WD Elements 3.0 Overview

  • 1Description

Store and take your important information with you while on-the-go using the 2TB Elements Portable USB 3.0 External Hard Drive from WD. With a capacity of 2TB, it can be used for additional storage or for backing up your videos, photos, music, documents, and other files. The Elements drive connects to your computer with 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 NTFS so Windows 10, 8.1, and 7 systems will recognize it right out of the box. For Mac users, the drive can be formatted to work with Mac OS.

The Elements drive quickly backs up and retrieves files by utilizing USB 3.0 technology and draws power from a USB bus-powered port on your device, meaning that it requires no other additional external power source. Automatic data backups have also been simplified with free software that lets you create scheduled backup times. The WD Elements drive is protected by a limited 2-year worldwide warranty and a USB cable is included.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Western Digital Doesn't Provide Backup Software I'm sure this is a excellent portable drive, but WD Backup & WD SmartWare doesn't support this drive. That was my reason for purchasing this drive was that their software was easy to use and worked flawlessly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from External Storage This one of best portable storage devices I own. I use it for backup, travel, and long term storage. It is fast and reliable. The cost is so reasonable... I even stored the 1,000s of photos of the grandchildren and gave it to my son so he has history of his children growing up that is not lost on a cell phone upgrade. Highly recommended.
