If you’ve never felt the burning feeling of regret that comes with realizing you never backed up your data, you’re one of the lucky ones. We live in a world where basically 99% of our valued data is stored on a phone, tablet, or desktop. Even though we know this, often times we forget the importance of backing up our treasured info in case of emergency — AKA the terrible tragedy that is your computer crashing.  Without backup, all of your precious photos, files, and more that you’ve collected and stored for months or even years are gone. Poof. Just like that. 

*Shudder*

Luckily, there are steps you can take to avoid this kind of catastrophe, like getting a WD My Passport  Portable External Hard Drive — now 38% off on Amazon. 

The WD My Passport Portable External Hard Drive makes backing up your data extremely easy. To set it up, you just connect the USB cable to the My Passport and your Windows PC. (You can also use it for a Mac, but you’ll need to reformat it first.) Then load the WD Apps Setup to install the software, and boom. Start loading all of your photos, music, and whatnot onto the drive. And yes, we mean all of it. This thing holds up to 4TB of data. Which, for those who don’t know, is a shit ton of data. 

The My Passport will also automatically back up, so you don’t have to constantly remember to. You can even set it to your schedule by picking the time and frequency that it backs up. 

And in the event that you should lose your My Passport? Not to worry. It comes with a built-in 256-bit AES hardware encryption with WD Security software that will keep all of your data totally private if it should end up in someone else’s hands. You can even add a “return if found” message as the password prompt, so whoever finds it knows where it belongs. 

The My Passport comes in six different vibrant colors, so store in style, friends. 

But most importantly, the My Passport is now a full $60 off its listing price. (If you were waiting for a sign that you should starting backing up your data, this is it.) 

Back up now (for less) and thank us later. Get the WD 4TB My Passport Hard Drive for a cool $99 here.
