Had to call WD to use on my MAC because Macs don't recognize. They were very helpful and with a couple of clicks it was done! If using with a Mac and time machine, it copies all the applications as well taking up a lot of memory, but not nearly as much as is available. I had about 5 years of photos; a least a thousand or more and it took up 91GB of the 500. This should last a long time.
