Heard about Majora's mask coming out in japan on VC but wasn't sure when it would come out here. Might pick it up, i've only been able to play it on an emulator and it's not quite the same.

Western Digital releases software to address data loss under certain conditions

at 6:27 - 27th, November 2013
Aha! This is exactly what I was talking about and why I wanted to wait for upgrading to Mavericks.
Western Digital has released a new version of its WD SmartWare hard drive software following extensive reports of data-loss on Western Digital drives after the installation of OS X Mavericks.

The MacRumors Forums, Western Digital's forums, and Apple's Support Communities all had threads about lost data after connecting Western Digital external hard drives to computers after updating to Mavericks.
WD is happy to announce the release of WD SmartWare Version 1.3.6 for Mac 10.5-10.9.

Fixed an issue related to reports of some customers, under certain conditions, experiencing data loss when updating to Apple's OS X Mavericks (10.9).
The WD SmartWare update is available for download from Western Digital's website.

Now, upon further investigation it seems that people were using some back up software instead of time machine, why anyone would do that is beyond me but to each their own I suppose.

Here's a link to that download mentioned

I don't get why Apple insists on breaking features when releasing 'updates' to their OS.

I wonder if it hampers windows to keep certain aspects of the old systems around. Maybe that's why?
