Western Digital Intros SmartWare Pro Backup Software With Dropbox Integration

In a way, it's a wonder that Dropbox is still an independent company. But as long as it is, it might as well bulk up on partnerships. Western Digital is the latest friend, with WD SmartWare Pro launching with Dropbox integration. It's a new software tool that enables users to back up files to any USB external HDD or to the cloud using their Dropbox. Additionally, in the event that a file is deleted, lost, or a previous version of a file is needed, WD SmartWare Pro makes it easy to quickly restore and retrieve backed-up data.


Additionally, in the event that a file is deleted, lost, or a previous version of a file is needed, WD SmartWare Pro makes it easy to quickly restore and retrieve backed-up data. The software has two easy-to-use backup settings, allowing customers to set up their preferred file backup process. The "continuous backup" setting sets up an automatic, continuous backup that works quietly in the background so that whenever a customer adds or changes a file it is instantly backed up on the external drive. The "scheduled backup" setting allows customers to set up a regular pre-programmed backup schedule, including an hourly, daily or monthly setting for easy backup to their external drive or Dropbox.

WD SmartWare Pro is currently available as a free 30-day trial at www.wdstore.com. After the 30-day trial a standard license, valid for use with up to three computers, is available for a special promotional price of $19.95 US. A premium license, valid for use with up to ten computers, is available for a special promotional price of $39.95 US. Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) is $29.95 US for the standard license and $49.95 US for the premium license.

Whattttt. Seems like an interesting idea. And the license costs are very reasonable.

Might have to give this one a try. Although, the idea of the passport is kind of redundant then isn't it?

Well I'm pretty sure the idea is redundancy just in case something does happen you have an "extra" backup depending on how use the service. Price seems right but I am still leery of putting a backup of my stuff on a cloud service. I use an old laptop 2.5" to backup my computer so its just sitting there.
