SmartWare has been a disaster. First, updates caused driver conflicts that blocked internet access. I had to remove the updates repeatedly. The last attempt brought on a catastrophic system failure that took days to resolve. (SmartWare was the occasion, not the cause.) Now that I am using ShadowProtect for backups, the need to unlock the Passport drive repeatedly is a time-wasting nuisance.
The unlock program amounts to redundant security. Is there any way to eliminate it?
