Few secrets about the drive
9 February 2019
2.71 TB available for data storage. I guess that is the actual capacity. Rounded up to 3TB cos it sounds nice?
Around 300GB can't be for partition info. Cheating the customers I reckon.
I was told if it is GPT partitioned the capacity would be more, but I learned the drive was already GPT partitioned.
I tried calling the toll free numbers for assistance. There was no answer on the first number and the second number, it seems, is invalid!
A word of caution: If you are doing intense copying, make sure the drive is well ventilated or it gets extremely hot. In my case, my drive accidentally got covered with a pillow and after about 20 mins of copying the PC gave a message: no drive found. Upon checking I found the drive had shut down due, perhaps due to overheating. I reconnected after few minutes and it worked fine.
I would not blame the drive, although there could have been a warning in the so called "user manual". Logically, I did not expect heating issue as the cover is of non heat conducting plastic and also no vents of any kind. Also, after a few seconds of copying, the speed drops dramatically.
Also, this drive is NOT recognized by the USB port of my LED TV. The purpose of my purchase was defeated.
