SOURCE: wd passport file customizing

If you open the Computer directory and identify the drive letter for the WD Passport drive, right-click on the drive folder and select properties. The properties tool for the drive will open showing several tabs. Select the Customize tab and you will see a heading for "use this folder type as a template" with a drop down menu. Here you can select different categories for the folder and apply it to subdirectories also by checking the box below. This should give the folders more of a vista look! If you want to personalize further and add your own images to the folder icons you can also do this here. If you don't select the apply to subdirectories option you can manually apply different styles to different folders in subdirectories. If you don't like the way things have turned out you can also restore the default settings.

Hope this answers your question.

Have fun

Check the Disk Manager in Windows to see if the drive is formatted and has a drive letter assigned.

How do I use a program ive just downloaded on this laptop


Hi
Usually the files you download for programmes are ".exe" or ".zip" files. In the case of ".exe" files they are either executable, in which case you need to double click on them and follow the instructions to install the programme, or they are self-extracting zip files where you again double click on the programme, it will ask you where you want the files expanded to, and once expanded you need to find the "Setup.exe" file and double click to install the programme. ".zip" files you have to expand manually and then double click the Setup.exe" file to install the programme.
Incidentally you must have administrator rights to install programmes, if you are a standard user, most likely, then you must either run the programmes as administrator (right click on the file and click "Run as Administrator" in the menu that comes up) or log off and log on as an Administrator with appropriate password.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
Cheers

My WD wants to install syn software. None of the files look like the files originally pulled for backup. My hard drive crashed and I need to restore to a new Hard drive - what do I do?


When you connect the drive, ignore the sync option. Do note in your "my computer" WD will have two drive letters (one is a read only drive) that contains the sync software. The other drive letter will be where you data is stored. If you used the sync software to backup your files; you need to install to get your data back. If you simply copied your data from one drive to another; the files should be there in their original form.

Did you download itunes form the Apple Official website? If not, click here to download (if so, don't do it again). After it's downloaded, go to the download folder and right-click on the itunes setup (itunes you just downloaded), click "Run" or "Open", don't select, "Open with" or "Autoplay". I hope this will help you install it.

If you have further problem, let me know.

Good luck.

Help to backup full computer programs & docs with WD Passport 160


Try going to the "Computer" icon and look for the external drive. Open the ext. drive folder and look for the InstallSeagateManager icon, the Application one. Double-click on it and it will allow you to install the software to do a backup on your new computer. First thing you should see is the Language Selection screen. I think you can take it from there!

Recover western digital passport "sync-data"


You need to have the WD Sync program on your computer; you can get it from your WD Passport, or, over the Internet. Once you have the software on your computer, you can synchronize. WARNING: Do not think that theyourWD 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".

The files you copied are the installed files which is installed by the install shield wizard(or setup file).The installed files do not contain the setup or install shield file. You can use the software by double clicking the .exe file (most probably by names starting with rtv or sym).if everything goes successfully symantes icon will appear on the task bar.

My Book 750 GB/GO


Hi Corson,

I've seen this type of issue before when a MyBook was connected to a legacy (1.1) USB port on an older computer or a laptop. Do you know if you're using a USB 2.0 port to connect to the drive?
