Rated 4 out of5 byRFNAPLES fromGreat Features!I bought this October 29 and I am so glad I did. Works with Microsoft Surface Pro 3 and Windows 8.1 Pro with Media Center. WD Security and Tools installed and updated with ease. WD SmartWare however would not open. A quick call to WD customer support and download/install latest version from their website got it working. This is my third WD external, this one I may use.

Rated 1 out of5 byDisappointedDan fromDO NOT BUY -- BACKUP SOFTWARE DOES NOT WORKBought the 1TB version, and looked to the included software as a backup solution. What a mistake. Simply does not work with Windows 7. Western Digital support sent very nice emails...reinstall, etc--typical response, but nothing worked. Simply put, the software bundled with this backup drive doesn't back up. NOT RECOMMENDED. And of course WD would not accept returns. Wish I could give zero stars.
