Designed with a premium aluminum enclosure, the My Book Studio drive is available in capacities of 1TB, 2TB, 3TB, and 4TB. Working seamlessly with Apple Time Machine, the drive includes WD Security, which allows users to password protect their drive along with 256-bit hardware-based encryption for added security against unauthorized access to the drive and its contents.
