I’m Chris and I use the My Wirelesss Pro in the field and at home to do an initial backup of SD cards containing video and photos for clients. I have a 3TB version which is getting full, and honestly stopped using it when it started behaving unpredictably. I learned from reading the DPReview article that the drive was doing incremental backups, which somehow I missed reading in the manual or with two lengthy interactions with WD tech support - it might be nice to be able to select that as an option or not.
The drive still seems to have some erratic behavior, especially if you leave a copied disk on the drive, reuse the disk, and try to make a new copy with the new material. I have one directory where it took the old files, renamed them as backup files with new creation dates, and wrote the new files into the same directory. I’ve also had an experience where it copied two different cards into the same directory - wondering if it is possible two cards might have the same serial number?
I was hoping that it would provide a reliable and safe backup in the field, and until I get the cards individually archived, but unfortunately so far it has not been reliable enough to do that. Hoping the new firmware will address some of these issues, and I’d be interested to hear if others are experiencing anything similar.
I don’t have unlimited time to sort through beta firmware issues with every product I buy, but this one looks promising enough that I would like to get it working!
