data corruption occurs and the source of that corruption is not a drive problem, then both copies of the data will be corrupt. Only a backup will save your data then.
When this happened to me, I removed the mirror drive and set up a daily incremental backup of all my data to a different drive in the same server. And then I have a weekly task scheduled backing up all my critical data to an external hard drive.

Thank you

>> Who's to say that IT IS NEW?

Reason and commercial sense, my good fellow.

A) Cost in work hours and equipment to remove, inspect, open, repair, re-inspect, replace drive. Whilst maintaining a full supply of any potential parts (and how exactly *do* you "repair" a hard drive anyway? Other than mainboard...)
B) Cost to remove, replace with new drive. Bearing in mind you're the manufacturer so by deffinition aren't short of spare drives, costing you nothing more than manufacturing value.

Funnily enough, B would tend to win out in quite a few cases....

Haha. I think their approach is different here. And from a cost efficiency perspective makes most sense.

I hope these recertified products are mostly customer statutory returns. Instead of testing them, they just sell them again with shorter warranty. The cost and effort of testing is shifted onto the customer. If they make the effort and discover any faults, WD just ship a another recertified product out or refund the customer. I doubt WD ever bother doing any diagnostics. As you say, you can't exactly repair a faulty hard drive. Not cheaply.

For the savings I'm getting I'm happy with the hassle. If the SMART info and the warranty on the drive inside does not indicate it's two years old, I'll keep it.

I should've listened to the naysayers! Mine refuses to get an IP address from my router (and being a network admin for years I know my way around networking etc). Tried the 4-second and 40-second reset, different routers, different cables with no joy. Looks like it's going back :-(
