I can't use WD Smartware because i just installed Ubuntu 11.10 on my pc!

I had to install linux on my pc for educational reasons. I still have windows but it is essential that i can back up the files stored in the other partition of my hard drive !!! I’m a linux newbie and don’t know much about the terminal commands, so i need specific instructions.

Thank you

Smartware doesn’t support Linux, there’s absolutely nothing you can use to get it working. You’ll have to use another software.

you might want to look up Déjà Dup or Back In Time as two recent, popular backup programs with graphical interfaces.  you’ll find them in the software repository.  read up on them and chose the one best for you.
