I purchased a “MY Passport Essential” with the understanding from the salesperson at “Best Buy” that I could very easily backup all of my pictures. Needless to say Me thinks I had a little smoke blown up you know where. My initial backup of my data gave me a great backup of all the files that came with my dell when I purchased it. Those are the sample pictures, sample music and sample everything. Scanning the faq’s on the WD web site it appears that there is additional (hardware/software) needed in order to accomplish what I want to do. Am I correct in my assumption??
any and all help or suggestion would be appreciated. right now Im thinking of returning to product to “BEST BUY” and getting my 80.00 back. Is there a reliable backup drive out there in the market place that anyone know s about.
