okay so I’m running a first-time back-up (47.98GB) of PC data onto my WD MyBookLive today. I started it approx 07:30am this morning, when I came back home later this afternoon (approx 01:30pm) the WDSmartWare content gauge shows that 47.97GB of PC data has been backed-up. A message displayed in upper-left corner of screen says “Partial Backup Completed”. So now, like 12 hours later (07:30pm), it still displays “Partial Backup Completed”. I guess the back-up process is still active? Also when I view the actual MyBookLive file system (via-Explorer) it shows no data or files present.
I called Western Digital technical support, explained the situation, they replied that this behavior should be normal? That the drive is most likely generating the additional default version’s of file(s) (in my case the default = 5).
Is it normal to take this amount of time generating first-time back-up (like 12 hours-plus)? For 48GB of data?
I have PC using Windows 7 Professional
