Western Digital Corp today announced that its WD Passport(TM) Portable and WD Passport Pocket USB Drives are now shipping with software that simplifies the synchronization of essential personal files and Microsoft Outlook(R) data on a Macintosh(R) computer or PC with the portable storage devices.
WD Sync synchronization and encryption software secures owners’ data with 128-bit encryption plus password protection ensuring that personal files and Outlook data remain on the WD Passport Portable Drive or WD Passport Pocket Drive and are not copied to any computers that owners use other than their primary ones. Owners of WD Passport Portable and WD Passport Pocket models sold previously without the WD Sync software now can download the software for free from WD’s Web site: www.wdc.com/passportsoftware
WD Passport Portable and WD Passport Pocket USB Drives are powered by the USB bus with no need for a separate power supply (for most systems). Combined with the easy-to-set-up, customizable WD Sync software, the two devices are easy to use anywhere — simply plug in and store. WD Passport Portable USB Drives are offered in capacities of 60, 80 and 120 GB while the USB 2.0 WD Passport Pocket Drives, stores up to 6 GB of digital content.
