I did install Smartware 18.104.22.168. The software doesn’t work in a way that I find acceptable. It is slow, consumes above average system resources & after a waiting many hours for a large (635GB) backup to complete discovered that it failed to backup some files for no apparent reason. I use internal WD drives without any problem. I have built a number of systems over the years and know when something isn’t right. Clearly this software falls short. I won’t use it.
The manual states that it is possible to install the drive using the Install Drive settings option so I retain password locking & labeling facility something I paid a premium for-is it possible to get these options using the 22.214.171.124 updater?
If not I’ll just use the drive as a drive with the VCD disabled.
