If you use a Western Digital hard drive, be aware that the bundled utilities could cause data loss under Mavericks. Western Digital is recommending that users delay upgrading or delete the utilities.

UPDATE (January 22, 2014): Western Digital has a firmware update available for affected devices. For details, see My Book Essential (USB 3.0) software update for Mac users.
