I have WIndows 8 and just got a My Book Live. I’d like to set it up for two people to auto-backup to it (other one is Win 7).
On Windows 8 I see you can setup File HIstory to a network drive, but it doesn’t seem to allow me to select any of the Shares on the My Book Live. Anyone know why this is and if there’s a way to get it working? I know only Win 7 Pro can upload to network locations.
I wanted each of us to upload to a different Share, however it appears the SmartWare software only allows you to upload to the SmartWare share location.
Also, I tried creating another user in the web config, was going to make 2 users and each have access to their own share, and SmartWare then said there were no writable partitions until I removed all users other than admin. Security isn’t really a concern, it’s fine if we can access eachother’s files (the device itself has a password), just trying to keep it clearly organized.
Is there any way to accomplish what I want, using WD software, Windows, 3rd party (free preferably) software, or some combination of those?
