Western Digital's best-selling My Book external drive is an elegant, high-capacity storage solution for all the chapters of your digital life. The latest edition, the Western Digital WDBAAF0015HBK My Book Essential, now features visual, easy-to-use, automatic, continuous backup software and drive lock security protection - giving you beauty, brains, and simplicity together.

Key Features

  • WD SmartWare software: A visual control centre with a single screen view of all your data. From it you can back up, retrieve, and secure your files.
  • Password protection: An extra level of security with password protection and 256-bit hardware-based encryption.
  • Smaller, sleeker, more streamlined design: We've made these award-winning drives even smaller, sleeker, and more elegant. As always, the book-like shaped Western Digital My Book Essential Hard Drive WDBAAF0015HBK takes up minimal space on your desk and allows two or more My Book drives to nestle neatly together like volumes on a shelf.
  • See your backup as it happens: Seeing is believing. Visual backup displays your content in categories and shows the progress of your backup.
  • Protect your data automatically: Relax, your data is secure. Automatic, continuous backup will instantly make a second copy whenever you add or change a file.
  • Bring back lost files effortlessly: Retrieve your valuable data to its original location whether you've lost all your data or just overwritten an important file.
  • Take control: Customise your backup, set drive security, run diagnostics, manage the power settings, and more from the WD SmartWare control center.
  • Drive lock: Gain peace of mind knowing that your data is protected from unauthorised access or theft with password protection and 256-bit hardware-based encryption.
  • Illuminated capacity gauge: See at a glance how much space is available on your Western Digital My Book Essential WDBAAF0015HBK-UESN.
  • USB 2.0 interface: A simple connection that offers convenience and compatibility among multiple computers.
  • Power miser: My Book external drives are designed to save energy. WD GreenPower Technology lowers internal drive power consumption by up to 30%, a sleep mode reduces power during idle times, and a power-saving feature turns the drive on and off with your computer.
