I bought this drive a couple of weeks ago. The issue I have is that it randomly disappears in Windows. The only way to rectify is a reboot. I have the Intel SSD that I bought at the same time as my boot drive & the WD for archiving. I have tried it with a different cable & on a different sata port but still get the same issue. I contacted WD support & asked for a firmware update or similar & they weren't too much help. Told me if I had issues just to RMA it. Have always rated WD drives but not too sure now.
Have googled & read somewhere about the head parking issues or similar?
BTW title should say 2TB WD20EARS
