Worldwide Warranty Policy and Limitations
Western Digital ("WD") values your business and always attempts to provide you the very best of service.
No limited warranty is provided by WD unless your WD Product ("Product") was purchased from an authorized distributor or authorized reseller. Distributors may sell Products to resellers who then sell Products to end users. Please see below for warranty information or obtaining service. No warranty service is provided unless the Product is returned to an authorized return center in the region (warranty regions are identified as Canada, U.S.A., Latin America, Europe, Middle East, Africa, Asia Pacific, India and Thailand) where the Product was first shipped by WD, which may have regional specific warranty implications.
If your Product was purchased as a component integrated within a system by a system manufacturer, no limited warranty is provided by WD. Please contact the place of purchase or the system manufacturer directly for warranty service.
Retail Kits that are assembled and branded by Western Digital, along with internal drives sold as "Component Drives" (internal hard drives that WD sold and specifically did not package as part of a Western Digital assembled and branded retail kit), come with a limited warranty. Depending on the type of sales transaction, product warranty may differ from the general warranty information listed herein.

The term of your limited warranty period shall commence on the purchase date appearing on your purchase receipt from an authorized distributor or authorized reseller and extends only for the period of time set forth in the Product documentation.
Proof of purchase shall be required to be eligible for this warranty and to establish the commencement date of this warranty. To verify the warranty of your Product and update your purchase date (if required), please use our online Warranty Status Check service. In the United States, some states do not allow limitations on how long implied warranties last, so the above limitation may not apply to you.
Please refer to your Product manual for a statement of your limited warranty. A Product manual can be obtained from your authorized distributor or reseller or the WD web site.
THERE ARE NO WARRANTIES WHICH EXTEND BEYOND THE FACE OF THE WD LIMITED WARRANTY. WD DISCLAIMS ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, REGARDING THE PRODUCTS, INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR NONINFRINGEMENT. IN THE UNITED STATES, SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES, SO THE ABOVE EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
WD recertified products may consist of customer return units and may be repaired. All products are tested and determined to meet WD's stringent quality standards before they are sold as recertified. Please note that some recertified items may have marks, scratches, or other slight signs of wear.
Recertified product purchases made on the WD Store website:
- Prior to August 20, 2019, carry a manufacturer's limited warranty of 6 months.
- On or after August 20, 2019, carry a manufacturer's limited warranty of 12 months.
