The Western Digital My Book for Mac 2nd-gen is an environmentally friendly, high capacity, and ultra-portable external hard drive engineered specifically for Macintosh desktop or laptop systems. It requires no installation, as the unit’s plug-n-play capacity automatically detects and configures itself to any Macintosh system, especially the Apple TimeMachine. Included also is an illuminated capacity gauge that shows the approximate amount of space currently available on the drive. Pivotal to the My Book for Mac is its WD SmartWare software, which presents a visual control center where users can monitor, back-up, and secure all their data. In fact, the software allows for both password protection AND 256-bit hardware-based encryption.
