I have the 3TB, USB 3.0 Essential working on my HP Laptop with Vista. I’d like to move all the files off my old desktop with XP.
When I downloaded the SmartWare and ran back-up, it appears that the files from my HP were copied onto my desktop not the other way around. Can’t seem to figure this out, but here is my goal:
- WD MyBook Essential is the single back-up drive for two computers
- all files from the desktop move to the MyBook, so I can trash the old PC
I’m a novice, so any technical advice in plain language would be most welcomed.
