I bought this drive for the purposes of backing up my laptop. I proceeded under the notion that by using WD Sync, I was backing up the data. I was backing up 50 gb of information from my laptop and by using WD Sync, 50 gb of information was transferred to the external drive.
Well my laptop crapped out on me and with the newly purchased laptop, I am trying to restore the files backed up on the external drive. I thought that WD Sync would serve to do this but now doing some internet research, WD Sync is not to be used to back up files.
What are my options? I am able to access the files on the hard drive but they appear to not be in their native format. I tried restoring through Norton 360 but doesnt appear to be compatible.
Any information would be helpful...thanks
