The evolvement of technology has created a myriad of innovations that make life easier and smarter for humans but not without its own short comings or challenges.
One good thing that comes with innovation in smartphones and tabs is the expanded storage capacity that latest smartphones come with, and so you see some having storage capacity of up to 258 gigabytes.
But as smart and fancy these devices are, not many particularly content creators can afford them, and as such Western Digital Corporation, one of the world’s producers of storage device, developed a smart external storage device for smartphones, tabs as well as computer.
My first contact with the storage device from Western Digital Corporation was the one with a ‘Type B’ port until innovation led it into developing the SanDisk Ultra® Dual Drive Go USB Type-C™ model which though not a plug and play device but offers a user-friendly file manage system through the device app, which can be downloaded from PlayStore or Apple Store depending on your device type.
Ordinarily downloading should be just a simple procedure but not with the Dual Drive Go USB Type-C storage device, and the reasons are obvious. Before attempting to download be sure there is enough space in your mobile device, and be sure you have a good internet connection to avoid getting download error. The error will keep coming until you sought out the space issue.
You need to also know how unique this app is, the app lets you organize your files, clean up your memory, and back up your files. The app comes with a user-friendly interface and is a simple and convenient tool to help manage your files and content.
But I don’t know why Western Digital Corporation is not clear on what version of android or iphone device that the dual device cannot work with. I think that will save one the stress of putting money on what one may have difficulty using. However, it is common with most device, you need to be updating to the latest version, and try to uninstall & re-install this application, when you see some issues.
Besides, all that one thing you will enjoy is the easy at which one can offload or back up content to his compatible SanDisk Dual Drive, SanDisk Solid State Drive, or microSD card using the app.
For lovers of movie on transit, the SanDisk Ultra® Dual Drive Go USB Type-C is just another travel mate, offering one the opportunity to down movies into it, and watch right on your smartphone. But you have to make a right choice from the range of storage capacity of 32GB, 64GB, 128GB, 256GB, 512GB and 1TB.
But don’t forget that the SanDisk Ultra® Dual Drive Go USB Type-C device don’t support all video format. You need to figure out if it can take your desired video format such as wma, flac, or mp4 but the audio from it is superb.
Another thing about the SanDisk Ultra® Dual Drive Go USB Type-C is that you will certainly get stressed-up trying to figure out how it works, like just moving files, really large files around but once you get the tricks, you will know it is better than constantly carrying a cable around and unlocking your phone to allow the computer to access to it.
For the laptop use, the experience is just a simple trip.
