Protect your precious memories and important filesWhat's your backup plan?:

Protect your precious memories and important files

You've taken the time to create it or capture it — everything that matters to you, from financial to sentimental. But you're just one system error, one spilled latte, one stolen backpack away from losing it all.

If it matters to you, make a second copy!

Like a jet plane with more than one engine you need a backup. If your files are backed up and an important file is lost, you can relax because you have a copy.

Make it automatic. Set it and forget it.

You don't have to think about backup everyday if you use automatic backup software that does the work for you.WD offers WD SmartWare Pro automatic backup software that makes it easy to back up your important files on your schedule. With WD SmartWare Pro you can select one or both of the following two options:

  • Automatic, continuous backup to back up files as soon as they are added or changed and saved
  • Scheduled backup that allows you to pick the time, day and frequency that you back up your files.

Make it automatic. Set it and forget it.

Upgrade to WD SmartWare Pro!

Upgrade to WD SmartWare Pro for even more backup options. WD SmartWare Pro allows users to back up files to their Dropbox account or even to a non-WD external hard drive.

Upgrade to WD SmartWare Pro!

* Dropbox account required for cloud backup. Cloud services may be changed, terminated or interrupted at any time and may vary by country.

Be selective

Protect the files you create yourself whether they are text documents, e-mail messages, pictures, music, videos or game saves. If you made them, you want to save them and keep them nearby.

You don't have to back up your entire system – a time consuming task that duplicates the issues you've built up over time on your hard drive. If your system fails, use the original copies of your software programs and reinstall your operating system to get a fresh start.

Protect the files you create yourself whether they are text documents, e-mail messages, pictures, music, videos or game saves.

Back up to an external drive.

You can back up to CDs or DVDs, but this is a slow, manual process. And contrary to popular belief, most CDs and DVDs are not permanent. Low-priced CDRs may not be readable in as few as two years and thumb drives are small, lower capacities, and easy to lose.

The best backup medium is an external hard drive. It takes stacks of CDs or DVDs and handfuls of thumb drives to back up all the data that could be stored on a single external hard drive. WD SmartWare Pro makes it easy to back up to an external hard drive. High-capacity external drives are fast and allow you to keep all your backed up data in one place. For extra safety, get a two-drive external storage system and dedicate half the capacity for mirroring to automatically and instantaneously back up your backup every time. WD's external hard drives are sleek, stylish, made for your grab-and-go lifestyle and most come with our easy-to-use backup software... so let WD be your backup plan!
