My Book Home 2T


I have used this with no issues but noticed there is a circular button on the back. I don’t know what it is for.

When I unistall the drive fron the pc I peform a safety remove with the usb button then just unplug the drive’s ac power from the surge strip.

Is this ok or should I be medoing anything with the button. I have valuable images there so need to do this right.

Thank you


It may be a power button but that only works with Smartware installed.

That explains a lot, Joe. I was worried about not turning it off and damaging it before.Thank you for the information.
