Backup Anywhere for MY Book

My husband bought me a My Book Essental.  He was under the impression that “Backup Anywhere” came with it, as I wanted a direct copy to the drive rather than an encrypted one.

He has a My Book and a My Passport  himself and now is not sure which drive he got that particular software with.  He registered my product without my knowledge, so when I tried to register it, I had a few problems, and I think one of those was the download of “Backup Anywhere” from the WD site.  When I click on the download button, it just takes me to the page where it lets you register a new product, and doesn’t download it.

Can I actually use the “Anywhere Backup” on a MY Book, or is it a glitch caused by trying to re-register?

The WD Anywhere Backup is only a trial version on the My Book Essential drive.  You will need to purchase it, in order to continue using it.
