I just bought a 2 TB My Book Essential which is unopened at the moment. Like many others I did not want the VCD or Smartware with it.
But a thought occurred to me that maybe the VCD can be of some use.
Can I boot off the VCD? My BIOS can boot off CDs or USB drives (both flash drives as well as HDD). If I replace Smartware with my system recovery/disk image program that runs in a WinPE environment, it would be easy to restore my system disk. I can rename the program to smartware.exe if that helps.
Anyone know if thi will work?
