WD, a provider of products and services that collect, manage and use digital information, has announced the availability of its new 320 GB WD Passport portable drives.
The company claimed that WD Passport portable drives have become popular worldwide for their plug-and-play capability, stylish and ultra-portable design.
WD also said that the WD Sync software allows consumers to take desktop content with them by simplifying the synchronization of essential personal files and Microsoft Outlook data on a PC. Even if the drive is misplaced, the data is protected with 128-bit encryption. Google software on the drive allows users to quickly locate files with the Google Desktop Search tool, manage photos with Picasa photo organizer software and simplify web searches with the Google Toolbar search bar.
Jim Welsh, vice president and general manager of WD’s branded products group, said: The need for travel-friendly storage devices continues to be an area that is growing immensely with the advent of rich media content generated by consumers.
