WD has redesigned its My Book and My Book for Mac lines of external desktop drives to provide as much as 4 TB storage capacity and enhanced data protection.
With USB 3.0 for speed, the new My Book lines are available in 2 TB, 3 TB
and 4 TB capacities.
The new drives' data protection features are backing up content
collections. WD SmartWare Pro automatic back-up software with Dropbox
integration offers cloud backup capabilities, and 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
PC 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 PC including files, software and preferences.
The My Book for Mac will also incorporate SuperSpeed USB 3.0 and UAS
connectivity. Available in 2 TB / 3 TB capacities, My Book for Mac is
compatible with Apple's Time Machine for effective backup of files. The
drive is equipped with WD Security software for password protection and
hardware encryption to protect files from unauthorized access, and comes
