I have a wd internal drive "WDC WD1002FAEX-00Y9A0 ATA Device
" with Acronis backup software. Plus 2 of these "Hitachi HDS721010CLA332 ATA Device
". My antivirus program is microsoft essentials. I uninstalled the program then turned off ME then reinstalled the program and the same thing happened.
Thought buying a compatible external drive wouldn’t be a problem.
Its a "Western Digital WD 4TB Black My Passport Portable Hard Drive " (WDBYFT0040BBK-WESN ). When I connected it it loaded drivers. I opened the drive and installed the wd discovery software and it never worked.
Is this a conflict with my acronis software? I ended up using the acronis software to backup today and uninstalled the wd discovery until I can figure out how to get it working properly.
