Backup and Upgrade
Acronis True Image WD Edition software, available as a free download, can clone drives and backup your operating system, applications, settings and all of your data.
Performance is improved in real time by optimizing cache allocation between reads and writes. For example, if there's an overwhelming percentage of read traffic as opposed to write traffic, the drive automatically allocates more cache for read data.
Enhanced reliability features help protect the drive and the data stored on it
NoTouch Ramp Load Technology
The recording head never touches the disk media, helping to ensure less wear to the recording head and media, as well as better drive protection in transit.
WD Black hard drives are tested and recommended for use in notebook computers.
