I just installed the latest drive manager and for some reason I now get two icons in the menu bar - both bring up th enew version. How do I remove one of these?
If you have a windows computer, go to the control panel, click on add or remove programs and then select the drive manager If you have a Mac, go to the application folder and just delete the drive manager folder.
I have the same thing going on with my iMAC after installing the update. There is no wd drive manager folder in my applications. After un-installing, re-installing, and restarting the computer I have had no luck. Both versions of the two wd drive manager icons are the latest versions.
I still have the issue with the 2 icons in the menu bar. Has anyone successfully fixed this issue?
i have the same problem still, and am using the latest version 3.01. any ideas on how to fix?
Having tried several “unistall” and “re-install” there are still 2 Icons in the Menu bar.
And there are also two Processes “WD Drive Manager Status Menu” running.
Killing one of them does help, but it does re-appear after disconnecting and reconnection the drive …
OK, so I solved my own issue.
For those who still have this issue, here is what I did to fix it.
I opened Activity Monitor and there were two processes labelled WD Drive Manager Status Menu. Quite them both.
Go to the boot drive and go Library/Application Support/WesternDigital
when I looked in this directory there were a number of files, and another directory labelled WDDriveManager.
I deleted them all and re-installed as I wasn’t sure which were the right files. This worked!
Once re-installed, I had the WDDriveManager folder, but no other files in here. Therefore, deleting everying in the WesternDigital directory except for WDDriveManager may work.
Hope this helps others with this issue.
