It did not get too popular last time at this price a couple months ago. Good price per TB, but not a good drive.

Hoping it'll motivate BestBuy to offer the WD at $129 again to compete.

Why so?

I see nothing wrong with a SMR HDD. Got one last time it was one sale and meets my needs for data storage.

You can use BitLocker or something similar.

Looking for a quick way to backup my drone footage. Can I plug my memory card into the USB port of this (with a card reader) and have it backup all new files to a set folder on the hard drive? Preferably an automatic or one-click way.
