    OK, a bit off topic but thought I would put this out there.

     

    I picked up my EX470 for $539.99 CDN, from futureshop. Also just saw the boxing week specials coming out in Canada and noticed the WD mybook external storage at 1TB. model WDH1U10000N. Has anyone cracked this open, I wanted to know which drive was in there, price is $199.99 CDN. I was thinking of grabbing two, breaking them open an throwing them in my MSS.

     

    Anyone can help, much appreciated.

  • Carl,

    A few people have had problems with some of these external drives.The common or garden plain drives with a USB adapter are fine, but some of the propriety models have power saving modes etc which, if not disabled, can confuse WHS. It thinks the drives have been removed/failed, when in fact, they're asleep.

  • Colin,

     

    I was thinking of removing the drive if it was a 1TB drive and installing it directly into the MSS, @ $200 for boxing day sales the price would be great for a single TB drive.

     

    Do you hapen to know if this was a single or 2 x 500GB

     

    Cheers All
