Question about Western Digital Passport WDXML800UE (WDXML800UETE) 80 GB Hard Drive

1 Answer

My WD passport is requiring that I select a password and/or certificate to encrypt every file that I put on it. It didn't do this before, I was able to copy and paste docs right into it, but now it's requiring this encryption. It says I can set a default password or certificates in the client console, but I can't find that option.

It may be something your antivirus is doing to keep from transferring a virus from the Passport to the Computer or vice versa.

Always be certain to run your antivirus on all periferal storage devices.

I want to renew my loss passport? what will I do?


Things You'll Need
  1. Old passport in original with self-attested photocopy of its first four and last four pages, including ECR/ECNR page.
  2. If the old passport was issued when you were a minor or did not have the ECNR stamp - provide attested copy of matriculation or degree certificate
  3. Proof of address if different than the one on the old passport. Acceptable documents include phone, gas, electricity bill, ration card, spouse or parent's passport copy
  4. Recent passport size photographs (Three) in colour showing frontal view of full face are required.
Steps 1 Re-issue vs. Renew
A new passport is re-issued (not renewed) when a current passport (validity of 10 years or more) is 1 year from expiration or it is less than 3 years after it has expired. A passport issued with a validity of 1-5 years under certain emergency conditions can be renewed at no additional cost. This article covers the re-issuance of a Passport that was issued with 10 years or more of validity.
2 The Application Form
The Application Form for re-issuing a Passport is the same as the one required for a new Passport. You can get the Application Form from any Passport Service Center/Office or any Post Office. You can also use the link below.
3 Fees Required
The application fee for reissue of a passport is the same as a new application. Passport for Adult (36 page) - Rs. 1000, Passport for Adult (60 pages) - Rs. 1500 and Passport for a Minor - Rs. 600. It is better to take extra cash with you when submitting the application as there are additional fees for Police Clearance Certificate/ECNR Reqd, etc.
4 Where to Apply
Completed Passport Application Forms with Supporting documents can be submitted at Passport Offices, District Passport Cells/Collector's Office/DSP's Office or at Speed Post Centers. Please be sure to note down the File Reference Number.
5 How to check status of Application
You can check the status of your application online by providing the file reference number at the Consular and Passport Division Website
Tips
  • If you have a busy lifestyle and do not wish to waste your time, use a reputed Travel Agent who can get you a passport quickly for a small fee. The travel agent will also be able to verify that your documentation is accurate and sufficient.
  • If you have any other questions or situations please use the link below for the official website of the Indian Passport Division.
Caution In case a person has resided at more than 1 place in the past 1 year, then a separate Person Particulars form (part of the Passport Application) needs to be filled out for each address that he has resided at, for the past 1 year.

New WD Passport Essential drive will not format or allow reinstall of software - shows zero space -


Is this drive fresh out of the box new or had you already set it up once?

If it's new, it's a dud return it for a replacement. If you've already set it up once and opted to encrypt it with a password, it's locked and waiting for you to install the encryption software and enter your password before it will unlock. Plugging it back into the machine you used to set it up and entering your password will open it and you can use the passport utilities to remove the encryption which will then allow you to reformat the drive.

Hope this helps FixYa,

Chris

How to get a passport?


  • 1 Fill out the Application for Passport, Form DS-11. You can download this form online and bring it with you when you apply for your passport.
  • 2 Get two passport photos taken. The identical photos must be 2 inches by 2 inches. The pictures must offer a full, frontal view of your face, from the top of your head through your shoulders. The photo must be taken with a plain white background. Many post offices, photo studios and mail box locations take passport photos for a nominal fee.
  • 3 Bring one of the following to the Passport Acceptance Facility to prove citizenship: previous U.S. passport, certified birth certificate, naturalization certificate or a certificate of citizenship.
  • 4 Bring proof of identity. A current driver's license, government or military ID are the most common forms of identification. You can also bring a previous U.S. passport or naturalization certificate.
  • 5 Locate the Passport Acceptance Facility nearest you. Use the U.S. Department of State Web site to find the nearest facility. You simply input your zip code and the Web site will generate a list of acceptance facilities in your area.
  • 6 You must pay both a passport application fee and an execution fee to get your passport. You will turn in these fees when you file your application. It takes about six weeks after filing to receive your U.S. passport. If you are traveling soon, you can pay an additional fee for Expedited Service and get your passport within two weeks.

    My passport "removes" my files!


    WARNING: Do not think that theyourWD Passport, using the WD Sync software, is a backup drive; it is NOT !

    As per the documentation with this device:
    "synchronization software is intended to synchronize the data from a
    computer to the drive (WD Passport) and SHOULD NOT be used as backup
    software. To use this software properly, we advise that you do not wipe or
    erase the data from the internal hard drive (computer) and resynchronize, as
    this will cause the data that WD Sync stored to the Passport to be deleted."

    This is why you are hearing so many people saying that they are deleting the
    WD Sync software, reformatting, and using the WC Passport as a true backup
    drive where you can actually see the files that you are backing up, rather
    than a bunch of unrecognizable sync files that likely don't have all the files that you thought you "backed up".

    Wd passport file customizing


    If you open the Computer directory and identify the drive letter for the WD Passport drive, right-click on the drive folder and select properties. The properties tool for the drive will open showing several tabs. Select the Customize tab and you will see a heading for "use this folder type as a template" with a drop down menu. Here you can select different categories for the folder and apply it to subdirectories also by checking the box below. This should give the folders more of a vista look! If you want to personalize further and add your own images to the folder icons you can also do this here. If you don't select the apply to subdirectories option you can manually apply different styles to different folders in subdirectories. If you don't like the way things have turned out you can also restore the default settings.

    Hope this answers your question.

    Have fun
