I have my drive set-up, no problems, I was told my Tech Support that after running the “Backup” 1x that the drive would continue to keep the files, etc. up to date, and I would not have to run another full backup.
Now, After running the backup, It stated (Top Right of Back-up Screen) Back-up Completed Successfullly…BUT: Still in the lower right, the button said “Stop Backup”. I was/am assuming because to keep it current it is always in backup mode?
At that point, I decided to do a little, “House Cleaning”, and deleted quite a few files, moved quite a bit around, etc. Well, now, I open the WD Smartware and it NOW SAYS “Partial Backup Completed Successfully”, and it appears to be running.
One clear indication: The “Colors” on the computer side WERE all the same as the Drive Side, NOW, there is quite a bit of difference.
NOW: I can expect this, if I changed a lot around, and it has to “CATCH UP” and mirror how it is now.
MY MAIN QUESTION: In order to keep a constant identical backup, DO I HAVE TO KEEP WD SMARTWARE RUNNING AT ALL TIMES?? Or Just the WD Quickview that starts with the system.
Also, Will the “Stop Backup” EVER go away, and be “Happy” where it is, and then just save files as necessary, or is Constantly in “Backup” mode…
Really, as I said, do I have to start WD smartware ALL THE TIME, and allow it to “Catch up” or is something wrong?
THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR TAKING THE TIME FOR SUPPORT…
All my very best.
