WD Launches Pink Passport Drives in Support of the National Breast Cancer Foundation

WD today announced that the company is a proud sponsor of the National Breast Cancer Foundation (nationalbreastcancer.org) with the introduction of its new pink WD Passport Portable Drives. Available now in the U.S. from WD's online store (shopwd.com) and expected next month at Best Buy stores, the new pink-colored WD Passport Portable Drive features a whopping one-quarter terabyte capacity. To aid in the fight against breast cancer, WD is making a donation to the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NCBF).

"WD recognizes the responsibility to respond to the needs of the communities in which we operate," said John Coyne, CEO and president of WD. "By partnering with the NBCF, WD has the opportunity to the contribute to the needs of our community through the sales of our pink WD Passport drives."

WD Passport Portable Drives have become popular worldwide for their plug-and-play capability, stylish and ultra-portable design. At less than five ounces, this lightweight drive fits neatly in a pocket or backpack and is the perfect gadget to back up today's increasingly large files from digital pictures, HD (high definition) video and music.

WD Sync software allows consumers to take desktop content with them by simplifying the synchronization of personal files including Microsoft Outlook data on a PC. Should owners misplace the drive, they know their data is protected with 128-bit encryption. Google software allows users to quickly locate files with the Google Desktop Search search tool, manage photos with Picasa photo organizer software and simplify Web searches with the Google Toolbar search bar.
