I have a brand new My Book Essential 2 TB USB 3.0 drive, and have not yet installed the softwares (backup, etc) that come with it. If I install the softwares once, and then format my computer’s internal drives, then will the backup software run again? Can it be reinstalled once again from the same application files given in the My Book? Will that alter anything already stored in the My Book?
A strange thing happened and I don’t know if it has something to do with connecting the My Book, but I would be grateful if someone can guide me. A moment after I plugged in the new 2 TB drive, I played a YouTube video on full screen mode and the computer hanged. This is now happening repeatedly. Does this have something to do with the new 2 TB drive? My computer is old, with Windows XP, a Core 2 Duo processor, 3 GB RAM, a new ASUS EN210 Silent 512M DDR2 graphics card, and an old motherboard MSI P965Neo.
Thanks in advance.
