My Book World Edition II - Using Windows 8 now the software is not compatible

Have the the backup for a couple of years but have recently updated from Windows 7 (worked fine) to windows 8 and neither the backup or Mionet work in this environment.

The drive has always had problems staying on the network on all windows versions but especially in Windows 8. I can’t keep it on the network long enough to rebuild the database so I can’t even use Windows 8 file history. My drive is now a rather ugly and expensive ornament.

Have you tried to access the files manually? You can also try mapping the my book using WDlink.
