I used the SmartWare software to back-up the contents of an internal storage drive. Is there any way to access these files that are now on the MyBook? When I go to the drive to explore I find a folder named WD_Smartware which contains a dozen folders with long strings of letters and numbers as names. Inside some of these folders is a folder named D_ or H_ each of which contains a hodge-podge of files, some which I can acces with the original programs that created them and some with a .dcm name. I cannot accopunt for all of the files that were supposedly transfered.
I’m not comfortable with this arrangement. Is this just the nature of the SmartWare software? That it puts the files on the drive in such a way that they can only be conveniently retreived through the use of the Smartware software and not be accessed and used through WIndows Explorer?
If so, can I ditch the Smartware software and use Norton Ghost or manually move my files to the MyBook and maintain the folder and file structure that I am more used to?
