WD Releases Windows 8 App


Western Digital supports new storage features in Windows 8 with the release of an app for the new Windows user interface that allows users to discover and backup digital media and files.

The WD app for Windows 8 automatically discovers digital content on connected WD direct attached storage solutions and showcases those photos, videos and music on a live tile on the Start screen. Within the app, users can find and enjoy their digital content as well as share their media via email and social media sites with the Share charm. Windows 8 automatically installs the WD app for certified WD products or it can be downloaded from the Windows Store.

Additionally, WD products simplify the process of computer backup through support of the new File History feature within Windows 8. File History is a file backup application that makes it easy to schedule automatic backups to any hard drive attached to the computer or on the network. This simplified process of performing automatic, periodical back up of personal files stored in Libraries, Desktop, Favorites, and Contacts folders.

WD drives also support the new Windows 8 Storage Spaces feature, which allows users to make multiple external hard drives appear as a single storage volume. Storage Spaces can be used in conjunction with File History to create redundant backups for enhanced security.
