I recently purchased a WD My Passport ultra to replace my old My Passport that I successfully used with WD Sync so that I could view my emails and documents on various computers when travelling. I now realise the WD Passport Smartware software doesn’t allow me to sync which is what I want to do. Is there a way to use new My Passport external drive to sync emails and documents so I can view documents on various computers.
This can be accomplished by replacing WD SmartWare with a 3rd party synchronization utility of your preference.
Thanks for your help. Can I add a third party sync software and keep Smartware too?
As long as the sync utility does not take over the whole drive you should be able to use both applications. Otherwise the sync utility will erase the WD SmartWare backup folder.
