Performance
My Book Duo’s dual-drive design offers superior performance with USB 3.0 connection to enable transfer speeds up to 290 MB/s. Optimized for small RAID environments, the integrated WD Red hard drives with true hardware RAID increase performance and reduce data bottlenecks. Preconfigured in RAID (Redundant Array of Independent Disks) 0 for maximum performance and capacity, My Book Duo offers users the flexibility to take advantage of mirror mode (RAID 1) for ultimate data protection or use JBOD configuration to use the drives individually. In mirror mode (RAID 1) the drives continuously maintains a second copy of all digital files for real-time data backup2. One drive is used to store the user’s data while the second drive is used for a duplicate copy. In the unlikely event that one drive fails, all of the user’s data is still available from the other drive.

Complete Backup Protection
Software available on My Book Duo offers various forms of data protection with local, cloud and system-level backup through WD SmartWare Pro backup software and Acronis True Image software WD Edition. The automatic and continuous settings within WD SmartWare Pro make file and folder backups quick and easy. My Book Duo offers multiple data protection and access benefits to Dropbox account users. Dropbox data can be securely backed up to the local hard drive and integrated cloud backup to Dropbox accounts with WD Smartware Pro to provide safe, offsite storage of critical files – creating an extra layer of protection. Additionally, with My Book Duo, users can then access information saved in the cloud with Dropbox Web access.
