I have a My Book World II Network drive (Model WD20000H2NC-00) and primarily want to store backups for the two computers on my LAN. The LAN consists of Computer 1, running Windows 7 Home Premium, 64 bit, Computer 2, running Vista home Premium, 32 bit, a printer using a Netgear WGR614v9 router. All devices are hardwired to the router.
I want to store all my backups on my network drive and therefore have not installed MioNet. I have installed WDiscovery and WD Anywhere Backup.
My problem is mainly how to set up the drive to keep each user’s backup private. The way I read WD’s instructions to save on my LAN w/o MioNet, I use the Windows networking tools and must save in a public file. It seems that opens all files on the network drive to all users. Is there a way to make them private?
