OK to Remove Smartware once in use?

I have a WD MY Book 3TB External HD. I have been using the Smartware for backups but find the software clunky and taking up too much of the drive space. Is there a way to remove it without disrupring my files on the drive?

 I don’t care about the backup files on it as I plan on backing up to another drive with other software. 


Removing Smartware will not affect the drives that are already saved on your external drive.

Thanks for the reply… 

I’d like to remove the smartware from my pc… and delete the smartware backup files on my WD MY Book to make space…what is the best procedure to do this?  Thanks
