My Book Studio external hard drive features a premium, cool-to-the-touch aluminum enclosure to complement your Mac and delivers blisteringly fast FireWire® 800 performance.

Product Description

Heat-dissipating, cool-to-the-touch aluminum enclosure.
The premium aluminum enclosure perfectly complements your Mac computer and the sleek, book-like design allows two or more My Book drives to nestle neatly together like volumes on a shelf.

Premium performance.
Save and access data at top speeds with the dual high-performance FireWire 800 interface. Also includes FireWire 400 and USB 2.0 interface for maximum flexibility.

Optional WD Smartware backup software.
Visual backup software and drive management control center. Install all components, some or none. It's up to you.

WD SmartWare™ - See your life safe in one place.

  • See your backup as it happens - Seeing is believing. Visual backup displays your content categories and shows the progress of your backup.
  • Protect your data automatically - Relax. Your data is secure. Automatic, continuous backup will instantly make a second copy whenever you add or change a file.
  • Bring back lost files effortlessly - Retrieve your valuable data to its original location whether you've lost all your data or just overwritten an important file.
  • Take control - Customize your backup, set drive security, run diagnostics, manage the power settings, and more from the WD SmartWare control center.
Formatted HFS+ Journaled.
Works out of the box with your Mac OS X Leopard or Snow Leopard system. Can easily be reformatted to work with Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7.

Password protection.
Gain peace of mind knowing that your data is protected from unauthorized access or theft with password protection and -bit hardware-based encryption. (Requires WD SmartWare software.)

Power miser.
My Book external drives are designed to save energy. WD GreenPower Technology™ lowers internal drive power consumption by up to 30%, a sleep mode reduces power during idle times, and a power-saving feature turns the drive on and off with your computer.

Runs cool
The drive is designed to run cool without a fan. Lower operating temperatures extend the life of the drive and improve data reliability, while the fan-less design reduces noise output.
