When it was last in use the MyPassport external drive had the lock/unlock function in use. My system would show an f: drive as “WD Unlocker” & after entering the correct password the the “My Passport” drive would appear as drive G: & was useable.
I am going to put the drive back in use as a place to do mirror image backups of the SSD and C: drives. Is it safe to remove the four filesfolders associated with the f: drive - i.e.folder - Extras; folder - Locale; file - autorun & application file- WD Drive Unlock. I do not believe any of the commercial backup programs will navigate through “WD Unlocker” without assistance.
