WD MyBook WE 1TB and Windows8 "File History" - Can it be used

I have a 1TB MBW (While and White light). Other than the WD Backu software no longer working on Windows 8.1, everthing else is running fine. However when I try and use it as a drive for Windows 8 “FIle History” (aka Time Machine for Windows", the system does not recognise the network drive as a dirve I can use. Any sugestions?

Hi Andrew, do you have the My Book White light mapped on your Windows 8 PC? See the link below for more information.
