Up to 3x faster transfer rates - When connected to a SuperSpeed USB 3.0 port this drive lets you access and save files up to 3 times faster than USB 2.0. Transfer a 2-hour HD movie in just 3 minutes instead of 13 minutes. (Performance may vary based on user's hardware and system configuration.)
WD quality inside and out - For over 20 years, millions of people worldwide have trusted their data to WD hard drives. We are successful because we understand the importance of your data and our first concern is keeping that data safe.
WD SmartWare™ software - You're in control of your backup. Install all the features, select just the components you need, or if you prefer, choose not to use the software at all.
Automatic, continuous backup - Works quietly in the background to protect your data using minimal PC resources. Whenever you add or change a file it's instantly backed up.
Password protection for privacy - Gain peace of mind knowing that your data is protected from unauthorized access with password protection and encryption. (An unencrypted model is available for those countries that restrict the sale of encrypted drives.)
