Western Digital 1TB Essential USB 2.0 Desktop HD - WDBAAF0010HBK-NESN

Discontinued.
Condition: Brand new, USA Warranty
WD's popular My Book Essential USB external drive gives you the tools to back up your data automatically and continuously see your backup as it happens, bring back lost files effortlessly, and password-protect your drive.

The world's best-selling external hard drive now features a new, smart, visual backup solution that protects your data automatically.

Smaller, sleeker, more streamlined design ? WD has made these award-winning drives even smaller, sleeker, and more elegant. As always, this book-like shape takes up less space on your desk and allows two or more My Book drives to nestle neatly together like volumes on a shelf.

WD SmartWare - A control center for your drive that gives you the power to:

  • 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.
  • See your backup as it happens ? Seeing is believing. Visual backup displays your content categories and shows the progress of your backup.
  • 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.

Drive lock ? Gain peace of mind knowing that your data is protected from unauthorized access or theft with password protection and military-grade 256-bit hardware-based encryption.

Illuminated capacity gauge - See at a glance how much space is available on your drive.
USB 2.0 interface ? A simple connection that offers convenience and compatibility among multiple computers.

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.

Planet friendly ? We designed a small box to minimize waste and used recycled material. We encourage you to recycle it.
