kbailey1965, it sounds like you used SmartWare or Time Machine to back up your computer and are now expecting this data to be accessible from WD Photos or WD 2go. Your backups are completely separate and are stored in a manner that keeps them from being accessed or modified except through your backup software.
To use WD Photos or WD 2go, you can copy data to your My Book Live by hand. Click on your WD QuickView icon, choose your drive, and click “Open”. A file browser window will come up and you’ll see a “Public” share. When you double click on this share, anything you copy to this folder will be accessible from WD 2go, and any photos you copy to the “Shared Pictures” folder will be viewable in WD Photos, after a delay for processing.
