  • 1Description

Store and take your important information with you while on-the-go using the 2TB Elements 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.

    WD Elements 3.0 reviews

    2TB Elements USB 3.0 External Hard Drive is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 10.
    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 Working great, this WHOLE week! The hard drive just arrived a week ago.� It was and is everything I was expecting it to be.� It could last for 50 years or 50 days, I just don't know yet,� but B&H sent me an email requesting I review it, so here it is.� I'm sure you've found this review ridiculously helpful.� If so, please like this review!

    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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's Small, It's quick and It's easy I purchased this 2TB drive for my iMac's Time Machine backups. It was reformatted in just a few minutes and my 400 and some MB backup was off and running in less than 5 minutes from taking it out of the package. It's so small it fits in almost any pocket. I've been using WD drives for years.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good value + speedy Clocks about 115MB/s read+write in Blackmagic speed test on my Mac Pro. Very lightweight drive, plastic housing does not seem super heavy duty. Overall seems like a great value.
