Western Digital External Hard Drives

An excellent mobile storage device for data files, movies, music, and pictures is a portable hard drive. Western Digital hard drives and other quality brands offer several capacities, speeds, and even different color external hard disks to store data. Staples carries Western Digital and many other brands of digital storage products.

Choosing a Western Digital Hard Drive Speed
The drive's speed includes three factors, revolutions per minute (RPMs), cache size, and interface. Storage devices with higher RPMs transfer data faster between the two devices. Two standard speeds for WD My Passport portable drives are 5400 and 7200 RPMs. The cache is a reserve area for recently accessed data. Also, drives with larger caches complete data transfers faster. Cache sizes vary from 8MB to 128MB. The interface is the cable that connects the two devices. Most external drives use a USB 3.0 interface that has a transfer rate of 56 Gps. Most drives are compatible with both Microsoft Windows and Apple devices. To be compatible with other operating systems, you may need to reformat it. A USB Type-C converter is available for the newest Apple products that no longer use the USB 3.0 connection.

Find the Right Western Digital Hard Drive Capacity
Hard drives are available in 500GB to 4TB capacities. To store small amounts of data, such as 8,500 hours of music, 500 hours or 20 days of video, 155,000 photos, and 250 hours of quality, high-definition movies, consider a smaller, 500GB drive. If you need more than 1GB of storage, the Western Digital 2TB external hard drive has the capability to store 34,000 hours of music, 2,000 hours or 80 days of standard definition video, 620,000 quality photos, and 1,000 hours of high-definition movies or television shows.

How Big Are Western Digital Hard Drives?
Portable drives are small and light enough to carry in any handbag, briefcase, backpack, or carry-on. The drives are between 0.6 inches and 0.8 inches tall and 4.3 inches wide and weigh from 6 to 8.8 ounces.

Does the WD My Passport Have Password Protection?
Keep sensitive files on your portable drive with a built-in 256-bit AES encryption and password protection. Along with the password, you can leave a message to return the drive if found by recording a physical address, e-mail address, or phone number.

Do Western Digital Hard Drives Have a Wi-Fi Option?
Yes, some portable hard drive models have a built-in Wi-Fi adapter. Using the drive's software to connect to a desktop, laptop, phone, or other device, you can set a specific time daily, weekly, or monthly for files to back up automatically to the drive. With the wireless connection, you can also access information on the portable drive without having to download them to the other connected device. This is an excellent way to work on a tablet or phone that has limited storage.

Does the WD My Passport Come With A Protective Case?
Portable hard drives have a stronger case than internal ones to protect the disc from accidents. They come in a variety of colors such as blue, orange, yellow, and red. For more protection, consider adding a case to store and transport the drive.
