WD Backup

What is Backup?

Backup is simply keeping a copy of your data in a separate location, like an external hard drive or the cloud. Whether you need to protect a single document, or system-level backup for your entire PC, you'll have a copy to quickly recover.

File-system backup vs. system-level backup

WD Backup software provides file-system backup, so you can select the specific files and folders you want copied to your My Book. With Acronis True Image software, you'll have system-level backup to create a clone of your entire computer, saving not only your files, but your operating system and installed programs as well.

Back up easier than ever!

With a few clicks you're able to set your own schedule and backup specific folders automatically with WD Backup.
