I’d be interested to hear people’s views on the WD Discovery software bundled with My Passport drives nowadays. I’ve had a number of My Passports over the years, with different backup softwares, mainly WD Smartware, I think but the current one seems to be particularly restrictive and impenetrable. Can I really only set backups as part of a plan, so set to be done once a day/week/month or whatever? Is there no option just to do a single backup when you want to? I’ve attempted to back up two very large folders on it (containing the contents of a previous computer), but can’t see clearly that it’s done the second one at all, although there’s plenty of space available. I’m wondering whether to try a different software just to make sure I have got it all backed up. Would I be better off using WD Acronis True Image?
It all just seems to give me so much less in the way of options than the previous software did, and I can’t see what it’s doing at all.
