Do you have any info whether this is a CMR or a SMR drive?

Possibly CMR, as at least some WDC SMR drives (WD40EZAZ) indicate Trim support and smartctl 7.2 would report it.

Hi,

I have smartctl v 7.2 (macOS Mojave).

Doing some research, and given this is 8Tb and that its one physical HDD in the external USB enclosure, it seems it could be WD Red HDD (CMR) but other reports (YT videos) seem to indicate that WD no longer uses WD Red but WD Ultrastar DC HC320.

This page shows the breakdown of SMR vs CMR for the WD disks.

So not sure, but if I find more definitive info I update the ticket. Using the WD model number decoder: D means Enterprise Self Encrypting Drive (SED)/WD Red.

thanks !

It will be a white label drive, only WD80EFAX and WD80EFBX is Red (Plus). Drives not explicitly sold as Reds are simply not Reds; they're just that; white labels.
