Urgent Help!


#1

Hi there all you technologically capable people!!

I obviously, have a problemo!
Well!!!
Long story short I had all my files backed up from my computer on my Passport Essential, then comp crashed had to get a new hardrive, plugged in my Passport for file retrieving and there is NO BACKED UP VOLUMES in the retrieve tab!!!

I am having a bit of a panic…
Is there a way I can get to the files and restore them through the My Computer Folder??

Thanks so much!!! :slight_smile:

Yes. You can go into the backup folder and retrieve the backed up files. It will be named Smartware if you have and older Smartware version or smartware_stor if you have a newer version.
