Western Digital’s Latest Hard Drive Solutions

 

December 2011, Singapore – Backing up your hard drive frequently should be practised by everyone.  Personally, I’ve experienced the lost of important photos, videos and emails when my laptop’s hard disk crashed previously.  Trust me. It was very painful!!

Recently, I came across a couple of portable and desktop hard drive solutions from Western Digital.  In October, Western Digital launched it’s latest generation of My Passport portable hard drives for Mac Computers and Apple Time Machine and My Passport Studio.  It also launched a new personal cloud hard drive.
