The back up from computer duplicates files on my WD 3TB My Book Studio


When i make changes in my computer, or relocate files in different folders, the WD Smartware duplicates the files on my 3TB My Book Studio after making the bak up.

I wanted to know how to disable this function, and make the back up on my 3TB My Book Studio to have the exactly same files and ubication as my computer. Is there any way to do this so as not to erase all the material from the external drive and make the back up again??

Thanks a lot!!


Welcome to the WD Community.

When you move a file on your computer and do some changes to it, the backup software will identify that as a different file and it will be backed up.

That function cannot be disable.

As a recommendation, add this as a request through the ideas board
