Performance that keeps up with your creativity

Transfer a full-length HD movie in under 30 seconds or thousands of MP3 songs in mere minutes. Thunderbolt I/O technology gives you two channels on the same connector with 10 Gb/s of throughput in both directions. Data moves to and from drives up to 20 times faster than with USB 2.0 and up to 12 times faster than with FireWire 800, providing more than enough bandwidth to daisy-chain multiple high-speed drives without using a hub or switch.

The bandwidth you need for maximum data throughput

Connect your Thunderbolt technology-enabled external hard drives, media players, HD displays, media capture and editing systems through a Thunderbolt chain while maintaining maximum throughput. Then enjoy nearly unlimited flexibility and performance in your creative life.

User-configurable RAID for Speed or Double-safe Data Protection

With the Western Digital My Book Thunderbolt Duo, you can select the RAID mode that's right for you. Choose RAID 0 (striping) for the performance you need when designing or editing graphic-intensive media files. When the drive is set to RAID 1 (mirroring) it provides double-safe data protection by automatically generating a duplicate copy of your data. Set the drive to JBOD (Just a Bunch Of Disks) to use as two individual drives and select between HFS+J or ExFAT per disk. Ideal for running Windows OS on a Mac.

About RAID

RAID is an acronym for Redundant Array of Independent Disks. With RAID enabled on a storage system you can connect two or more drives in the system so that they act like one big fast drive or set them up so that one drive in the system is used to automatically and instantaneously duplicate (or mirror) your data for real-time backup.

Speed (RAID 0)
You can quickly access and replace the drives in the WD My Book Thunderbolt Duo without the need for any screwdrivers.
You can quickly access and replace the drives in the WD My Book Thunderbolt Duo without the need for any screwdrivers.

Set in high-performance mode (also called striped mode or RAID 0) the storage system gives you the power you need when you're:

  • Designing huge graphics and need a lightning-fast Photoshop scratch space.
  • Editing DV or HD video and want a smooth work flow with no dropped frames
Data protection (RAID 1)

Set the system to data protection mode (also known as mirrored mode or RAID 1) and the capacity is divided in half. Half of the capacity is used to store your data and half is used for a duplicate copy. If one drive goes down your data is protected because it's duplicated.

High-capacity storage

My Book Thunderbolt Duo, dual-drive storage system featuring revolutionary Thunderbolt technology, sets new standards for data transfer speeds and workflow flexibility in an affordable, high-capacity storage system. Choose between two available large capacity options - 4TB or 6TB.

User-serviceable

Want to upgrade a drive? Simply open the case and replace the existing drive – no screwdriver needed.
