Can I back up my files using this hard drive?
Included with the WD My Passport is the WD back up software, which protects your files against getting lost. You can manually run the software or create a schedule to automatically create a backup of your important files.

How secure are these portable hard drives?
WD security ensures that all files saved to the WD My Passport are safe and secure from prying eyes. Create a personalised password unique to you and be safe in the knowledge that your files are protected with 256-bit hardware encryption. Should you misplace your drive somewhere, a ‘return if found’ prompt can be set to display a customised message and help the drive get back to you.

Easy to use portable storage
The WD My Passport Portable USB 3.0 External Hard Drive uses a driver-free installation and works instantly on computers running Windows 7, 8 and 10. Simply connect the drive using the USB 3.0 connection and begin transferring files straight away. The drive can also be used with a USB 2.0 connection but at a reduced speed.

The WD My Passport can also be used with Mac operating systems, though a format will be required.

Can I backup 2 networked PCs automatically to this drive?

Asked by: Nick
No, as this is a USB drive you would be better off looking into the WD my cloud http://www.maplin.co.uk/p/wd-2tb-my-cloud-personal-cloud-storage-nas-drive-a17lx
