What is the difference between a desktop drive and a WD Purple drive?
The WD Purple drive is designed specifically for 24/7 DVR and NVR surveillance solutions and is optimized with AllFrame™ technology for system playback and performance.
WD Purple drives support 3x the workload rating of desktop drives, making them more capable of handling the higher demands of video surveillance systems.
What capacity do you recommend for my surveillance?
Higher capacity WD Purple drives allow you to store more footage, more high definition video, and more high quality frames per second. WD recommends 4TB or greater for your DVR or NVR surveillance solution.
Easy backup and upgrade
Acronis True Image WD Edition software, available as a free download, can clone drives and backup your operating system, applications, settings and all of your data.
