I got a new MyBook Essential and was wondering what the best way was to backup two pcs. I have been hearing how people have been having lots of problems with the WD smartware, but is it worth installing for the security? Win 7 backup software would work just fine, right? Any advice? Should I install WD Smartware if I intend on backing up more than 1 pc on this HD? Does it matter if the pcs use different OS (win XP vs. win 7)? Would it be better to partition the HD so that each pc has its own drive?
Thanks in advance.
