Western Digital Corp is offering free software to about 1 mi

Post by bob » 06/28/06, 3:28 pm

Western Digital Corp. is offering free software to about 1 million consumers to resolve a class-action lawsuit alleging that its computer hard drives stored less material than promised _ a discrepancy stemming from high-tech's different standards for sizing up digital data.

Under the settlement announced Tuesday, Western Digital will give away software designed to back up and recover computer files to anyone who bought one of the company's disk drives from March 22, 2001, through Feb. 15 of this year.

To get the software, the 1 million eligible consumers must register their claims before July 16 at http://www.wdc.com/settlement.

Yep,they have been sending me emails about this.They are supposed to send me an email when it is all "settled"

If and when I get this software and anyone wants a copy I will be glad to oblige.(even if it isn`t worth a shit,I guess you could at least check it out.)

Frankly I would like to see a copy to determine if it would work with other HD's or is just WD specific.
