Computers are increasingly being shipped with more and more space available on the hard disk. This is definitely a positive trend, though many still find that space continues to be a premium. The best possible solution is to get an external hard disk like the 1 TB, My Passport Ultra external hard drive by WD. The hard drive comes with a USB port that is compatible with both, the 2.0 and the 3.0 formats. Connecting it to a USB 3.0 port will allow you to transfer data to and from your computer at blazingly fast speeds.
The Hard Drive is perfect for people who wish to store large quantities of files like movies, music, important documents and sensitive data in a safe and secure manner. With the WD Security features, you can password protect and encrypt your drive to keep prying eyes away from your files. The WD SmartWare Pro is an automatic backup feature that syncs your data and backs it up in the background, thereby keeping your data safe from corruption while using minimal PC resources. The drive backs up data to the cloud so that you always have an online copy of the files you choose to backup.
The WD External Hard Drive is USB powered, which means there is no need for extra wires or to keep an extra USB port reserved to simply provide power to the unit. The hard drive is enclosed within a durable shell that provides it resistance to shock, outside elements and also gives it long-term reliability. You can thus rest assured that your data will not get corrupted just because your drive was knocked about a little by accident.
While more and more movies, games and shows load your system, this WD Passport Ultra is here with 1 TB of storage space to let you comfortably store all your media and personal data. The portable hard drive features the WD SmartWare Pro backup software that lets you use Dropbox to back up to the cloud or back up to the drive itself directly.
Built in an ultra-sleek and stylish design, the WD Passport sports a slim 15.4 mm thick body that makes it extremely convenient to carry it around. The device bears a sturdy body that is designed to last in order to keep your data safe.
The device comes with the WD SmartWare Pro automatic backup software that helps protect your data and keep it all safe by creating instant backups. With the WD Security you can password protect your data and also add hardware encryption for your drive to help keep your data private.
Integrating both the USB 2.0 as well as the USB 3.0 connectivity options, the hard disk can be connected to all your USB 2.0 devices to transfer data. The USB 3.0 takes you to the next generation and lets you connect and transfer data at ultra high speeds.
The device is compatible with the XP, Vista and Windows 8 versions while the Mac operating systems supported are Leopard, Snow Leopard and Mountain Lion with prior reformatting.
Experience blazing speeds with the USB 3.0 interface that lets you transfer data at up to 5 Gbps while the USB 2.0 interface transfers data at a maximum of 480 Mbps.
This hard disk derives power from the USB connection without requiring an external power adapter, making it more portable.
