WD Rolls Backup Software With Dropbox Integration

Irvine-based WD has launched a new software tool today, which integrates file backup on its drives with Dropbox. WD said its new WD SmartWare Pro software lets users back up files to any USB external hard drive or directly through a Dropbox account. The new software tool is aimed at users of WD's hard drives, such as its My Passport and WD Elements hard drives; the company also said the tool works with other, external USB hard drives from other manufacturers. The new software costs $19.95 for up to three computers.
