Western Digital launched My Passport HDD

As per the recent research conducted by Western Digital in November 2019, it is clear that in India, one out of four PC users has lost their content or stored data. The research also states that 84% of the PC users blamed that the reason for lost data is either a virus attack, system crash, or a forgotten password.

Here are the few major highlights of the research report:

  1. 42% of the respondents cited the paucity of time and the tediousness of the data backup process as the key deterrents for backing up their content.
  2. 24% of females and 18% of the 36-45 age group backup their data.

However, looking after this sort of consumer behavior, the Western Digital, a leader in data infrastructure, has introduced its newest, My Passport™, its slimmest 5TB** portable hard drive, in the Indian market.
