I need to update MyBook Elite WD SmartWare, but have concerns. Instructions say:
IMPORTANT: The following precautions should be taken before installing the firmware update.
- Before updating the firmware on your drive, make sure you have a copy of all the data on your drive stored on a separate device.
I have 435 GB of free space on my pc, and need to copy/store 333 GB of data from MyBook, to update the firmware. o.O Yes, I am using it as external storage.
Question is, will Acronis allow me to clone and store the external drive? Will I need a full 333 GB of space for it? Has anyone lost data, during a firmware update? Sorry, very new to this. Appreciate any help.
