WD My Passport® Ultra™ 2TB USB 3.0/USB 2.0 Hard Drive
What's your Backup Plan?
You've taken the time to create it or capture it – everything that matters to you, from financial to sentimental. But you're just one system error, one spilled latte, one stolen backpack away from losing it all. Like a jet plane with more than one engine you need a backup. If your files are backed up and an important file is lost, you can relax because you have a copy. Protect the files you create yourself whether they are text documents, e-mail messages, pictures, music, videos or game saves. If you made them, you want to save them and keep them nearby. You don't have to back up your entire system – a time consuming task that duplicates the issues you've built up over time on your hard drive. If your system fails, use the original copies of your software programs and reinstall your operating system to get a fresh start.
You can back up to CDs or DVDs, but this is a slow, manual process. And contrary to popular belief, most CDs and DVDs are not permanent. Low-priced CDRs may not be readable in as few as two years and thumb drives are small, lower capacities, and easy to lose.
- Automatic & cloud backup: Safeguard your memories with WD SmartWare Pro automatic backup software. Back up directly to this drive or to the cloud using Dropbox.
- Sleek, high-capacity, storage to go: The perfect companion for your Ultrabook and other slim notebooks. You get up to 2 TB in a sleek, compact design.
- Secure your drive: Use WD Security to set password protection and hardware encryption and protect your files from unauthorized use or access.
- Works great with Windows® 8: The WD Windows 8 app makes it easy to discover the digital media stored on your My Passport Ultra drive with your Windows 8 computer. Your content is automatically displayed and organized so you can easily locate and enjoy your photos, videos and music.
