I’ve bought My Passport about 2 days ago, because I was in need for some memory to my old 2001 notebook (w/ a very small hd). After using the software, and doing all the backup w/ smartware, I’ve accessed the drive by windows explorer, and could find everything there (besides the weird named folders, that made think in the beginning that I could only access the files w/ smartware), I guess I could easily use as an actual hd, however, there was this notepad file named “DON’T MODIFY”, well, I’ll admit that got me I little scared. Reading some posts here, I think I actually CAN use it w/ explorer, download stuff directly on the drive, and So on. However, I guess it would be nice to ask before doing this anyway. So, here are my questions:
1 - Can I copy, save directly and delete files using windows explorer, with no fear at all?
2 - If, I can, can I put those files on the folders smartware created for my backup (the weird named ones), or they happen to be the ones I shouldn’t modify and I should create new folders to put new files without smartware?
3 - If anything happens, formatting the drive should be the appropriate solution?
So, that’s it, hope it won’t take long for an answer…
