Backing up my life on the WD My Passport Ultra

You’d think that working in administration I would have everything sorted when it comes to backing up my documents and most importantly my photos.  This is where I hang my head in shame as I admit that I didn’t until recently have any form of backup in case my computer went wrong.  In fact, it was only when I had used up all the hard drive space on my laptop that I realised I needed to do something. 

WD My Passport Ultra

WD My Passport Ultra

The WD My Passport Ultra device can help if you run out of storage on your phone, laptop or tablet, we all know how quickly we run out of that!  As well backing up those precious memories, which parents now value the memories on their smartphone at a whooping £3,000. And with a third of us sharing pictures of our little one’s with friends and family weekly, our mobile content library – and the value we place on it – is only going to increase as our children grow.

Available in a five different colours and 1TB, 2TB and 3TB storage sizes it is sure to be there when you need to back up your life and to preserve those memories.

Boo Roo and Tigger Too’s thoughts…

The plug and play WD My Passport Ultra means that I didn’t have to waste time installing software or formatting it before use.  I’ve been using the 1TB capacity WD My Passport Ultra and it has been more than enough for all my family photos and blogging files.  I’ve moved all the files I don’t need to access at the touch of a button, however, as the WD My Passport Ultra is so small (less than the size of your hand) it is easy to carry in my laptop bag and pop in whenever I need to access different files.

    I’d backup my programs on the pc – as many have specific licences and some of the cd’s are scratched.

    Wow this looks brilliant, I bought a Seagate Cloud drive and I hate it, it doesn’t work with Windows 10 so I can’t use it with my laptop. I have to transfer items I want secure from my laptop to my PC and then back-up my PC, it’s tedious and was a huge waste of £150 🙁

  8. May 21, 2016 / 9:06 pm
