The original

WD Blue drives are designed and manufactured with the proven technology found in WD’s original award-winning desktop and mobile hard drives.

NoTouch™ ramp load technology

The recording head never touches the disk media ensuring significantly less wear to the recording head and media as well as better drive protection in transit.

Upgrading your drive is easy

Acronis® True Image™ WD Edition Software, available as a free download on the WD Support site, enables you to copy all your data to a new drive so you don't have to reinstall your operating system to get all the benefits of a new drive. (wdc.com)
