Bought this on the recommendation of a friend who went through a painful process of trying different backup systems and finally and successfully ended up with the 2TB WD My Book. He was impressed with how easy it was to back up his desktop and his laptop. Three weeks later he lost the hard drive in his laptop, got the hard drive replaced, and was surprised to find how straight forward and accurately the WD My Book software/hardware restored all of his backup files to his new hard drive.
I have not had to restore files yet but I have installed the WD 2TB My Book on two laptops and run backups several times and it could not be easier and of course I am confident of the quality of the backups relative to my friend's previous experience.
I have not downloaded the Acronis System Clone software or, of course, tried it yet, but will as soon as possible. I am leery of system cloning software because it always seems to require the exact same hard drive and if you loose your hard drive the odds seem slim that you can find an exact replacement - but if you get hit with a nasty root-kit or virus a recovery from a system clone could save you a lot of time and agony getting all of your installed system and applications software back.
The Staples price, purchase, and delivery process was the best as usual.

While the unit seems to perform as expected I found the user manual to be inadequate. Granted, my computer skills range somewhere between basic and average, but it shouldn't have been necessary for me to contact WD twice with questions, as well as going back to the store to question the associate that assisted my purchase. It seems to me that the author of the manual just assumed a minimal level of competency in the reader to omit basic information about the unit's functionality for back-up and offline storage.

Good, solid drive

Comments about WD My Book 2TB Desktop USB 3.0 External Hard Drive (Black):

I use the WD 2TB external drive to back up my laptop locally. I do a BMRbackup using Storegrid from Vembu technologies. The 2TB drive is fast and very dependable. I knocked it off my desk by accident when I first got it. The disk didn't skip a beat and has been working perfectly.

WD My Book 2TB Desktop USB 3.0

By Howard

from Huntsville, AL

Verified Buyer

Comments about WD My Book 2TB Desktop USB 3.0 External Hard Drive (Black):

Installation could not have been any easier, just plug and play. It sits in an upright position so it does not take up too much space. Runs quietly with no knocking or loud fan sounds. The only way I know it is working is by power light on the front of the unit. I am using it in a Windows 7 64 bit OS and it only has USB 2.0 connections. The value added in this package is the backup software that is bundled with the drive (actually, delivered right on the drive).

We needed the external drive for a back-up program. My Book was easy to install and get working. It's fast and does the job without any extra fuss.
