Safe storage to go
Whether it’s by loss, theft or fire, having your laptop – along with your irreplaceable files – abruptly vanish into thin air is something that few of us would like to contemplate. The sad truth: it happens.The obvious solution is to protect your data, then stash it somewhere safe – which is where Western Digital’s new 2 TB My Passport portable hard drive comes in.
Featuring a massive storage capacity in a pocket-sized enclosure, it includes automatic backup software, so even a digital Luddite can successfully back up his or her data with ease. Built-in security features such as password protection and hardware encryption help protect files from unauthorised use. The included software provides users with flexible options: for example, you can install all the available features, just the components you require, or simply use the drive for storage without the software. You also get ultra-fast USB 3.0 connectivity along with USB 2.0 compatibility. Price: about R2 000. Visit www.westerndigital.com
