I just purchased a myPassport Essential 500Gb. I was hoping to simply using it like a Flash drive and drag and drop the folders that I want to copy from my laptop to the drive. I see the drive as Drive E but when I try and drag and drop a folder or create a new folder, I get an error message saying that the Disk is either locked or I do not have access. :robotmad:
It seems like I absolutely have to use the WD back-up software. Is this true or is there a way to simply use it like a normal harddrive and drag and drop files to and from the drive?
