Western Digital External Hard Drives

Western Digital external hard drives provide computer users with plenty of storage space for their music, personal files and movies. They also provide easy-to-use applications that make it simple to create data backups. These products are easy to connect to almost any computer and compatible with Microsoft Windows, Apple OSX, Linux and other operating systems. Western Digital also makes external hard drives designed for use with Xbox 360 and Xbox One gaming systems.

Simple and Fast Connections

Almost every external hard drive from Western Digital has a USB 3.0 connection. This data transfer technology provides plug-and-play connectivity, so adding extra storage to most desktops and laptops takes just a few seconds. USB 3.0 moves data quickly too, transferring up to 435MB per second, depending on the drive and computer. You can also use these drives with older devices that have USB 1.1 or 2.0 data ports.

Additional Transfer Options

Some Western Digital products provide other connection options designed to meet specific needs. External drives for Apple computers have Thunderbolt ports, which lets users daisy chain multiple drives to a single computer, simplifying data connections. Select drives feature built-in memory card readers that are ideal for importing photos or videos from cameras or cell phones.

Users who prefer no wires at all should consider a Western Digital external hard drive with wireless support. These products provide data storage access to up to eight wireless devices, making it simple to share photos from cell phones, stream video to smart televisions or back up a laptop. They also have built-in rechargeable batteries that let you take your storage almost anywhere.

Room for All Your Stuff

External drives come in a broad range of sizes. Western Digital 2TB external hard drives have room for an entire family's photos, music and movies, compact 500GB drives are ideal for casual home users and 12TB storage devices meet the needs of demanding power users or creative professionals. When choosing a drive, remember that 1TB holds about 16,660 hours of music or 32,000 photos.

Safe, Secure Storage

Many drives from Western Digital have data protection features designed to provide extra reliability and security to stored files. Password protection prevents casual data snooping, and AES encryption blocks advanced hacking attempts. Some drives also offer RAID1 support, which mirrors data across two physical disks, keeping it safe should a single drive fail.

Convenient Backup Options

Large amounts of storage can be challenging to manage, and Western Digital drives come with features and software to simplify the task. Most external drives designed for use with Macs are compatible with Time Machine, Apple's built-in backup management system. Windows users can manage data with the WD Backup application, which has a point-and-click interface that makes it easy to plan backups. It also automatically keeps archived files up to date, and it can send data to cloud services such as Dropbox. Some drives also come with Acronis backup software. This product offers advanced features, such as drive cloning and disk partitioning tools.

Drives from Western Digital combine exceptional storage with simple connectivity and flexible backup control. They come in a range of sizes that can meet any user's needs. Shop for Western Digital external hard drives at Staples and find a backup and storage solution that's right for you.
