WD My Passport overview

  • 1Description

Start saving your precious memories and critical files with the 2TB My Passport USB 3.0 Secure Portable Hard Drive from WD. The My Passport comes formatted for Windows systems and connects to your notebook or desktop computer via an included USB 3.0 cable. On the inside, it sports a hard drive that delivers 2TB of storage capacity for storing your photos, videos, music, and other content. To power this drive, the My Passport runs off the computer's USB bus-powered port.

This edition of the My Passport drive comes with a redesigned black chassis, which complements your other gear. Another notable feature is WD's Backup software, which lets you create scheduled backups, to help preserve your data automatically. In addition to backing up data, WD has armed this drive with hardware encryption and WD Security software to safeguard your sensitive files from unauthorized users.

Back up Automatically
The My Passport drive comes preloaded with WD Backup software to ensure that your photos, videos, music and documents don't get lost. You can set it to run automatically based upon your schedule. Just pick the time and frequency to back up important files from your system onto the My Passport drive.
Password Protection with Hardware Encryption
The My Passport drive's built-in 256-bit AES Hardware Encryption with WD Security software helps keep your content private and safe. You can activate password protection and set your own personalized password. Additionally, the drive can display a "return-if-found" message as the password prompt to help find its way back to you if it ever accidentally gets left behind.
Easy to Use
My Passport portable storage is ready to use out of the box so you can start transferring files, saving your memories, and backing up critical data right away. It comes with WD Backup, WD Security, and WD Drive Utilities software to help protect your data.

    WD My Passport reviews

    2TB My Passport USB 3.0 Secure Portable Hard Drive (Orange) is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my needs! I had a couple of goals when purchasing this portable hard drive: 1.) I wanted to use it to store photos while using my MacBook air, due to the fact that the Air has only a 256 GB hard drive. 2.) I also wanted to transfer photos and data from an older Toshiba PC laptop onto this portable drive. 3.) I wanted to set up Time Machine for the Air on this portable drive. A friend showed me how to partition the WD 2TB Portable Hard Drive using the "exfat" formatting option which will read and write to Mac and PC. We then set up 25% of the WD for Time Machine backups. The portable hard drive is small and compact and I chose the orange color so I can find it in my laptop case! So far I am quite happy!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hard for Me to Use I use a computer every day, but am not knowledgeable about the workings of computers. The device was not easy for me to use. I did not know terms used in the User Guide, and I was unable to install the device myself. The User Guide stated that the kit included a "quick install guide", but none was included. The User Guide stated to run "WD Discovery.exe." to install the device, but the menu for the device on my computer did not include "WD Discovery.exe. That menu did include "WD Backup.swstor" which apparently is the option to select to install. I called WD. The WD technician accessed my computer remotely over the internet and installed the device, but he moved too fast for me to remember or repeat the steps he took. After that, the User Manual is still not useful for me. I do not understand how the technician installed the device, and I have trouble understanding how to use the device.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay thus far Was a bit of an issue setting the system with my laptop, but after a lot of clicking and reading the manual that comes with it, the hard drive began to save my images. Quick write speed which surprised me.
