3TB WD Blue 3.5" HDD Drive: Build It In Blue
Improves PC Performance
Pair a larger capacity drive with an SSD to give your desktop a performance and storage boost. The SSD maximizes speed of data access, while the WD Blue drive stores up to 6 TB of movies, games, files, applications and more.
Upgrade and Backup with Ease
WD hard drives come with free access to WD Acronis True Image. Our downloadable software quickly copies all your existing data to your new drive; without reinstalling your operating system. Backup and restore functions make it easy to save and retrieve your personal data.
Plan for the Future
With better technology comes bigger storage needs. Digital cameras that record ultra-high definition 4K videos at 30 frames per second require a ton of storage. Handling all that media is a snap for large WD Blue drives like this one.

- As used for storage capacity, one megabyte (MB) = one million bytes, one gigabyte (GB) = one billion bytes, and one terabyte (TB) = one trillion bytes. Total accessible capacity varies depending on operating environment. As used for buffer or cache, one megabyte (MB) = 1,048,576 bytes. As used for transfer rate or interface, megabyte per second (MB/s) = one million bytes per second, and gigabit per second (Gb/s) = one billion bits per second.
