Personal Cloud Storage
My Book Live Duo
Your media and files on your own personal cloud.
Create your own personal cloud, without the monthly fees and mysterious location of your data. Store your media and files on the drive and access them securely over the Internet.

Or, use WD's mobile apps for easy access with your tablet or smartphone. It's like having up to 6 TB terabytes of extra storage for your mobile device.

Double-safe backup with RAID 1 technology.

Set this system to data protection mode (also known as mirrored mode or RAID 1) and the capacity is divided in half. Half of the capacity is used to store your data and half is used for a second copy. In the unlikely event that one drive fails, your data is protected because it's duplicated on the other drive.


Maximum storage capacity with drive spanning.

Out of the box, this two-drive system combines both drives into one big volume so they act like one drive for maximum capacity.

Complete out-of-the-box solution.

My Book Live Duo comes complete with two desktop hard drives offering high-capacity, low power consumption, and cool, quiet operation. The drives are factory tested within the enclosure for optimized performance and WD quality you can count on.

Shared storage for all your computers.

The perfect dual-drive solution for centralizing and sharing data on your wired or wireless network. Connect the My Book Live Duo to your wireless router to share and access files with any PC or Mac computer on your network.

Speed without compromise.

Built with an 800 MHz CPU for maximum performance to power all your applications from streaming to remote access. Designed around the most recent advances in Ethernet chip technology, this product delivers best-in-class read speeds faster than traditional USB 2.0 drives.

Now streaming to your HDTV.

Watch your daughter's birthday party video or show off your vacation slideshow on your TV. The built-in media server streams music, photos and movies to any DLNA-certified multimedia device such as a WD TV Live network media player, Blu-ray Disc player, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and connected TV. DLNA 1.5 & UPnP certified.

Automatic, wireless backup for all your computers.
Protect your precious memories and wirelessly back up all the PC and Mac computers on your network to one reliable location. Windows users can use the included WD SmartWare software and every time you save something, it's instantly backed up. Mac users can utilize all the features of Apple Time Machine backup software to protect their data.
Serve up your music with iTunes.
The drive includes iTunes server support so you can centralize your music and stream it any Mac or PC with iTunes.

Easy to set up, easy to find on your network.
