Product Expert HDD external hard drives

The WD My Book Duo 16TB is an external desktop storage device for creative professionals and heavy media users. The 2 integrated WD Red drives were made specifically for RAID setups, in which the two drives automatically back each other up to prevent data loss. This helps you save your projects, video files, photo libraries, or system copies extra safely. You can connect the drive with the USB-C port or the 2 USB-A ports. You can even use the WD My Book Duo as a USB hub, if you have one USB port left. Thanks to the 256-bit AES encryption, the WD My Book Duo is protected against viruses or other internet attacks. You can also set up a password for secure access to your files.
