Backup destination on My Book Live


#1

So I ran WD smartware to do a backup and it tells me it backed my files up successfully.  But when I browse the mybooklive drive I do not see any “backups”??? I see just the shared music,pictures,videos and software.

Show hidden files and folders is on.

Maybe I’m blind or overlooking the obvious but I don’t see the backup anywhere.

Smartware backs up with it’s own method it only backs up certain files.

Smartware backup files cannot be seen from Windows explorer as I understand. These files only can be seen and restored using Smartware.

If you want a simple backup use MS SyncToy downloaded from here.

And you can backup any folder you want and it will create mirror image on any folder set you create.

Oh ok, I didn’t realize you couldn’t see the backs up in windows explorer.

Thanks for your response!
