    I'm using the drive on my MacBook Pro for the Time Machine function. It's nice and fast, nice and big, and the price was right. Since I haven't had any disasters yet, I can't vouch for the retrievability of the data.

    A few, probably insignificant, gripes: (1) the unit can only get its power from the USB connection, and it doesn't work with the USB-powered hub I purchased, so I must plug it directly into the Mac, limiting my USB 3.0 connections to one. (2) The salesman and the documentation cautioned me about knocking or moving it about. I'm careful anyway, but how paranoid should I be? (3) The instructions strongly recommended that the drive be encrypted, so I did that. In a true disaster, will I be able to remember the key? (4) The activity light is awfully bright.

    I use to work for Western Digital, and they have always (well most of the time) good drives. This one is good, but it is kind of slow, during a backup it will bring my machine almost to its knees. It is very quite, though. It is a small foot print and so it is out of the way on the desk.

    External HD for Mac

    Comments about WD My Passport for Mac 1TB Portable Hard Drive:

    Bought this external hard drive for my daughter, so she could back up her MacBook to upgrade to a MacBook Air for school. It worked beautifully with her time machine software. Very easy to use, just plug in and go. Good quality construction, not flimsy like some enclosures. She just got the MacBook Air and uploaded to the new computer very easily. I have bought other WD products for PC and I am very satisfied with them. I currently have an external hard drive that I back up my PC and laptop to. It is a Seagate product and I am not happy with their backup software. I am purchasing a new professional workstation for my home business and I may switch over and get a Western Digital external drive to back up the new computer.

    Backing Up my MacBook Air

    By SteveG

    Comments about WD My Passport for Mac 1TB Portable Hard Drive:

    I recently found myself in the unenviable position of repeatedly getting the message, "Your start-up disk is full. Discard some files now before adding any more." Or something to that effect. What to do? I called Apple to ask about the AirPort Time Capsule, a 2 Tb "solution." They told me it would work perfectly well and I could then discard my iPhoto files. Likewise iTunes. But, WHOA! After I got help formatting my Time Capsule, lo and behold!, A different agent told me that overwriting my backups would eventually erase all or some of my precious photo files! I wound up purchasing another, 1 Tb portable peripheral drive... and it works! I needed help, and now my Time Capsule backs up my Passport, AND I safely discarded those 7,000 pesky photo files. And iTunes music. And the drive seems to be working fine. I am optimistic about this.
