    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.
