Western Digital Hard Drive Data can be wipe upon upgrade to OS X Mavericks
Western Digital Confirms that some users encountering a data wipe on their hard drives is cause by the application by western digital which is not yet fully compatible on OSX Mavericks (10.9) and needs to be fixed asap. so if you currently installed their app be sure to remove it first before you update.
but base from tomshardware it can still be recovered 🙂 hopefully!
To what I’m sure will be the relief of many, the data isn’t actually gone, it’s just not being accurately reported to the OS. If you’ve upgraded to Mavericks and find yourself missing some critical data, there are a few things you can do.
so just be sure to back up your data as possible and wait for the patch fix before you update to OSX Mavericks if you are a western digital user.
