Rated 4 out of 5 by from Small Capacity! Now have a few of these, before the 4Tb version came out and now an 8TB one. Fast R/W, yes. But for storage of Photographs and Video,will run out of capacity pretty quickly. I now get the larger versions for backups.

Will it work OK with Windows 10 ? Also can you protect the data transferred to  the  drive with a password and is it encrypted?

Asked by: Big A
It will work fine with Windows 10, the drive itself does not have any hardware encryption per se, but you can use software encryption to protect your data.
