Portable external drives have been a boon for many consumers and professionals alike and for the longest time, the only upgrade this category of products saw was in its connecting port and the maximum storage. Lately, however, there has once again been significant movement on what portable drives can do. A few years ago we got our first portable drive which could create its own Wi-Fi hotspot to enable data exchange between the drive and other wireless devices such as smartphones. For photographers and content creators, the external drive has always required a laptop and possibly even a card reader. When on long, extended shoots, the laptop is a necessity simply for the purpose of dumping the data that has been shot. For example, if you’re a wedding photographer, taking the laptop on-location poses a risk. The WD My Passport Wireless Pro addresses some of those risks but brings a few of its own.
