Our microSD™ card comes with a custom version of NOOBS OS installer that enables booting from SD card and launching from the drive. This unique software installs Raspbian PIXEL, Raspbian Lite, and Project Spaces directly onto the USB drive, so that whether you’re a Raspberry Pi beginner or pro, we give you the essentials to dive into your projects right out of the box.

Safely manage many projects from one reliable place

The included Project Spaces software lets you create up to five work spaces to organize, access, and customize unique projects from one Raspberry Pi and WD PiDrive setup. Perfect for someone who likes to experiment with multiple projects or for a classroom environment with multiple users.

Stay organized with the easy to assemble enclosure

Using the included enclosure, protect your Raspberry Pi and WD PiDrive while keeping your components in a tidy, attractive unit.

What is Project Spaces?

Once installed, Projects Spaces replaces the need for multiple SD cards to manage different projects for your Raspberry Pi. A “Project Space” is a vanilla install of Raspbian Jessie Lite that can be used to test code or create different projects in their own isolated environments. This prevents elements of your separate projects to conflict with each other across Project Spaces. Each space has its own /boot and /root partition, so you can even have different settings in config.txt. and password protect each space for multiple users.

Learn and explore

You can create up to 5 project spaces on one drive and dedicate each space to a different OS like creating a Desktop Environment, web browser, personal network storage location, and more.

Stay organized

Easily manage multiple projects on one setup. Now you can eliminate the need to save multiple projects on multiple SD cards.

Learn to code

Can also be used in a classroom environment or by multiple users, each space can be password protected so that students can individually save and access their work from one setup.
