WD Drive Utilities allows you to scan your WD drives and scan them for potential issues and problems and solve them easily. Use this tool to manage and tweak your WD drives easily.

You should install this application if you have a WD hard drive or disk. It’s a lightweight app that helps you scan and manage your WD drives to perfection.

Analyze Your Disks’ Health

One thing you must know about this tool is that it doesn’t allow you to scan or process other disks than WD. Instead, it will work with several external hard drives from My Passport, Easystore, and My Book Western Digital series.

All you need to do is install the app, connect it to your preferred WD drive, and then access the functionalities from there.

The app allows you to perform large-scale, smaller, and quicker checks for your disks. If your disk hasn’t been up to speed lately, you will do better to perform a complete scan on your disk to see if anything is wrong.

If you need a quick disk check-up, this app will allow you to do that.

Take Advantage of the RAID Configuration

You can also use the RAID configuration, which is a helpful feature, especially for more advanced app users. When the check-up of your disk is complete, it will display the health of your disk, and that’s when you’ll want to use the RAID configuration.

The default RAID setting for your disk could be Stripper (0), Mirrored (1), and Individual Drives (JBOD).

One thing to note is that if you decide to touch the configurations, you might lose all your data from your external drive.

That’s why creating a disk backup is important before you do anything with the configurations.


WD Drive Utilities is a crucial application if you have a WD drive – it will help you manage your WD drives and configure them so that they will work as fast as possible.
