WD SmartWare
 
Back up your way

WD SmartWare Pro offers options for how, when and where you back up your files.
 
How?

Select File and folder or Category backup. File and Folder backup lets you choose the files and folders that you want to protect with your chosen backup mode.
When?

Choose from automatic, continuous backup or scheduled backup. Automatic, continuous backup runs quietly in the background and backs up your files every time you add or change and save a file. With scheduled backup, you choose the day, time and frequency of your backups.
 
 
Where?

WD SmartWare Pro lets you back up to your local external hard drive or to the cloud using your Dropbox* account. For double-safe protection, you can also back up the files in your Dropbox account to your local external hard drive.
Back up to any external USB drive

With WD SmartWare Pro, you can back up your computer to any external hard drive whether that drive is from WD or from a third party.
 
 
Dropbox account required for cloud backup. Cloud services may be changed, terminated or interrupted at any time and may vary by country.
 
 
It's easy to bring back lost files.

If you ever accidentally delete an important file or need to get an earlier version of a file, WD SmartWare Pro helps you retrieve the file in seconds with the easy-to-use retrieve interface. WD SmartWare Pro maintains the file structure that you have set up on your computer so it's easy to locate the file once you have retrieved it.
 
 
Visual interface shows backup progress

WD SmartWare Pro features a visual interface with gauges that display how much data you have to be backed up in each category. And as your backup progresses the gauges change color, showing you the backup as it happens.
 
 
You've taken the time to create it or capture it – everything that matters to you, from financial to sentimental. But you're just one system error, one spilled latte, one stolen backpack away from losing it all.
 
If it matters to you, make a second copy!
 
Like a jet plane with more than one engine you need a backup. If your files are backed up and an important file is lost, you can relax because you have a copy.
 
 
Make it automatic. Set it and forget it.
 
You don't have to think about backup everyday if you use automatic backup software that does the work for you.
 
WD offers WD SmartWare Pro automatic backup software that makes it easy to back up your important files on your schedule. With WD SmartWare Pro you can select one or both of the following two options:
 
  • Automatic, continuous backup to back up files as soon as they are added or changed and saved
  • Scheduled backup that allows you to pick the time, day and frequency that you back up your files.
 
Be selective
 
Protect the files you create yourself whether they are text documents, e-mail messages, pictures, music, videos or game saves. If you made them, you want to save them and keep them nearby.
 
You don't have to back up your entire system a time consuming task that duplicates the issues you've built up over time on your hard drive. If your system fails, use the original copies of your software programs and reinstall your operating system to get a fresh start.
 
 
Upgrade to WD SmartWare Pro!

Upgrade to WD SmartWare Pro for even more backup options. WD SmartWare Pro allows users to back up files to their Dropbox account or even to a non-WD external hard drive.
 
 
Back up to an external drive.
 
You can back up to CDs or DVDs, but this is a slow, manual process. And contrary to popular belief, most CDs and DVDs are not permanent. Low-priced CDRs may not be readable in as few as two years and thumb drives are small, lower capacities, and easy to lose.

The best backup medium is an external hard drive. It takes stacks of CDs or DVDs and handfuls of thumb drives to back up all the data that could be stored on a single external hard drive. WD SmartWare Pro makes it easy to back up to an external hard drive. High-capacity external drives are fast and allow you to keep all your backed up data in one place. For extra safety, get a two-drive external storage system and dedicate half the capacity for mirroring to automatically and instantaneously back up your backup every time. WD's external hard drives are sleek, stylish, made for your grab-and-go lifestyle and most come with our easy-to-use backup software... so let WD be your backup plan!
