eSATA 3 Gb/s - The ultra-fast eSATA interface gives you speed comparable to a state-of-the-art internal hard drive. This is the future of external storage made available today.

EMC Retrospect Express backup software - Includes Easy-to-use EMC Retrospect Express backup software for Windows and Mac.

Capacity gauge - See at a glance how much space is available on your storage system. (Works with the USB connection only).

Intelligent drive management features - The My Book external drive turns itself on and off with your computer and Safe Shutdown™ prevents the drive from being powered down until all your data has been written. (Works with the USB connection only.)

Smart design - The elegant case, iconic of a book, takes up less space on your desk, stacks horizontally, and allows two or more drives to nestle neatly together like volumes on a shelf.

Fast, high-quality hard drive - Inside the case is WD’s exceptionally fast, ultra-quiet, cool-running SATA 3 Gb/s hard drive with a 16 MB cache.
