I am trying to back up from the computer I am
using, not another device. I have ONE computer. It has drives C and D.
I want to back up from the D partition.
As you can see from the screenshot, it does not
show the drive in the source location, and it
should, as per this quote from the help file:
"On the Select Files to Back Up screen:
* Select the icon for the device that has the files you want to back up:
* My ComputerWith subselectors and check
boxes for all of the files and folders of every
internal hard drive, hard drive partition, and external drive "
This is the same as what it says in the user manual on page 10:
Sourcethe computer files and folders that
you want to copy to the backup target for backup
protection. The backup source can be any internal hard drive,
hard drive partition, or any:
External storage drive
Supported cloud service account
Also, it is supposed to do continuous (at
least hourly) backups as per the user manual:
WD Backup software automatically backs up any:
- New file that was created in or copied to a
backup-protected device or folder
- Existing backup-protected file that was changed
This protection is automaticthe WD Backup
software does it for you without any
action on your part. Just leave the backup
source and target devices connected to
Note: Whenever you disconnect and reconnect a backup target or source
device, the WD Backup software rescans the
backup source device for new or changed files
and resumes automatic backup protection according to the schedule.
So my original issue remains: Why doesn't my
software me the option of choosing a backup
source ON MY EXISTING COMPUTER from anyplace other than the C drive libraries?
Why don't you just make it so that the
existing, and much better, Smartware software
will recognize the newer My Passport drives?
