Hi. I just connected new drive (passport ultra), installed drivers, and then backed up about 8 gig to the external drive using the (stupid) “smartware pro”. It seemed to do it and do it pretty fast too. BUT, was surprised that I could not view the files from Window. That is, Ehen I went to windows, hit the start window icon, clicked on Computer and clicked on “My passport”, none of the files it just copied are visible. they are clearly there since it shows there is a new 8 gig stored - but it won’t let me see them. I always have “show hidden files” chosen, though did not go in to see if i have to select that option again for each new thing I add. I knew I can go into the stupid smartware software and click on restore and view files that way, but that is not what I want to do. I would like to view the tree structure right from Windows the same way I view my internal hard drive or other attched media. I also want to be able to copy those files straight form Windows if desired without having to use that “smartware” garbage.
Can this be done? How?
Very frusatrating that this isn’t the default. Thanks much!
