I just purchased a MBL 2tb today and plugged it into my router. All was fantastic, I can drag and drop files manually and access them from all computers including my iphone and ipad.
However the back up facility just doesnt want to work. I have spent hours on it today and even spoken to WD support who suggested reinstalling the software. Still no joy.
I purchased this as I want my work updated in real time as documents are saved to a specific folder on my desktop. It is too time consuming to keep saving in both places at once.
I also have an old WD 250 gb and have tried to use it this evening with the WD software. This syncs fine. To say I am miffed is an understatement. I have also managed to get my USB 250gb to be shared via my router but the WD software wont find it to enable automatic back ups.
So the only think I can think of is to connect the hard drives to my main PC and set up a workgroup so the other PC’s can access the files. Pretty pointless as the main one always has to be on.
What else can I try, I am going nuts here.
