WD Smartware Purge feature development

Hi there. I understand there is no purge feature for WD Smartware. Is a purge feature in development and planned for release? If so, is there a launch date, and will it be available on an update? The lack of this basic feature costs me a lot of time sorting out my back-up drive. I guess i could just find another software to use that has this feature, as i doubt i’ll be able to return the drive.

Hi there,

This seems like a good suggestions to post on our ideas boards, please check on this link so get there and post this suggestion:


That’s ok. I’ve uninstalled the software now and using freeware PureSync instead. Much easier to use as purges your deleted files from your backup.
