I have the WD MY Passport Essential SE and the software is slow to open. Once it opens, it takes a long time to caterorize files then it goes into backup mode. What does "partial backup" mean? It backed up what it saw as any changes in files - new or changes to existing? I try to have it backup any Outlook .pst files and they are rather large so I wonder why the backup software is so slow? I had an 3 yr old Seagate external drive and it had a very quick backup software.

testerking, a Partial Backup Warning is an alert presented by WD SmartWare when the backup has a problem. It should present you with a report of what was not backed up (And why) if you are using WD SmartWare Version 1.5.0.
