Product information

Ultra-compact and ultra-fast, WD's My Passport Ultra is the perfect storage companion for the demanding on-the-go user.

  • WD SmartWare Pro software automatically backs up your files, both locally and online to your personal Dropbox account. Scheduled back ups and the option to choose between file or folder backup means the WD Ultra works around you.

  • Connecting WD My Passport Ultra to a USB port will give you fast transfer speeds, at up to 3 times faster than USB 2.0. USB 3.0 will also work with USB 2.0 ports, so you can still connect to older machines.

  • WD My Passport Ultra is just half an inch thick, making it easy to slip into a bag or even a pocket for easy carrying. The robust enclosure protects the durable drive inside that has been designed with shock tolerance and long-term reliability in mind.

  • The WD Windows 8 app makes navigating content stored on your My Passport Ultra easy, with content automatically displayed and organised so you can easily locate your favourite files.

  • WD Security allows you to set up password protection and hardware encryption for your drive, to help keep your files private.

  • WD Drive Utilities keep things running smoothly, with tools diagnostics, drive timer, registration and more.

Q & As


WD My Passport Ultra Portable Hard Drive, USB 3.0, 1TB 4.5 5 12 12
Easy to use I'm not exactly expert with anything IT, but all I did with this was plug it into computer, drag across the files I wanted to store onto the icon, and they uploaded/downloaded (whatever!) without me doing anything more. Doddle. Can highly recommend the product, and of course it's got the extended guarantee with John Lewis. 22 July 2014
Great disappointment Bought this in March this year as my existing Maxtor external drive was seeming a bit old and creeky. Last week my pc crashed and has had to be replaced. Now I find that My Passport Ultra has either not saved my files or has put them somewhere in the ether and I cannot access them. There are a good many posts on various websites saying the same thing. I have tried all the recommended ways to bring my files up, all a waste of time. The folders indicated where my files are supposed to be are all empty folders. What a waste of time and money, not to mention the loss of my folders from the last 3 months. 22 June 2014
Good drive Quick drive, usb3 , installed software not used as yet but may be useful. I use it just as a drag and drop tool. The drive does not force you to use the bundled software which is good. Small neat unit powered by USB, recommended. 27 May 2014
WD My Passport Ultra Portable Hard Drive, USB 3.0, 1TB Second one purchased. Extremely reliable an dust plug and play. Highly recommend these drives. Worth the slightly higher price than others and the build quality is excellent. 29 April 2014
Good value portable hard drive A lot of storage for such a compact hard drive. The plastic case on first glance seems a bit flimsy but having used it for a few weeks I'm becoming more confident that it will provide enough protection for day to day use. The read and write transfer speeds are very satisfactory. Good all-rounder. 30 March 2014
Brilliant! Slim, attractive design, fast and very quiet. Just plug it in and it works. Great product. 25 February 2014
Portable Hard Drive I bought this as a USB3 external drive to back up my lap top. It simply plugged into the laptop (windows7) and installed the drivers and was ready to go. It has worked perfectly up to now, without any hitches. 19 February 2014
So far, so good. I wish I had this a year ago, before I lost everything on my computer! Very easy to use; just plug in and go. 1TB gives me so much space; probably more than I will ever use. Compared to others with similar storage space, it offers better value for money. A minor point: it would be more useful to have a hard-sided case rather than a soft pouch. 18 February 2014
