WD Blue - PC Hard Drives

Boost your PC storage with WD Blue drives; the brand designed just for desktop and all-in-one PCs. The WD Blue family delivers data storage capacities up to 6 TB.

Improve 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.

Plan for the Future

With better technology comes bigger storage needs. Cameras that record ultra-high de nition video at 4K resolution and 30 frames per second require a ton of storage. Handling all that media is a snap with our 6 TB drive.

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.
