I just purchased a My Passport Essential (500 GB) for the sole purpose of having a back up copy of all my pictures, videos, and music. I followed the instructions and installed the WD SmartWare Software (although I wish I had not done so now) and I have successfully backed up my files on my laptop. I now want to add older pictures that are burned on CDs to the My Passport to back those up as well. How do I accomplish this? I do not see how to do that using the software. I would have preferred to NOT use the software and just drag and drop the files that I actually want to back up. Is it too late? What do I need to do? I know I can uninstall the software, but what about the backup it already performed? How I do I get rid of that back up so I don’t loose that space on the drive?
Thanks in advance for the help!
