Manufacturer's Description

New USB cables
WD has increased the retention force specification on all our Micro USB cables and we are offering free replacement cables to consumers that have reported an issue via customer service.

Double-safe backup and storage for all your computers
With the double protection of two mirrored drives, My Book World Edition II is the safest place to create an automatic continuous back up of the files on all the computers in your network, and is compatible with both Mac and Windows files. You can store all your digital media in one central location so everyone can securely access it, even remotely, and stream movies and music anywhere in your home.

Keeping your data double-safe
In just a few simple steps, you can set up automatic and continuous back up for all the computers on your network. But wait, there's more... there are two drives in this system and we've set them up to mirror each other using RAID technology. The system automatically and continuously maintains a second copy of your data for double safe data protection - if one drive in this two-drive system ever fails, the system continues to run and your data is safe. How's that for peace of mind?

Keep the files on your laptop backed up without even thinking about it
You’ve been out at the coffee shop writing your novel and now you’re home and you know you should back up your work. Sigh. But, with the My Book World Edition II drive it’s no longer a chore, in fact, it’s easy. Just turn on your laptop and log into the home network. That’s it. Your files will be backed up automatically. It’s not hard to set it up, and once you’re done it’s always automatic and you can stop thinking about it.

Play music and video files on your TV
Your epic trip-to-Africa movie is here on the computer in the den. Your big, beautiful new plasma TV is there in the family room. How do you get that movie from here to there? My Book World Edition II can be your home's central media hub. From it you can stream photos, music, and videos to your home entertainment centre - all you need is the My Book World Edition II drive and a digital media adapter or a game console like an Xbox 360 or Playstation 3, and your masterpiece is there on the big screen.

Play all your iTunes music on any computer in the house
You use iTunes to manage your music and so does the rest of the family, so there are music files on all of your family’s computers. With the My Book World Edition II drive, you can put all of that music in one place so that everyone can listen. Store all your family’s iTunes music on the drive, find the drive on any computer on the network, open iTunes, and, ta-da, there’s the music.

Get to your data no matter where you are
Imagine you’re out of town, interviewing for a new job. You need a new copy of your CV and it’s only on your home computer…which is turned off. Yikes. But you’re OK, because you stored the resume on your My Book World Edition II drive. The drive is always on, and you can get to it through the Internet, any time, anywhere. Excellent! Now you can knock ‘em dead in the interview.

Automatic and continuous backup for all the computers on your network
Now you can easily back up data from all your home computers with the included continuous backup software. Set it and forget it; every time you save something it's instantly and automatically backed up. Plus, with simple file recovery, you can restore lost, damaged or older files back to their original location with a couple of clicks. Backup files are stored in the same file structure that you originally saved them, so it’s easy and intuitive to find files.



Stream movies and music to your TV
and access your data anytime, anywhere.

Stream digital media anywhere in your home
With a built-in media server for streaming music, photos and movies to any DLNA certified multimedia device such as Playstation 3, Xbox 360, wireless digital picture frames and connected audio receivers (DLNA 1.5 and UPnP certified) you can also centralise your music collection and stream to a Mac or Windows PC using iTunes software. My Book World Edition II even uses cutting-edge technologies to deliver high performance read and write speeds that are ideal for the most demanding users, giving you best-in-class performance. Want to upgrade a drive? Simply open the case and replace the existing drive - no screwdriver needed.

Easy to set up, easy to find on your network
Set up is a snap with the My Book World Edition II; in just a few minutes you’re up and running. Mac and Windows Vista computers will automatically find your My Book drive in seconds, and our simple discovery software makes it easy to find the drive with Windows XP systems. MioNet remote access technology also makes it easy for you to securely share photos and documents with friends and family, while the USB 2.0 utility port allows you to turn any USB drive into an instant network drive or extra capacity for your World Edition II.

Cooler, quieter and eco-friendly
Equipped with WD drives using WD GreenPower technology, this system consumes significantly less power and delivers performance on par with power hungry network storage devices using 7200 RPM hard drives. You can see at a glance how much space is available on your drive via the capacity gauge, and thanks to high-speed data transfer with Gigabit Ethernet, your Gigabit networking and transfer rates are up to five to six times faster than other standard 10/100 Ethernet network storage systems (this performance is comparable to USB 2.0 direct-attached storage. Your results will vary based on the file size and format, settings, features, software and other factors).

More about RAID
RAID is a high-tech acronym for Redundant Array of Independent Disks. The acronym is not important, but what is important is that the inclusion of RAID technology in WD's dual-drive external storage systems make them very powerful storage products.



RAID mirroring technology automatically
and continuously duplicates your data.
View larger.

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 you can 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.

There are two reasons you might want a RAID system of drives:
1. You need tons of storage space and you need it to be fast (RAID 0)
2. You want to instantaneously and automatically backup your data (RAID 1)

Which RAID mode should I use?

1. Speed (RAID 0)
Set in high-performance mode (also called striped mode or RAID 0) the storage system gives you the power you need when you're completing tasks such as designing huge graphics for which you need a lightning-fast Photoshop scratch space, or for when you're recording large DV files and need to maintain clean audio performance. You might also be editing DV or HD video and want a smooth work flow with no dropped frames, be rendering complex 3D objects or special effects, performing disk-intensive database operations or simply be driven to be the first geek on your block with a computer so fast it blows your socks off.

But why is RAID 0 so fast? Well, it's a bit complicated, but suffice it to say that two heads, or in this case, drives, are better than one. Picture two hoses filling a bucket at the same time or two men bailing a boat and you can understand why two drives striped are faster than one. Data is saved (striped) across both drives and accessed in parallel by both drives so you get higher data transfer rates on large data accesses and higher input/output rates on small data accesses.

2. Data protection (RAID 1)
Set the system to data protection mode (also know as mirrored mode or RAID 1) and the data is duplicated onto one of the drives providing two copies of all the data. This reduces your capacity to the size of a single disk. But do I want that kind of redundancy? Well, it's your data, your family pictures, your movie of baby's first steps, your first novel. Is it important? You decide. If it is, then RAID mirroring if for you.
