I have only had My Book live a few days but just realized anyone within range can get into
the public folder and copy or delete files.
I went on my kids windows 7 netboook,done a network search,
the computer found My Book Live,I clicked on the icon which came up
with an install option which I did and I now have full copy and delete options.
What stops the guy next door deleting all my public files or stealing my music.
Will have to stop using the public file.
I have found no option to protect my HDD for anyone within range of picking
up the signal.
