unless you installed special tracking software there is no way to trace your hardware.

I doesn't install software by myself but can it be traced by WD MY SECURITY or WD MY UTILTY software as they came pre-installed so is their any chances they can track it for me

I might be wrong, however, I thought those WD utilities are concerned only with hard-drive encryption and maybe the backup/restore operations.
