    WD my book studio edition II
    Hello everyone, i just bought myself the 1Tb edition of this external hard disk and i just wanted to ask if anyone knows if i can replace the drives with other ones that are faster such as a raptor. Apparently on the WD website, they specify that you can only insert a WD Caviar GP into the disk compartment. Will i be able to upgrade to 2x2 Tb green hard disks to get a total of 4 Tb in the future? and if anyone knows what other drives are supported i would be grateful. Thanks guys!

    Hard to say with any degree of certainty since they've got a RAID controller built in. It's possible that swapping drives would require access to the RAID settings, which I'm not sure how you'd get to.

    Physically, it should be possible to swap the drives, but you will certainly void your warranty in doing so.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
