I used it to back up my files from my Windows 7 desktop. It worked fine and was relativly simple to do.
Now I have 2 problems.
I can’t access the files that are on the MyPassport. The Retrieve tab is not ‘lit’ and when I go to the Settings tab it will not let me browse to the MyPassport files. Can I use the MyPassport as a separate hard drive? Using Windows Explorer I don’t appear to be able to “see” into the MyPassport to see the files that were backed up there.
When I tried to use Windows Explorer to dump the files on the MyPassport into my 7-yr old laptop (Windows XP) I couldn’t get it to work. When I double-clicked the WDSmartWare folder in Windows Explorer I got a box that said it wasn’t compatable.
Can anyone tell me how to use it?
