WD External Hard Drives

External hard drives provide space for movies, music and data files. WD external hard drives offer a host of features designed to meet the needs of home and business users. They're compatible with a variety of operating systems, including Apple OSX, Microsoft Windows and Linux, and include high-capacity desktop products as well as ultra-portable wireless drives.

Exceptional Data Capacity

An external drive's primary function is to store data. WD products include drives in a range of sizes that handle the storage needs of a single casual user, a family or an entire office. For example, a WD 2TB external hard drive holds about 500 DVD-quality movies or 64,000 digital photos, while the largest 12TB products store almost 200,000 hours of MP3 audio, about 23 years worth of continuous listening. Even the smallest WD drive, with 500GB of space, holds about 8,300 MP3 music files or 500 hours of digital video.

Convenient Connectivity Options

Dealing with computer hardware can be challenging, but WD uses USB 3.0 technology in its drives, which simplifies the task of connecting external hard drives. USB 3.0 offers simple plug-and-play installation and very fast data transfer rates, up to 435 megabytes per second, depending on your computer and the drive chosen. It's also backward compatible with USB 1.1 and 2.0, so drives will work with older systems too.

Wireless Data Storage

Some WD external hard drives supplement USB 3.0 technology with Wi-Fi compatibility. These products provide convenient access to streaming video and data storage to smartphones, tablets, game consoles and smart TVs, serving as a wireless hub for up to eight devices simultaneously. A built-in rechargeable battery lets users take their data almost anywhere, and WD's My Cloud app makes it simple to share images or music from mobile devices.

Specialized Data Transfer

Select external drives from WD offer additional connection options. Built-in memory card readers simplify importing photos or videos from cameras, video recorders or smartphones. Apple computer users can take advantage of WD drives with Thunderbolt ports. These products offer an easy-to-use, high-speed data connection and can connect multiple drives to a single computer port.

Simple Backup Solutions

Most WD drives come with software that handles the details of backing up and managing large amounts of data. WD Backup, a Windows application, lets users create one or more backup plans and then keeps archives up to date with automated scheduled backups. It can also use cloud services such as Dropbox to store backup files and provides convenient one-click file recovery. Acronis, a backup software with features such as drive cloning and disk partitioning capabilities, offers advanced users additional data management options. Many drives also support backup applications built into the operating system, such as Apple's Time Machine.

Secure WD External Hard Drive Storage

Keeping personal information and business data safe is an everyday concern for modern computer users, and many WD drives have built-in security options to help keep files safe. Some drives support AES encryption and password protection, features that guard data from hacking attempts or casual intrusion. Select products also support RAID1, which protects against data loss in the event of a single drive failure.

WD products offer a range of easy-to-use and secure storage options designed for use at home or work. Find a WD external hard drive to meet your needs when you shop the products available at Staples.
