comment Why must I install drivers BEFORE plugging in a new peripheral?
In addition to that, I recall that once that default driver is installed, it would be difficult (not completely impossible, but a really bad user experience) to make Windows disregard this default driver and install the proper one. Installing the drivers first will significantly reduce the number of problems that the user might experience.

comment Mac Finder: WD My Passport won't mount
Unfortunately I have no way of knowing if the problem is the same as yours, I'm just telling my personal experience. My drive is a 500 GB WD Passport and I plug it to the USB port. I had this a few times already and it always comes back eventually. It might take longer than 15 minutes (but no more than 30 in my case - it might depend on how many files you have there). It also scared the hell outta me the first time, now it's just annoying.

Why do you have to change the file extension? Just drag the file onto Notepad...

comment Get the parent of a folder from search results
Yeah, I guess that does it, but it's strange that you have to go back to the search results to achieve this.
