What can I store on this hard drive?
This hard drive has 3TB (3,000GB) of storage, so you have plenty of space for your files. You can store up to 23.25 hours of 4K video at 30 fps, 99 hours of 1080p video at 30 fps, 750 two-hour DVD films, 960,000 digital photos or 49,800 hours of digital music.

What difference does USB 3.0 make?
USB 3.0, when plugged into a USB 3.0 socket, can transfer data up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0. However, this doesn’t mean you can’t use it with USB 2.0. This hard drive is backwards compatible, meaning you are able to use it with USB 2.0, without the need to update your computer. This means you spend less time waiting to ensure your documents, pictures and videos are safely stored on your external hard drive.

Does this come with WD Smartware installed?

Asked by: Hoolz
This should be pre installed, but if you have a WD external drive that does not have WD SmartWare installed, or even a third party external USB drive, you can download the software and quickly begin protecting your important files.
