Product information

Serious about storage, this hard drive from Western Digital not only has a colossal 8TB storage capacity, but you can also access all your data through the means of your own personal ‘cloud’ using the internet. If you want to make doubly sure your data is backed up then use the second hard drive to create a mirror image back up. Even with this exceptional storage capacity, the My Book Live Duo still delivers best in class performance speeds.

Key features:

  • Using the WD Cloud feature allows you to store all your media and files your My Book at home and access them securely over the internet. As long as you can access the internet you can gain access to your files from wherever you are in the world. There are no monthly subscriptions and unlike web based clouds you know exactly where all your data is being stored, securely on your My Book. If you have a smart phone or tablet you can use the WD App to bring your photos and files to your fingertips.

  • My Book Live Duo features RAID configuration (Redundant Array of Independent Disks), so you can choose the mode that’s suitable for you. RAID 0 boosts performance, making it perfect for designing or editing graphic intensive media files. RAID 1 provides ultra-safe data protection by creating duplicates of your data. You can also set the drive to JBOD (Just a Bunch Of Disks) to access each drive independently. This can be perfect for running Windows on a Mac computer.

  • The total capacity of this dual drive system is 8TB. This colossal storage space could allow you to save up to 1,600,000 photos or 615 hours of video or 2,000,000 songs on this drive, depending on file size, format and settings. Connect your hard drive to your wireless network and the clever My Book will automatically back up everything you save.

  • Display your holiday photos or watch a home video through your TV. The built in media server on the My Book allows you to stream music, pictures or video to any device that supports DNLA.

  • WD Drive Utilities is included, so you can register your drive, run diagnostics, manage RAID or JBOD modes and more with ease.
