My Book Studio II Edition

The speed you need - Lightning-fast FireWire® 800 combined with RAID 0 (Striped) yields the speed you need for smooth video editing, rendering complex 3D objects or special effects and saving huge blocks of data in record time.

GreenPower technology logo Cooler, quieter, eco-friendlier - Designed to use only WD hard drives with GreenPower Technology™, this system uses about 30% less energy* than standard systems and runs quietly because it doesn't need a fan.
(* Based on comparison between a 1 TB dual-drive system using 7200 RPM drives and a 1 TB dual-drive system using WD hard drives with GreenPower Technology™.)

Formatted for Mac® - Compatible with Apple's Time Machine™. Includes software and instructions for reformatting to Windows®. The 4 TB version works with Windows® Vista and Windows® 7 only. Windows XP does not support hard drives above with capacities above 2 TB.

My Book Studio II Edition

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

Automatic backup software - Back up important projects to multiple destinations including file servers, portable drives and My Book. Set it and forget it; every time you save a change it's automatically backed up.

Capacity gauge - See at a glance how much space is available on your storage system. Intelligent drive management features - Automatic power-up, Safe Shutdown™, and LED status and activity lights make this storage system especially easy to use. (Works with USB and FireWire connections only.)
