Western Digital WD My Book 6TB Review
An external hard drive is a great way to expand your computer's storage without having to worry about making more room on it, and the Western Digital WD My Book 6TB is a perfect device to do so. The advantages of an external hard drive are even more obvious when you have to work with a laptop on a regular basis and when you would like more than what it is able to offer. In such cases, the presence of an external hard drive on your desk is mandatory.
The Western Digital WD My Book 6TB provides more storage space than you probably need, but it is always great to have more than less. However, if you are a data hoarder that likes to keep all types of large files around, the 6 terabytes available in this small device are going to be perfect. Although the storage capacity is so high, the size of the device is quite reduced, hence its "book" name. You will be able to carry it around just like you do with a regular book.
The Western Digital WD My Book 6TB is compatible with the USB 3.0 protocol, so you can benefit from improved transfer rates. This way, you will spend less time waiting for files to transfer between a computer and the "book". This external hard drive is ideal if you need to do a backup of your PC, whether you have to add just regular files, or programs and even the operating system. The WD SmartWare Pro application is designed to be installed on your PC and do a backup of your files. The App runs in the background for the duration of the process and you can leave it be, or schedule tasks that should be executed at a later time.
The Acronis True Image WD Edition is also available for the external hard drive. Thanks to this, you can create a 1:1 image of your computer, which proves extremely useful in case of a HDD failure. The software also works as a secure data remover, a process that you will probably need sooner or later. Thanks to Acronis, if your system crashes, all you have to do is to fire up the portable drive and allow the app to restore your system, whenever you need it the most.
Security is of utmost importance, especially when you deal with an external hard drive. You never know who might want to snoop around, but when you work with the Western Digital WD My Book 6TB, you can be sure the WD Security App does its job. Hardware encryption is available and as long as the password you set is not provided, data remains inaccessible. All in all, you can do a lot with this Western Digital product, especially if you have a lot of data that needs to be backed up. As you never know what can happen to an aging hard drive, it is better to be safe than sorry.
