Some Western Digital USB Hard Disk drives are increasing failure rate, and bad cluster propagation during its usage.
After diagnosing some of these disks with Victoria (which works with USB directly) i noticed that old versions of this
portable storage are the ones that have most problems.

After some research, i end up with Western Digital Universal Firmware Updater.
With this tool, i could restore 2 devices with unstable connection, and slow response.
Maybe i´m preventing other ones to go bad.

This way i recommend you fellows to check your personal storages update them, and apply the fix on your clients devices.






Some precautions are recommended before and during the procedure:

1) Be sure the update will not be interrupted by power outage, using a Notebook with battery or a Desktop/Workstation with UPS/No Break.
2) Be sure that the USB cable is in perfect conditions, and well attached (test a file transfer if possible and CRC Check it)
3) Be sure that other running programs will not interrupt the firmware updater (end process)
4) The program works connected to the internet it´s not optional, so it can download the correct update.
5) If possible, disable firewall and connect directly without proxy.

After doing the procedure, run Victoria with Remap mode to realocate bad clusters. If the device is empty, uses Erase Waits for a better result.
