Just bought a WD My Passport Essential SE 1 TB. When I install the SmartWare I don’t think it is seeing the passport drive and the backup and retrieve tabs are inactive.
I have the drive plugged into the USB hub of a network connected drive. It works OK when plugged directly into a PC but not when connected via a network drive through a wired router…
Can anyone tell me if there is way to use the smartware with the passport drive plugged into a network drive? I really want this drive to be available to all of my computers without needing to leave one of them on all the time. I had hoped connecting to an Ethernet connected external drive would have solved this.
Thanks for any help.
