WD introduces new My Book family of drives


WD, a Western Digital company, has redesigned its My Book and My Book for Mac lines of external desktop drives to provide as much as 4TB storage capacity and enhanced data protection for those who create and collect large volumes of data, video, music and photos.

With USB 3.0 for speed, the new My Book lines are available in 2TB, 3TB and 4TB capacities for the largest content collections. They come with WD SmartWare Pro automatic back-up software with Dropbox integration offers cloud backup capabilities. What's more the WD Edition of Acronis True Image enables users to execute a full system backup and securely delete digital files and programs.    

Security measures against unauthorized access to the drive are handled through WD SmartWare Pro automatic backup software with hardware encryption and password protection. To protect files against theft, fire, flood or other natural disaster, My Book integrates Dropbox to store files in the cloud. 

For full system backup and secure deletion of files, My Book includes Acronis True Image (ATI) WD Edition.  ATI WD Edition is an integrated software suite that ensures security of all information on the computer, and can be used to securely delete any confidential data no longer needed. ATI WD is also used for disaster recovery in case of a fatal system crash, recovering the entire computer including files, software and preferences, according to Scott Steffens, general manager of WD's consumer storage products group.

The My Book for Mac will also incorporate SuperSpeed USB 3.0 and UAS connectivity for increased speed and flexibility, he adds. It's compatible with Apple's Time Machine for safe and effective backup of files.  he drive is equipped with WD Security software for password protection and hardware encryption to protect files from unauthorized access, and comes with WD Utilities, which allows users to register drives, run diagnostics, and more.

My Book and My Book for Mac hard drives are protected by a 3-year limited warranty and is available from the WD store at wdstore.com as well as select retailers and distributors. Manufacturer's suggested retail price is US$129.99 USD for the 2TB model, $149.99 for the 3TB version, and $179.99 for the 4TB device. For more info go to http://tinyurl.com/nlfgejc .
