Store, carry, and protect all your sensitive and important data with the 2TB My Passport USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive for Mac from WD. With a capacity of 2TB, use it for extra storage or for backing up your videos, photos, and files. The My Passport connects to your computer via a USB 3.0 port at speeds up to 5 Gb/s, is backwards compatible with USB 2.0 at speeds up to 480 Mb/s, and is formatted as HFS+ Journaled so Mac OS X Lion, Mountain Lion, Mavericks, and Yosemite will recognize it right out of the box. For Windows users, the drive can be reformatted to work with this operating system.

Due to the mobility of portable hard drives, sensitive data on these drives can be easily lost or stolen. With built-in 256-bit AES hardware encryption, your data stays safe with always-on protection. Authentication takes place on the My Passport instead of taking up valuable system resources. Additionally, you can easily access the data on the drive without the need of driver or software installation on the host system.

The My Passport quickly backs up and retrieves files by utilizing USB 3.0 technology and draws power from a USB bus-powered port on your device. Automatic data backups have been simplified with the use of Apple Time Machine and WD Backup software that lets you create scheduled backup times. Included with the WD My Passport is a USB 3.0 cable.

Secure and Reliable
The My Passport helps you protect your precious memories and confidential files with 256-bit AES encryption. You can set an optional password to activate the hardware encryption and add an extra layer of security for your private files. Because it's hardware-based, it won't impact the speed of your transfers or slow down your computer
USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 Compatibility
When connected to a USB 3.0 port, the My Passport lets you access and save files with data transfer speeds up to 5 Gb/s, which is up to ten times faster than USB 2.0's 480 Mb/s transfer speed. The My Passport is also backwards compatible with USB 2.0
Apple Time Machine Compatibility
Apple Time Machine compatibility helps make it easy to regularly back up your files by using automatic and scheduled backups
Bus Powered
No separate power supply is needed as this drive is powered directly from the USB port on your system
Mac Formatted & Windows Compatible
While the My Passport comes pre-formatted as HFS+ Journaled for Mac OS X Lion, Mountain Lion, Mavericks, and Yosemite, it may also be reformatted and used with Windows operating systems
