    Extra Data Protection
    The system can be set by users to reserve half of its capacity to mirror users' data in real time using RAID technology -- in this case, the RAID 1 setting.

    Remote Access and Sharing, Simple Add-on Storage
    The unique remote-access of WD's My Book World Edition II storage appliance offers users a surprisingly simple and secure way to access and share data, photos, and music at home, in the office, and anywhere in the world -- even when their local computer is off. WD's My Book Pro Edition II and Premium Edition II are the easiest way to add extra storage to a PC or Mac(R) and offer plenty of room to back up and store precious data. Each member of the My Book family solves storage needs for a variety of consumers and their respective purposes: from simple, plug-and-play backup to high-performance additional storage for massive audio/video projects.

    Availability and Pricing
    WD's My Book family of dual-drive storage appliances with up to 2 TB are available now at select retail stores, online retailers and in the United States directly from WD at http://www.shopwd.com. Estimated pricing for the My Book Dual-drive storage appliances with 2 TB capacity ranges from $749 USD to $799 USD depending upon model.
