I bought a Passport Elite for my Mac and set it up, but it won’t allow me to just use it as a hard drive. It only seems to want to allow me to back up files through that SmartWare program. I don’t want to use it as a back up; I want to just store files on it that take up space on my computer. I tried just moving files over but it tells me “My Passport cannot be modified”.
Is there a way I can just use this as storage for extra files and not as a back up?
