I’ve just bought a WD myBook 4TB external Hard Drive. I need some information before starting the backup since the instruction manuale is very poor and doesn’t provide enough information with regard to sync details. I also tried to search in the community but I couldn’t find the answer to my problems.
So, I want to backup myBook external HD (Z:) with my internal HD (K:) WD 2 TB Caviar Green.
The first problem is that I can only set the origin to the internal hard drive (K:) to my external HD (Z:). If I choose my external HD (Z:) as origin it doesn’t shows up the internal HD (K:) as a destination. I tried to check Disk management but all disks were online. Is there a problem or I cannot set the backup from external to internal HD?
The second problem is that I don’t know what happen once I start the backup. Will the program create the same folder pattern on the other disk? I mean, if I have 2 folders on my internal HD:
and I want to backup them to my myBook external HD does the program create the same two folders within the Z: unit? Because I already have the “Photos” and “Movies” on Z: external HD but on a different path.
So, the question is: 1) Will the program copy data according to the path in the origin? 2) Will I keep other data already saved on my Z: once the backup is finished?
Thank you very much for any help.
