Question on Wetern Digital external hardrive.

  1936 10:24 17 Jan 2009

I am trying to learn how to use a WD external hardrive with Retrospect.
The WD hard drive instructios show three buttons.
1. Power.
2. Manual backup button.
3. Automatic backup button.

When I press number 1 it lights up. Nothing happens when I press either of the other buttons.

Pamy. Sorry but I could not see where "Click here" took me because WD support appears non existant.

Here is a short review

The Dantz Retrospect Express software that Western Digital bundles to take care of backup chores installed easily as well, though Retrospect has a steep learning curve. The wizards launched by the Backup On Demand (immediate backup) and Automatic Backup (scheduled backups) buttons found on the front of the drive are easy enough to follow, but you'll want to spend some time with the PDF MANUAL

If you go to click here and scroll down the page you will see many WD Manuals that you can download. You will nead PDF software installed to read it.

There is a free Update to Retrospect Express on their Website. It'll not make much difference but plugs a couple of risks that have arisen lately.

As mentioned above, You will need PDF software installed to read it.
