I’ve only just joined the WD forum in the hope that someone will help me sort it out so that WD discovery/AnywhereBackup wil actaully see the MBWE. At the moment I’m doing an intial ‘full’ backup on the desktop (whilst using my laptop to search the forum) using hte “30 day free trial”. I use a small utility called NetMeter and wonder if what I have noted might answer you query/problem.
When running the backup software I’m seeing transfer speeds of 18Mb/s on a wireless network when the back up software is in the foreground. The moment you do something else on the PC - the transfer speed drops to 1 Mb/s or thereabouts - then close whatever it you were doing - and the transfer speed instantly jumps back again.Doubtless this is to prevent the backup software hogging the resources.
I don’t know whether this would apply to your specific situation - as I’ve said - I’m still trying to get full functionality on my one - so havent’ tried copy/paste or darg/drop to see what happens.
