Greetings. In a recent update to WD Smartware, I found that a new backup program had been installed with an icon placed on my desktop labeled “WD Backup”. I used it for about a month and did not like it because of the lack of control it gave me and the lack of visibility of the files being backed up. I discovered that the old WD Smartware was still in my WD Folder (Windows 10) and I have started using it. My question is- WD Backup is in my computer’s startup folder to run automatically when I power on my computer. Will WD Backup create a ssecond backup of my files, or will it recognize WD Smartware and not creat a second set of backups? Also (and I think tnhis a dumb question) Do I need to leave the WD Smartware window open in order for it to backup, or may I close the window?
I sincerely thank you for you time in assisting a senior citizen trying to keep up with things LOL
