Western Digital reveals Windows 8-based portable hard drives

Windows To Go is one of the more interesting features found in the enterprise version of Windows 8. First revealed over a year ago, Windows To Go will allow people to copy their entire Windows 8 installation onto a USB drive. The drive can then be plugged in to any PC which will allow its users access to his or her full Windows 8 setup while on the go.

Today, hard drive maker Western Digital announced it would launch new portable hard drives that are designed specifically for the Windows To Go setup. The company's press release states that the My Passport Enterprise products will have 500 GB of storage space. It adds:

The capacity and portability allows users to easily carry all their data and settings so they can quickly boot and run their personalized Windows 8 system on any compatible PC in the office, at home or on the go. Additionally, setup is fast and easy with the WD Compass utility included with My Passport Enterprise.

The My Passport Enterprise hard drive will go on sale on Friday, the same day as the Windows 8 launch, for $119.99.
