A couple of years ago I had to replace one of my external hard drives when one of them failed.
I used the same name and drive letter assignment for various reasons for the new external hard drive.
I added it to my WD Smartware backup plan that I do weekly for several hard drives.
But I always get a message saying “WD Smartware Error–Backup source cannot be found. Please verify your backup plan”.
All my drives are being backed up (correctly, I hope)… but I still keep getting this error message.
I suspect it is referring to the old hard drive that was replaced.
So how do I remove this “backup source” from my WD Smartware backups ?
I saw somewhere here where someone recommending re-installing the WD Smartware software.
That sounds ridiculous, and not sure if I still have the original source or if it was downloaded online when I bought my 4TB WD MyBook external hard drive several years ago.
And even if I did, I would not want to risk risk loosing all my backup plans & backups.
The correct and simple answer to this would be helpful… or I guess I will just put up with the issue, and maybe explore a better backup/restore software.
