I’ve been searching for an answer for more than an hour and couldn’t find anything. Maybe you can help me?
So here’s a situation:
I have 2 Gb WD external HDD as my primary source to store data (videos, pictures, documents, etc.). I connect it to my laptop and save files to it. I also have 4 Gb WD My Book external storage to backup my data. All the data is backed up.
However, I recently got a new laptop (but the external drives are “old” ones) and need to synchronize the backup on My Book with the external HDD. I no loneger have the old laptop.
So the question is: is there a way to so that SmartWare recognizes that the files on external HDD are backed up on My Book? Or in other words is there a way to synchronize the external HDD and My Book without making a new backup?
Or I have to delete the old backup files on My Book and back up everything from the external drive again? It would really **bleep** as I would have to wait several days… And the files are identical on both drives now. So there’s no point in backing up everything like it was a new external HDD.
I hope I explained everything clear enough (new laptop, old primary external drive and old My Book drive with backuped files - how to make SmartWare recognize the external HDD and files on it?).
Thank you in advance for your answers!
