I buy primarily WD drives - in fact, a new 3TB FW drive a couple weeks ago.
Personally, wouldn't touch any WD backup or drive management software with a 10' pole.
First thing I do with a new drive is delete their software bundle.
There have been misc issues off and on with their software for as far back as I can remember using their drives - 15 yrs+.
I'm too senile to give you any specifics.
WD software is in the news right now causing data loss in Mavericks.
WD is also currently recommending everyone using Mavericks remove the WD drive management software from your computer.
I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
