Hi, I’m new to this forum, so forgive me if this has been discussed elsewhere. I have searched, but not found anything relevant.
I’m going to help install a friend’s My Book Essential from her old PC (an HP Pavilion T3320, Windows XP, SP3) to her new PC (HP all-in-one Windows 8.1). All her old data (photos, documents, emails etc) have already been moved over to her new PC. Her My Book has plenty of unused capacity, she just wants to have a back-up device connected to her new PC.
The question is, “Can I just make all the usual physical connections, then wait whilst the My Book auto-installs or will I have to manually install software, SES drivers etc on the new Windows 8.1 PC?”
Thanking you for your help, in anticipation.
