Very Happy with My Passport SE

My drive came with the new firmware already loaded and I could hide the virtual cd that I won’t never use. I don’t mind about the space it takes in the drive. If I ever needed is there.

I will use this drive with my WDTV Live, I am happy!


The “Smartware” software does not backup ANY .exe files, even if it is not a system file and is in the My Documents folder as far as I can see. Thus the WD drives are not a viable backup option using “Smartware”.

Many of us have .exe files from software we downloaded and need to save. This needs to be corrected by WD.

Your post sounds like an Idea or a Feature Request. The best place for this is in our Ideas Lab. This way someone from WD will be sure to see it. However, I would search first and make sure that there isn’t another idea similar to yours that you could add your post to and vote on.
