I have 2 units of WD My Passport Ultra (Backup) with the same PCB model.
https://support-en.wd.com/app/products/product-detail/p/1377
I have encrypted both of them with WD software (HARDWARE ENCRYPTION) and they work ok but I have question:
If someone (donate) have the same PCB model from none encrypted drive
and he replace it with my (Patient) PCB encrypted drive,
will it remove the hardware encryption and he get access to my files and data?
or that the encryption is set on the magnetic plate and not on the PCB?

No you misunderstood what I meant. You need to ask WD about the encryption aspect of your PCB question.

No...you asked in the WD community.....same as a forum. You have to contact WD Tech support either with a support ticket or more preferably a live person on the phone.
