I have a WD My Book Essential external hard drive and I was attempting to backup my files from my MacBook and had several problems that led to a major problem.
First I was wanting to backup a specific folder; BUT after reading the manual, I found out this is impossible.
Then I decided that I’d just back up the entirety of the computer, when I hit the backup button it took 1 minute to say it was complete and then all of the blue items from my Macbook were gone, however it said that my external hard drive also had 0 items on it.
So I ejected the WD hard drive and tried to start from scratch, but it still said there were no files to read on my computer.
So I ejected the WD hard drive again and restarted my computer.
Upon restart all of my things were gone as if I had master reset my computer.
WHERE ARE MY FILES!?!?!
PLEASE HELP ME!
