On opening WD Smartware application I am continually prompted to update my software. The ‘Home’ tab indicates that I am currently running on version 188.8.131.52
However when I follow the link to the WD S/W update page, download the WD Smartware updater, unpack and run it I get a message saying ‘No WD Samrtware sofware udate is required’ - ‘WD smartware version (1.6.4) is current’.
I have tried this half a dozen times now.
What is going on here?
Perhaps an update is needed to fix the bug telling users to update the sofware- How’s that for ‘e irony’?
Also, if the drive enters ‘sleep mode’ how can it be woken up (without resorting to disabling the sleep function completely)?. I addition to using the automated backup procedure I am using the drive as a conventional external drive and I frequently need to access files and documents.
Thanks in anticipation
