WD has outed what it claims is the world's first portable hard drive with a 2TB capacity.

The drive is part of WD's My Passport line, and sports a redesigned shell - available in a choice of five colours - and SuperSpeed USB 3.0 connectivity.

Bundled software allows you to password-protect the drive's contents and to automatically back-up your Windows PC's documents and media files to the drive when it's connected.

The 2TB versions costs £230 including VAT - $250 minus sales tax in States - and WD is also offering 500GB, 750GB and 1TB drives for less. They're available now from WD's online shop and its many retailers. ®
