Hi [MENTION=295409]skeletor13th[/MENTION],

First of all, as standard procedure, it would be best if you were to blur out your serial number

Try to test the drive with SMART test.
As a rule, model numbers extracted by these testing programs should match the labels on the drives themselves. You can also use DLG for the testing of the drive, which would give a better reading of the WD HDD.

Hope it helps. Keep me posted.

so, for the future references i want to say that i have already bought the said HDD and i am happy with the purchase. i checked the drive with WD data lifeguard diagnostic and crystal disk info and got good results. read/write speed is also good. if anyone need some specific info then you can ask in this thread.

PS: model no of the HDD was the same as described in the product page.

Anyone can confirm - Is this product Encrypted ? I like to know if the enclosure gone so the Data ?

Also any plan to introduce similar or more size in WD Elements (2.5 inch) segment which is currently 2TB available...

Hi [MENTION=11717]dissel[/MENTION],

Thanks for your interest in WD drives, the WD My Passport Ultra comes with hardware based data encryption.The idea of having hardware encryption is to make your data more secure and less susceptible to breaches. Having said that though, the ones in My Passport are enabled via the WD Security app that you install.

For WD Elements, I will try to get an update if possible from our marketing and R&D team regarding this request but until now I don't have any update on it.
