Best way to delete all filles from my My Book?

Hi All,

I have looked and haven’t seen this answered anywhere else.

On my My Book I have my old laptop’s backup and my new laptop’s backup (plus my wife’s laptop’s backup).

Everything is great except now the 500gb My Book is getting full. I do not need my old laptop’s backup. What is the best way to delete my old laptop’s backup from the My Book?

Should I just use Windows Explorer to delete all the files (i.e. within the WD SmartWare.swstor folder for that backup)? Is there a better way using the WD Smartware software?



Hi there,

the way you explained is the best way to delete that specific backup, in case you need to delete everything, you can format the device, but i believe this is not the case. Hope this helps
