first, when i first plugged the drive in, it was in Raid 0 mode and contained a few directories (one for Apple and a few others) and the wizard app for installing the 3 utilities. when i configured the drive for Raid 1, i saw the warning that all data would be lost but i didn’t think that included those initial directories. but it did. so now those directories and wizard app are gone. will i/do i need those directories? i was able to download the installs for the drive utilities and security apps and i already had SmartWare installed for my Passport drive but those directories are gone. if i don’t need them fine but if i do, i’ll need to restore them. can i do that?
second, now that it’s in Raid 1 mode and the main and backup drives are configured, how can i now verify that there actually is data on drive 2 now that i’ve copied data onto drive 1? only drive 1 has a drive letter associated with it so makes me wonder how to access drive 2. similarly, how can i restore from that drive if i needed to?
third, why did i see what looked like a CD drive show up in the drive list in explorer? it had a drive letter, an icon that looked like a padlock and had a volume name of ‘WD Unlock’. what the heck is that and do i even need it? is this Unlock related to the locking you can do by adding/removing a password in the Security app?
any help would be appreciated.
