Backup:

Protect what matters most

You've taken the time to create it — everything that matters to you, from financial to sentimental. But you're just one press of the delete key, one spilled latte, one lost laptop away from losing it all.

What is backup and why is it important?

Backup simply means keeping a second copy of your files on another device like an external hard drive. If you lose an important file, there’s no need to worry because you have another copy and can easily restore it.

What is backup and why is it important?

Protecting your important stuff is easier than ever

WD Backup makes it easy to protect your important files on your schedule, automatically. WD Backup finds your photos, music, videos and documents and adds them to your backup plan.  Simply pick the time, day and frequency that you back up and relax knowing you have a second copy of what matters most to you.

Protecting your important stuff is easier than ever

Fast backup

After the first backup is completed, WD Backup detects and backs up only new and updated files, saving you valuable time.

Fast backup

Back up your way

If you are an advanced user, you can customize a backup plan to meet your needs — create one big back up process or multiple plans to backup different files or folders on unique schedules. Plus, you can also back up to your Dropbox or Baidu Cloud cloud-service account.*

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

It's easy to recover

To restore a single file or folder, select the time and date of the files you want to recover and press the restore button. That’s it, your files are back where you originally stored them.

Security:

WD Security | safe and accessible

WD understands the importance of your photos, music, videos and files so My Passport Ultra and My Passport for Mac comes equipped with some powerful technology to help keep your digital life secure.

WD Security | safe and accessible

Keep your private stuff private

You have a password on your mobile phone, why not on your My Passport? You store and back up your personal files and photos on it and it’s important to keep them secure.

It’s easy, just set a password on your My Passport and WD Security activates 256-bit AES hardware encryption. Unlike software-based solutions, WD’s hardware encryption has essentially no impact on performance.

Keep your private stuff private

Portable security

WD Security is hardware based and built into the drive. Your files are accessible and safe even when you plug your My Passport Ultra or My Passport for Mac into a computer that does not have WD Security installed. Enter your password and the self-contained security application on the drive kicks into operation.

Portable security

Auto-unlock option

For convenient, quick access, you can set WD Security to automatically unlock the drive when you are working on a known computer.
