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:
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.
