Product Highlights
  • Portable Drive With 1TB Storage
  • USB 3.0 Plug-and-Play Connectivity
  • User-Friendly Software Suite Included
  • Automatic Back-Up Software Included
  • Windows and Mac Compatible

The 1TB My Passport USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive from WD is a convenient, high capacity option for anyone with a lot of videos, photos, music, and files that they want to keep secure--and take on the road.

Designed for speed and convenience, the My Passport series of hard drives make backing-up your files fast, easy, and most importantly automatic. You can set up the included software to automatically back up files and folders so you never have to worry about making copies of your favorite photos, videos, or music. It has a low impact on computer resources while running in the background, and will instantly back up any files the moment you add or change them.

Using high-speed USB 3.0 technology, and also compatible with any USB 2.0 port, you can now transfer files faster than ever before, with rates of up to three times faster than previous USB 2.0 technology. Keep those files not only stored, but protected, using WD Security for password protection and hardware encryption--to protect your files from unauthorized use or access.

Massive capacity, yet small design
Offering a capacity of 1TB in a near pocket-sized enclosure, My Passport hard drives are the ideal companion for taking your videos, photos, music and files around with you--or safely stored at home.
Automatic, continuous backup software
Creating and storing copies of your files means never losing your photos or music, and always having a copy to bring back. WD's automatic backup software makes this easy by quietly working in the background to help protect your data, while using minimal PC resources. Whenever you save or change a file, it is instantly backed up without you having to manually move or copy a thing.
Ultra-fast USB 3.0 transfer rates
When connected to a USB 3.0 port, My Passport lets you access and save files with blazing speed compared to USB 2.0. Reduce transfer time by up to 3 times when compared to USB 2.0 transfer rates. However with this single drive you do get compatibility with your USB 2.0 devices today and the speed of USB 3.0 when you're ready to step up to the next generation. The drive is also powered through the USB port, so there's no need to lug around a bulky power adapter.
WD Security and WD Drive Utilities
WD Security utility allows you to set password protection and hardware encryption for your drive to protect your files from unauthorized use or access. Or register your drive, set drive security, run diagnostics and more, using WD Drive Utilities.

    I bought this to store all my photos so they were not taking up space on my computer or risk losing them to a computer virus. It serves the purpose very well. The 1 TB size was more than ample to store the 4,000 photos I had on the computer, both JPEG and RAW formats, and did not hardly make a 'dent' in the amount of space on this drive. It will take me years to fill the drive up completely. This was a very good investment as far as my wallet and peace of mind are concerned. I had been leaving all my photos on memory cards and was accumulating quite a few of them. My worst fear was the family finding a card to use and wiping out my pictures. I travel with several cards and transfer the images to the Passport when I get home. The Passport is small enough to fit in my camera/computer bag if I decide to travel with it and seems durable enough to handle the trip. It was very easy to hook up to my computer and the install menus walked me through everything. It took 12-15 minutes to download the initial 4,000 photographs, but is very fast downloading the smaller groups of photos that are on my camera after each shooting session.

    I could not install the WD program into my computers, either into my PC or my laptop. I spent about 3 hours on the telephone with two diferent technitians from WD and they could not do it. One even took over my PC and tried it, nothPassport and now use it as an exring. I deleted the programs that came with the Passport and now use it as an external hard drive for storage.

        i have many images on disc or prints. this helps keep them organized and available in on specific place. i do not have to hunt through several boxes of disc or photographs to find a specific image. they are all together in one place labeled for easy access. great.

            Good looking, lightweight, compact storage. Great as far as that goes. Included backup software nearly useless. They try and soak you for more money for a "pro" version, which is redic. Beats Toshiba software, which wouldn't install on Windows 7 Sony. Be warned: The Passport won't allow mirror backup; it's a non-bootable disk by design, but fine if you use Windows Backup Utility and make a CD startup disk. Is it reliable? I'll know in a couple of years. But generally, you can't count on any one single backup.

                  This couldn't be easier to use. Plug it in, and your are ready to go. I'm not a computer person, and I bought this to backup my computer. I was able to partition the drive, schedule and start my backup in about 5 minutes. This is a great buy for this much storage.

                          This passport is a good use to store my files externally... My computer crashed a few years ago and "DUMB ME", I didn't back it up... "DUMB ME TWICE"... This time the computer wouldn't boot up and fortunately the memory was there- I got this unit and it is what I needed... Just plug it in the USB receptacle, the computer recognized it and start storing away- A TB was more than adequate memory for me...

                                    This is my 4th My Passport. At first I thought that the colors were silly but it comes in extremely handy to have silver (that I had to number each), red, and blue. So far always reliable. Great size. Good looking.

                                            This is a very convenient hard drive that can hold a lot of information! I purchased this portable hard drive with the Western Digital Nomad Rugged Case. I feel like if you are going to invest in this hard drive, you should make sure it is protected with this anti-shock hard shell case. It's very cool because you don't even need to take the drive out of the case to insert the cord in, there's an opening through the case where you can insert the cord through. I don't even take my hard drive out of the case at all. Only, sometimes do I open the case to look at how nice the portable hard drive looks-it's a groovy red metallic color. The size of the drive is perfect for storing my photography files.

                                                I like this 1TB portable HD by Western Digital. Works just perfect, very small size, just to put in the palm and to go with. I choose the red color which looks now the box luxury. No complain. Fast delivery in good conditions by BHphotovideo. Thank you!

                                                  "What's on my drive? Oh just a bunch of irreplaceable stuff, that's all".

                                                  I've started scanning and shredding paperwork at home, don't keep much paper around the house anymore; it's all on my external drives. In addition to that I've digitized dozens of precious VHS home videos and have gigabytes of digital photos, movies and MP3s.

                                                  But by far the most valuable things on my computer and external drives are the 950 fishing and diving GPS waypoints that I've collected over the years, truly irreplaceable!

                                                  This reliable WD 1TB HD is one of several WD external HDs that I trust with my irreplaceable stuff. I like this drive because of its large capacity, small size, quiet and cool operation, compatibility with Mac OSX and Windows, easy setup, USB 3.0 connectivity with lightning fast transfer speeds, really great price and free Shipping!
                                                  Did I mention free shipping? I like free shipping.

                                                  Yeah the stuff on my external hard drives can never be replaced.
