Compatibility of Windows 7 (64 bit) with My Book Premium Edition II


#1

Has anyone any experience with running a  My Book Premium Edition II, Model WDG2T10000E, (1TB) in Raid 1 with Windows 7 (64 bit)? Windows 7 Compatibility Center  says  that the drive is compatible with Windows 7 but  I can’t find any upgrade for the software for Managing Raid that I loaded from a CD when I set the drive up to run with XP. Any advice please?

Thanks for your help. Is there a serious risk of data loss if I install the download with out backing up - backing up 500gb presents me with quite a problem!! Thanks again.

Yes, you will loose all data if not  careful.

You may not know if something might corrupted or interfere or power outage, loosing cable.

Keep in mind: It is always safer to back up all important data before do any updates.
