I just shucked a WD Elements 10T Drive from B&H...

...and it's a slightly different process than the we easyStore from Best Buy.

If you've done the easyStore or watch the YouTube videos, the drive is easily removed from the internal carriage or frame by tipping up the side opposite the connectors while holding it label side down. Easy Peasy.

The B&H Elements is slightly different. It doesn't tip up like the easyStore. It's held in place by four rubber holders at each corner. You have to remove the light pipe first, then push up slightly on the same side as you would the easyStore. Wiggle the plastic frame a bit and you can pull the rubber holders off the two elevated corners and pull the drive forward, up and out. Not really a big deal, just not easypeasy.

The USB board is removed with two Phillips screws instead of one and one Torx. Done.

I don't know if the change in design is just an update or specific to the B&H version of the WD. But all bits are reusable with a spare bare drive. I put a 4T drive in the last one and will do the same with this.

So which drive is actually installed in this? How much cache does it have?

The current price of $213 seems a bit high to me to go to the effort of removing the internal drive, was it on sale recently??

I have no idea on the drive.

It was a white label, unknown if it was something else rebadged.

It was on sale at B&H for $160. Best Buy has had it for the same price not too long ago.

The label will show the part/model number. You can search Google for that to identify the type of drive.
