When I use the standard backup software supplied within My Passport out-of-box (WD Backup), my “Empty Folders” will not backup alongside my other files.
I found a WD article that suggested the “Empty Folders” do not backup by design, after much searching.
This external drive was purchased to do this very thing as my work has a “file directory” made entirely of “Empty Folders” for future projects.
I am disappointed that there is no “button” or “switch” to enable/disable this function.
Is there a way to fix this issue?
*What I am really looking for is an “external hard-drive” version of Google Drive or Dropbox that will backup every hour as I work, making an image of what is on my PC. I fear this is not possible with WD My Passport.
