Forcing Partial Backup on WD SmartWare

In case anyone needs to backup large files that WD SmartWare has put in the pending state, just advance the date on the PC to the next day (24 hours). This forces the “Partial backup accomplished” to resume and save the pending files.

I hope Western Digital realizes that there should be a way to force a full backup, including the large files, in case you are formatting your hard drive for example…
