    Specs:
    27" iMac i7,El Capitan, iPhone5, iPad4, Apple tv3, iPod5
    WD My Passport for Mac
    Have just purchased the 2TB model from the online Mac Store UK.

    This portable external drive comes with extra software e.g. WS+Turbo drivers - and their own WD Drive Utilities are these necessary for Mac OS X ML 10.8.4, surely Mac OS Disk Utility is all that is required?

    Cheers

    Specs:
    mid 2010 Mac Mini OS 10.11.6 (ElCap), 2.66 GHz C2D, 8GB RAM, 30 in. Cinema Display
    I didn't like the extra software when I initially set up my WD 3T ext hdd. I reformated the whole drive and I have used the Mac's features only.
    No regrets and everything is running fine.

    Thanks very much. I did not install the extra software either and after reading your reply I shall not.

    Cheers for the reply.
