WD for Windows 8
If you own a Western Digital external hard drive, you probably often access it either looking for a certain file or to backup up a new document or folder. WD for Windows 8 can help you complete these tasks while also providing you with an intuitive graphic interface.
However, you will be able to enjoy the functions of this application only if you are running Windows 8 or 8.1 on your computer, as it is not compatible with earlier operating systems.
Once you run WD for Windows 8, it will automatically start searching for a compatible device and will reveal its contents once it detects it, thus offering you access to your files without needing to open another app or window.
In addition to presenting your files in a neatly organized manner (multimedia files are grouped together so you can locate them easier), the application can also help you preview the images you store on your WD HDD, as thumbnails are instantly created for each of them. This way, you can select the items you need, without worrying that you are copying the wrong ones.
Similarly, you can playback and pause videos, as well as adjust their volume as you see fit. You can also explore your audio albums, preview their cover arts and listen to the tracks you like best.
All in all, WD for Windows 8 can prove a handy application for all those who backup their valuable files on a Western Digital external HDD and who want to save time when managing these items. They can preview each file, be it image, video or audio track, before copying it to a PC location or to another external device.
