What have i got?

I have a silver drive that says “WD My Passport” on it.  1 TB, USB 3.0.

Now…saying that, I screwed up and made a mess of the backup , and I’ve been looking through this forum but:  What’s the “Passport Ultra”?  “Passport Essential”?  I don 't know which instructions to follow. Mine is Model #WDBBEP0010B-SL3.

Clever me, I figured out the “SL-3” thing, but otherwise I’m confused.  I want to download the correct software, and erase this drive.  Help!  This next time I’ll RTFM…


I did a search on Google search and the closest model to the one that you posted is the “WDBABM0010BBK”. You can see all of the available downloads for this model on the link below.

Most of the Passport models come with Smartware included, so you can backup your files automatically, check below for the steps to use it.
