Basic back up query

I bought a WD My PASSPORT in order to free up space on lap top. If it is used to automatically back up does this mean e.g.once fully backed up and I then delete a photo from the laptop the automatic back up will detect this and delete from the external harddrive?

if so presumably I will have to stop back ups and just drag and drop.




The WD Smartware software will not delete any backed up files when you delete them from your computer. However, I don’t recommend having files in only one place. I recommend you save your important data in 2 or more places.
