Your media and files on your own personal cloud
Create your own personal cloud, without the monthly fees and mysterious location of your data. Store your media and files on the drive and access them securely over the Internet. Or, use WD's free mobile apps for easy access to share and upload your photos and videos directly to your personal cloud using your smartphone or tablet. It's like having up to 8 terabytes of extra storage for your mobile device.
Double-safe backup with RAID 1 technology
Set this system to data protection mode (also known as mirrored mode or RAID 1) and the capacity is divided in half. Half of the capacity is used to store your data and half is used for a second copy. In the unlikely event that one drive fails, your data is protected because it's duplicated on the other drive.
Maximum storage capacity with drive spanning
Out of the box, this two-drive system combines both drives into one large volume, serving as one drive for maximum capacity.
