Western Digital, a leading manufacturer of hard drives, has updated its software for external hard drives as well as mobile devices. From now on, WD's external drives will be able to upload certain data to Dropbox cloud storage service and users of WD 2go app for smartphones and tablets will be able to access it and/or share with other people using Dropbox.

“By combining access to Dropbox and personal cloud storage into a single intuitive mobile app, WD is empowering consumers with the flexibility and control of anytime, any-device management of their growing libraries of digital content,” said Jim Welsh, executive vice president for WD's branded products and consumer electronics groups.

WD’s personal cloud products provide shared storage on the home network, letting customers centralize their important documents, photos, videos and music in one place as well as automatically backup all the computers in their home. With the WD 2go app customers can access and share that content from outside the home on their mobile devices.

The new version of WD 2go lets customers move, copy and share content between their mobile device, their Dropbox and their WD personal cloud products, such as My Book Live, My Book Live Duo and My Net N900 central HD router with storage. For example, if a user has a small number of photos they want to share with their friends, they can copy them from their personal cloud into their Dropbox using the WD 2go app. But if they have a very large number of photos, or files that are too big for their Dropbox, they can use WD 2go to send a secure link to the files via email.

WD 2go is available for Apple iPad, iPhone, iPod touch or Google Android-based mobile devices.
