I just got a My Book Essential from my parents for christmas.
I love the thought that they got it for me, but so far I’m NOT impressed!
First, there was NO user manual in the box. I had to come to the website to find a pdf of it and sit here and read through 78 pages just to know how to use the thing.
It took about 10 hours total to do a backup of my system (19.81 GB of a backup). Now, I’m trying to figure out, if I DELETE a file (such a picture, a folder of pictures, or word files) off my computer, will that automatically delete them off My Book?
I would like to be able to take stuff OFF my computer, which is the reason for wanting a backup in the first place.
Does anyone know if this is able to be done?
I don’t currently have the my book plugged into my computer (it was making my computer extremely slow… took almost 10 minutes just for my mozilla to open up!) and I don’t want to delete files and stuff off my computer and then have my book delete them off the my book when it realizes they are no longer on the computer.
I’ve read the whole user manual, and there is NO information about this in there.
