Question about Western Digital Passport WDXML800UE (WDXML800UETE) 80 GB Hard Drive
WARNING: Do not think that yourWD Passport, using the WD Sync software, is a
backup drive; it is NOT !
As per the documentation with this device:
"synchronization software is intended to synchronize the data from a
computer to the drive (WD Passport) and SHOULD NOT be used as backup
software. To use this software properly, we advise that you do not wipe or
erase the data from the internal hard drive (computer) and resynchronize, as
this will cause the data that WD Sync stored to the Passport to be deleted."
This is why you are hearing so many people saying that they are deleting the
WD Sync software, reformatting, and using the WC Passport as a true backup
drive where you can actually see the files that you are backing up, rather
than a bunch of unrecognizable sync files that likely don't have all the files that you thought you "backed up".

You plug the drive into a usb port.... if it doesn't automatically pop up to allow you to access the drive... go to my computer (or computer on vista) and go in there... it should appear as another drive. double click and you are in the drive.
