Is it possible to use the automatic backup function to backup my C drive and save extra files to the external drive that I no longer want kept on my computer? Would I need to create a partition to do this? Any help would be appreciated.
Yo do not need to create a new partition. SmartWare will save the backups in a folder called wdsmartware.swstor, you can transfer any other data manually, out of this folder.
It’s never a good idea to trust important data to just one drive internal or external no matter who makes it. You need at least 2 copies on different drives to be safe.
here is a few suggestion
create 1 folder – for both computer – and – mybook backup
let’s called it RECYCLE BIN
create 1 folder – both
let’s call it THIS WEEK update and new files
then you backup these 2 – every week – do it manually
so it achieve your purpose
register and make a new account on justcloud-com
and there is automatic backup there
I think automatic is a perfect dream, but never a good practical idea
as when will it trigger, will you be sure you turn on both device when it is automatical backup or backup everytime you boot up your computer – so I thinks it is OPERATIONAL MANAGMENT
