Product Expert HDD external hard drives

The WD My Book Duo 8TB is an external storage device for the desks of movie fans and backup keepers. With the 2 integrated WD Red drives, you can run a RAID setup. This allows the drives to work together and make copies of each other, so you can save all your movies, series, and photos, or even entire system backups twice as safely. Connect the drive via the USB-C port or via one of the 2 USB-A ports. If you're not using one of the USB ports left, you can also use the WD My Book Duo as a hub to connect an extra device. Don't worry about internet threats, such as hackers or viruses, because the device protects your files with 256-bit AES encryption. For added privacy, create a password to access your files.
