Western Digital External Hard Drive

Now that we practically live our lives  in the digital world, it’s even more important that we make sure we have trustworthy backups of all our digital files. After a recent painful process of having the hard drive on my desktop PC crash (I did have a backup, but it look a long time to reconstruct my files), I’ve invested in a new external hard drive.

I’m now using the Western Digital My Passport Essential 1 TB Portable External Hard Drive for local backups of all my computers. So far (it’s only been a few months), I’m very impressed with this drive. It’s small, fast, light, easy-to-use, and reliable. I would definitely recommend the Western Digital My Passport Essential 1 TB external drive to any business traveler that wants to ensure the safety of their data before a trip. Read my full review of the Western Digital My Passport external hard drive for all the details
