I have purcahsed a new Windows 8 computer to replace my Windows XP computer, which I had backed up on my My Passport Essential using WD Anywhere backup software. I have been informed by WD that this software is not compatible with Windows 8 and that I should google “free windows 8 software” to find replacement software.
I find this to be an unusual response from a company that continues to make backup drives. Most companies would not desert their customers in such a manner. What backup software that is compatible with Windows 8 does WD now offer on a complimentary basis for customers who have purchaed its drives? How can that software be accessed by those customers?
