“People increasingly realize the importance of their content – often memories that should last a lifetime. If you look at the younger generation, from 22-35 years old, they are the trend drivers, and over 82% of them back up their data. We expect to see this habit spiralling to all consumer segments. So, we are delighted to introduce the new My Passport HDD as it matches our consumers’ lifestyles and, at the same time, provides the ease of use to help them back up their digital life and preserve their memories,” commented Jaganathan Chelliah, Director Marketing, Western Digital India.
