Can’t believe my husband got a free external and never opened it, or at least gave it to me to install it for him - or just giving it to me, could’ve worked too… The problem I have now is that I have had three different 27" iMacs, and currently have the Fusion. Since the My Book is only 2TB. I thought I would just use it to backup a specific category of my data (book database) and continue to use my 4TB G-Tech until I find a higher capacity I like.
So, why in the world would the box show it’s compatible with Macs (albeit need to be reformatted), but not include, or have available, the software to actually run a backup? So I have an unopened (in brand new condition) peripheral item, specifically made for Home backup uses, but it cannot actually be used for that purpose…because I have an iMac? Setting legacy software aside, if I had a PC, the WD Backup app would be available for me now and would allow the product to do as designed…So what can it be considered now for Mac Users, a paperweight?
Just ignore my text attitude… it’s not geared toward anyone, I’m just so tired of buying things that are made to be thrown away.
