WD My Passport Ultra Portable Hard Drive, USB 3.0, 1TB, Black

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.
