WD My Passport� Portable USB 3.0 Hard Drive, 2TB, Black 4.7 5 6 6
Great Product Great Product for the price, for only like $20 difference I was able to go to 2tb instead of 1. I already have a 1TB and have had it for a few months, it works great even though I have dropped it a couple of times. October 21, 2013
Great External Hard Drive Although a little on the expensive side, I like the compact design and ease of use of this hard drive. The software made backing up my files very easy. I would definitely purchase this hard drive again. October 7, 2013
Great product but... Great item-small and sleek in it's styling and just big enough to stash in the briefcase---but, Maybe I am partial to "HP Simple Save" (larger, not as portable-but it plugs in and Back-Ups almost instantly) September 6, 2013
Works Great This Portable Hard Drive works great. Was easy to set up. Only downfall is it does not come with a case. August 15, 2013

Answer:�
"1. Instructions to reformat the drive to the HFS+ Journaling file system can be found here: http://wdc.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/3865. Another option is to reformat the drive to the exFAT or the FAT32 file system which would make it compatible with both operating systems(Windows and Mac OSx). Instructions can be found on the following page: http://wdc.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/291.
2. The drives file system will determine which operating system is compatible, downsides would be related to that file system.
3. Unfortunately the backup sofware, WD Smartware, provided with the drive needs the file system on the drive to be either NTFS for the windows version of the backup software or HFS for the MAC OSX version of the backup software. You may wish to look for a 3rd party backup software that would work on both operating systems used and a file system on the drive that is compatible with both operating systems. "

Answer:�
The WD My Passport Portable USB 3.0 Hard Drive derives its power via the USB cable from the device it is connected to. It is also primarily designed to be used with computer systems. The recommended way to put your pictures on the drive would be to connect both devices directly into a computer system and copy and paste the desired data from your camera onto the drive. For other methods of transferring data from your camera onto the WD My Passport Portable USB 3.0 Hard Drive we recommend you to contact your camera manufacturer as they know the best practices for their products.

WD SmartWare

  • Your data is not just data, it's your family photos, your financial documents, your music - your life. You know you should back it up, but many of you don't. We understand. We've talked to lots of people and we've heard the reasons why people don't back up - there's no time; it's a pain; their data's not organized; they don't know how. Using what we've learned, we developed easy, automatic backup software we hope you'll really use because we understand the importance of your data.
  • It's easy.

    You're up and running in a few simple steps. Once you set it up, you can forget it because the rest is automatic.
  • It finds your data.

    • A unique visual interface lets you see the WD drives connected toyour computer.
    • WD SmartWare automatically scans your computer and finds all of your personal files, including e-mail.
    • Select the files and folders that you want backed up or back up your files by category. It's up to you.
    • The backup gauges show how much information you have to be backed up in each category. You can even mouse over a category to see afile count.
    • Simply click "Start Backup" and WD SmartWare will automatically start backing up your files.
    • As your backup is running the category gauges will change color showing you the backup as it happens.
    • When finished, you'll see a status screen and information about your backup. You only have to do this once. After the first backup, your files will be backed up automatically every time you change or add a file.
  • It's always on the job.

    WD SmartWare is always watching your computer, so when you change a file and save it, create new files, add new pictures, movies, or songs, WD SmartWare will instantly back them up.
  • It's easy to bring back lost files.

    If you ever accidentally delete an important file, or need to get an earlier version of a file, you can find and retrieve it in seconds with the easy-to-use retrieve interface.
    • Restore all of the files you’ve backed up or select a particular file or folder. Use the search function to easily find a lost file.
    • Set the number of versions you want to save so you can go back in time to retrieve an older version of a file.
