    Looks like it's for the My Book Live NAS, not just plain external USB hard drives.

    I'm pretty sure I own a plain jane external drive.... But it hasn't been plugged in for a couple of years.

    My Book devices issued a factory reset command

    After further owners confirmed that their devices suffered the same issue, owners reported that the MyBook logs showed that the devices received a remote command to perform a factory reset starting at around 3 PM yesterday and through the night.

    Again, these are for WD My Book Live or MyCloud NAS devices, not just regular USB external hard drives.
