Anyone have any? I have a WD30EZRX that's nearly full and when I tried to change its enclosure the drive needed to be re-initialized (formatted) before use. Are all GPT drives like this?

That shouldn't happen, what OS is telling you that it need to be re-formatted? I have a 3TB drive formatted with GPT that I moved from my desktop to an external drive with no issue.
