Have a laptop in infinite repair loop. So plugged WD My Book in and used the software to back-up
My Pics, My Docs, etc. When finished, I moved the My Book to another pc to verify the backup files.
Well, all I see is .swm files backed up. I wanted to back all of those pics in .jpg and just keep them on My Book.
Instead Google said that .swm files are only for restoring to a pc.
Does that mean I can’t open these .swm files in someway to view them on “My Book?” Or to just park them there and store them? Under Q & A there was a similar question and the reply was, “What program did you use to back the pics up in?” Well, I used the WD Back-up program. I didn’t see any option on which program to use to back up My Pics.
Tell me there is a way to open and view all of these .swm files and simply keep them stored on My Book.
