Hi folks.I got a WD "My book Essential" external hardrive.I had been needing one for a while.I was gonna get acronis so I could back up my OS as well as my music files etc but this comes with "visual back up" which actually backs up your files etc for you.Does anyone have any experience with this one and any tips on how to get it to do a complete back up of my current C drive?Thank you.
The Western Digital software is pretty basic and not at all intuitive. I set one up about 3 months ago and found that the compressed files it produces are very awkward to access. The client bought Acronis TI which we both understand.
Personally I wouldn`t rate the WD Software and if I remember correctly it annoyingly pops up every time you plug the drive in. Took a while to work out how to stop that because you can`t remove the partition its set up on.
Hi Taff™, "you can`t remove the partition" I simply formatted mine but it wasn't partitioned. I saw a similar thread here a short time ago, regarding the partition, but I don't know if it was resolved. I will have a look for it.
