Just installed this on my windows 7 desktop. Working fine.
I chose not to install any of the software that came with it. I have Acronis which I’ve used for years.
Since there is no on/off switch, I just let it boot up with the desktop and let it turn itself off at shutdown.
I would like to know if there is a way to have it spindown or sleep after a period of time. Right now, it’s running constantly as long as the desktop is on and I don’t wan’t to keep plugging/unplugging the usb 3.0 cable.
I read that there is an old wd app on their website that may do this, but i don’t know if it works with win7 or with my passport.
