Just bought one WD Mybook pro. Because a lot of software including WD diagnostics software and EMC backup software are in the drive, I am wondering if these software would be lost from the drive after partitioning and formating the drive. Any user of WD Mybook can give help? Thanks.


Yes if you partitioin and format it you will lose that software. If you use partitionmagic or something though you should be able to partition off the software as is without losing it. However - if you format the partition with the software you will lose it.
