The manual for the MyBook Live Duo, under “Connecting a USB Drive”, reads :
“The USB drive can serve as a target for backups in WD SmartWare, Windows, or Time Machine.”
This would indeed be convenient, as I’ve been backing up through Time Machine on a WD USB-Drive for about a year now and I would like to continu to use this Back-up (meanwhile 1TB) and drive instead of starting from scratch.
However, when I connect this drive to the MB Live Duo, only the ‘normal’ partition shows up as a share. The Time-Machine partition is neglected. Also, in the Time Machine Preferences, it is not possible to select any partition on the connected USB-drive. I also tried a freshly formatted USB drive with the same result.
The latest Firmware-Update (may 2012) left things unchanged…
I’m I missing something here?
