Western Digital sent out a press release this morning, announcing its latest dual-drive storage system, the My Book Mirror Edition. Configured out-of-the box in RAID 1 mode, the My Book Mirror Edition automatically mirrors your data for extra protection.

WD® (NYSE: WDC) today introduced its new My Book® Mirror Edition™ dual-drive storage systems, which can automatically store valuable personal content not once, but twice, to maximize data safety. This RAID-based continuous data protection feature, called mirroring, makes WD's My Book Mirror Edition storage systems the safest place for storing irreplaceable data.

Personal collections of digital content, such as photos, music, and videos, continue to grow on desktop and notebook computers around the world. Consumers are increasingly aware that taking precautions to protect their data is vital and are looking for a simple solution.

When users store their personal content on a My Book Mirror Edition system, their valuable data is automatically mirrored for extra protection - making it easy and economical to benefit from the data redundancy typically found in corporate data centers. This mirroring technology makes the new dual-drive systems an ideal storage solution for photographers, home users and small offices and anyone looking for extra assurance that their data is safe.
My Book Mirror Edition is available now in 1 TB and 2 TB capacities and is priced at $289.99 and $549.99, respectively. Additional information is available on Western Digital's here.
