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

Whats the best way to transfer my infomation and programs to a newer computer


For content, if you don't want to transfer it all to a flash drive and then transfer it to the new machine, register for an account at any (or all, your choice) of the following sites:
Dropbox (2GB free)
https://drive.google.com/ (15GB free)
Welcome to OneDrive (15-23GB free)
Once the programs of your choice are downloaded and installed, use them to back up your personal files to the internet. Then, on the new computer, install the programs and allow them to sync. This will download them from the internet. Move the files out of the folders to free up space, wait for the removal to sync to the old computer, and go back to the old computer to move more in to be moved over. Repeat this as much as needed to have all of your files moved over.
For programs, transfer any installation files you still have (the program you download and then click to install) through the cloud storage programs from above that you choose, then use these .exe files to install to the new laptop. If you don't have the .exe files lying around, then you can either hunt them down individually on the new computer (in which case, make a list from your old computer) or use a service like
Ninite Install or Update Multiple Apps at Once (it's free, by the way) to mass download/install most common programs so that you don't have to go hunting for them.
For programs that were installed via disc, you're probably just going to have to install those on the new machine the old fashioned way. You cannot just copy/paste program folders (though it's tempting) because installing programs writes values to your computer's registry, which cannot be transferred and certainly don't tag along with the program files installed on the computer. These registry values are what tell the computer how to handle that installation, so while some programs MIGHT work, most will not work well or at all without.
Hope this helped!

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).

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!

Symantec antivirus corporate edition, getting it on my laptop without cd rom


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?
