I’ve successfully used my WD My Book Essential in the past. I’ve not used it for a while.
I have had some virus issues lately with my laptop, and I’m not sure if a setting got messed up, or some anti-virus won’t let the program start, or what - but I went to copy some more ebooks onto the Essential, and the SmartWare won’t load.
I can unlock my drive, and see the files in it - however the files are in a LOT of folders, and it appears as though it’s copied things over repeatedly - each folder has the User and Desktop and other ‘parts’ repeatedly.
I want my SmartWare program to run again so I can find my ebooks folder, and add some to the folder…
and I’d like to know if I used the device/software properly, as most of my 1T is used up, and I honestly don’t think I have that much data on there, but I think it might be duplicating things (that I didn’t back up right…).
What is the easiest way to fix these things? I need to move some stuff off my laptop, soon, and want to make sure I have a good backup that I can access.
Thanks in advance.
(I’m not very hardware literate, though I can find my way around a bit… .thanks for the patience when answering me)
