WD External Hard DrivesView all 55 items
External hard drives are essential for homes and businesses with growing digital data collections. Western Digital® external hard drives provide secure, easily accessible areas to archive unused files without having to stock up on CDs and USB flash drives. When it comes time to choose an external drive that can connect to your PC or Mac, consider what type of solution is best. Western Digital offers a variety of desktop and portable options to suit your setup, including models with Cloud support for easy access from anywhere.
Desktop External Hard Drives
Ideal for a wide variety of homes and offices, a desktop external drive, like the Western Digital My Book or Western Digital Elements can be placed right next to your computer. The slim, sleek profile takes up minimal desk space, and with terabytes of storage available and speedy USB 3.0 data transfer support, uploading photos, documents, music and videos is easy.
Portable External Hard Drives
If it's necessary to take files on the go, enjoy the freedom of a portable drive, like the Western Digital® My Passport, with a carrying case. The compact design makes it easy to stow the drive in your briefcase or backpack. However, don't let the physical size fool you - robust file capacities reaching upwards of 4TB make this hard drive just as valuable as a standard desktop model.
No matter what you store on your hard drive, ensure it remains safe and sound. With Western Digital, precious memories and sensitive personal files are safeguarded with built-in hardware encryption and password protection. Plus, backup software helps ensure optimal data recovery in the event of a crash.
