I have two desktop PCs (one XP 'server', one Vista 'client'), have recently purchased a Windows 7 netbook (Lenovo S12-ION), and am considering the purchase of an external USB HDD to primarily use with the netbook.
I like the look of the WD My Passport, but wish to know a little more about the device before making a decision.
I am also unsure whether I need to purchase the Elite model with the docking-station for my purposes - as I said earlier, the USB-HDD will be primarily used with my netbook (for backup and storage), but I want also to be able to use it to sync data with my client PC, and to do further backups (that's backups of the My Passport) via my server PC.
Also, I wish to use both Microsoft's Windows 7 Backup and Lenovo's OneKey Recovery alongside Western Digital's SmartWare.
Now, as you may know, Windows 7 Backup is a bit picky about what you can and can't do with different media types.
I'm sure I've other questions, but that will do for now - thanks, in advance, for any and all answers to any of my questions, or any other information you might want to chuck my way.
EDIT: Oh, actually, one last question.
