hard drive horror 

today i learned western digital pass port and book drives aren't just SATA drives in an enclosure, they use a proprietary connector to the drive which also does encryption whether you like it or not. if the controller dies, you lose your data too! yay!

@null0x0 @jookia in my experience WD is superior. All WD drives i've had have outlived anything else i've had and error free.

@mgrondin @jookia I agree! I have not used newer external drives from WD my old one uses Standard connector!

@jookia well that sounds wrong...
