Connect My Book World Edition (MBWE) II to Time Machine on OS 10.7 (Lion)

I’m having the same problem as user Anthi. Time Machine doesn’t mount my WD_Backup using my previous password and when I try to change the password through admin access, I can’t successfully change my user password for WD_Backup User. I keep getting the error Failed to modify user. Has this problem been solved or is WD still working on a fix?

You may try to restore your MBW to factory defaults, before you proceed you need to backup any critical files from it.  If the issue is not resolved I sugges you to contact WD Support.

Did you previously changed this password?

default “backup” should work if you reset by pressing the button for 4 seconds
