Western Digital� My Passport� Portable USB 3.0 Hard Drive, 500GB, Silver 1 5 1 1
Too many installation problems I was forced to return the drive because I had installation problems on three different Win 7 computers (2 desktops, 1 laptop). The installation instructions are for Win XP, which means you do not have the option to stop Win 7 from auto installing drivers. After the software is install you can't uninstall the Windows driver to install the drive's included driver. I'm sure there is a way to do this, but it is not explained how with the included bundled software. The drive would work on initial installation, but once it is disconnected and restarted problems cropped up. It locked up one of my computer so bad I had to kill the power to shut it down.

  • Your data is not just data, it's your family photos, your financial documents, your music - your life. You know you should back it up, but many of you don't. We understand. We've talked to lots of people and we've heard the reasons why people don't back up - there's no time; it's a pain; their data's not organized; they don't know how. Using what we've learned, we developed easy, automatic backup software we hope you'll really use because we understand the importance of your data.

    You're up and running in a few simple steps. Once you set it up, you can forget it because the rest is automatic.

    • Simply click "Start Backup" and WD SmartWare will automatically start backing up your files.
    • As your backup is running the category gauges will change color showing you the backup as it happens.
    • When finished, you'll see a status screen and information about your backup. You only have to do this once. After the first backup, your files will be backed up automatically every time you change or add a file.
  • It's always on the job.

    WD SmartWare is always watching your computer, so when you change a file and save it, create new files, add new pictures, movies, or songs, WD SmartWare will instantly back them up.
