actually I think that is a great feature as it allows one to remove some files on the native drive to free up disk space.
I’ve been doing that with photos, I let the WD software back them up to the Passport, then I also copy them to DVD’s then I move them to the open partition on the Passport so I can access there there from my editing program. In othewords that becomes their new location. The only problem is that once they are on the open partition of the Passport in its My Pictures folder …they are no longer being backed up automatically.
It would be great if the WD software had a file management function with which one could move files from the original location to another location on the original drive or to the Passport or another Passport or another external drive …and have the backup software check there and update if it changed …all the while keeping track of where it is.
Perhaps there is already a way to do that …if so I’d sure like to learn about it.
