4 interface options for speedy information transfer with auto backup and more.
Speed is what you need for video editing, big design projects, or managing photo shoots, and that's what the My Book Studio Edition external hard drive delivers with FireWire 800 and eSATA connectivity. With its automatic backup capability, your creative masterpieces will be backed up the minute you save them.
Installation is a snap because you don't really install this hard drive, you just plug it in and it's ready to use. There is no CD to install, as the included software loads from the drive the first time you plug it in.
The My Book Studio Edition features automatic back up, allowing you to back up important projects to multiple destinations including file servers, portable drives, and your My Book all at once. Synchronize project files to keep them current and secure. Set it and forget it. Every time you save a change it's automatically backed up.
This powerful quad interface features USB 2.0 for convenience and compatibility among multiple computers. It also has FireWire 400 and 800 for high-performance interfaces that are perfect for Macintosh computers.
Lastly, it has an ultra-fast 3GB/s eSATA interface which gives you speed comparable to a state-of-the-art internal drive.
Though this hard drive is formatted for Macintosh and set up with HFS+ Journaled formatting for complete Macintosh compatibility this My Book can be easily reformatted for Windows 2000/XP/Vista.
For all the information it can hold, the Studio Edition takes up no more space than a paperback book. Collect two or more hard drives and they nest neatly together like volumes on a shelf. Speaking of capacity, you can see at a glance how much space is available on your drive when using the USB and FireWire connection.
It's also an environmentally-friendly drive, designed to save power by going into standby mode after 10 minutes of inactivity. When you're ready to use it, My Book wakes up automatically. The SmartPower feature allows the drive to turn on and off with your computer and Safe Shutdown prevents the drive from being powered down until all your data has been written. (Works with the USB and FireWire connections only.) No matter how long it's been on, the My Book enclosure's heat dissipating design with Morse Code prevents heat buildup which is a notorious data killer.
