Double-safe backup with RAID 1 technology

Set this system to data protection mode (also known as mirrored mode or RAID 1) and the capacity is divided in half. Half of the capacity is used to store your data and half is used for a second copy. In the unlikely event that one drive fails, your data is protected because it's duplicated on the other drive.

Access and share files from anywhere

View your media collection on any screen. Whether you have a laptop, tablet, smartphone, or connected TV, enjoy your content wherever you go.

Your media and files on your own personal cloud

Create your own personal cloud, without the monthly fees and mysterious location of your data. Store your media and files on the drive and access them securely over the Internet. Or, use WD's free mobile apps for easy access to share and upload your photos and videos directly to your personal cloud using your smartphone or tablet. It's like having up to 8 terabytes of extra storage for your mobile device.

Shared storage for all your computers

Now you can store your entire family's movies, music, photos, and important files to one place for everyone in the home to share. Just plug the drive into your wireless router so that you can store and access files with any PC or Mac computer in your home.

Automatic, wireless backup for everything

Protect your precious memories and wirelessly back up all the PC and Mac computers on your network to one reliable location. Windows users can use the included WD SmartWare software and every time you save something, it's instantly backed up. Mac users can utilize all the features of Apple® Time Machine™ backup software to protect their data.

Speed without compromise
