I have a My Book Live installed on a machine running Windows XP. I used the MyBookLive dashboard to create a new share, a private directory called “private” with access for me only. It does not automatically show in Windows Explorer unless I sign in to WD2go.com and use the “Open in Explorer” function.
When ever I try to copy a file over to the private director using Windows Explorer I get the error message: “make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is not currently in use”. I can create folders but I cannot copy files.
By looking at the directory (or share named “private”) via right click/properties I can see it is formatted as FAT. Everything else I use (except for a small partition on my hard drive is) is NTSF. There are no other menu options like “Tools”, “Hardware”, “Sharing” or "Quota available to me when I’m viewing the properties dialogue box on this drive. I cannot reformat the drive because it does not appear under Computer Management/Storage/Disk Management.
Does anyone know how I can copy files to this share? Does anyone know if it has anything to do with the formatting and if I can change it? Thanks.
