" WD Sync could not save your data"

I tried to open up a file but the messaqe " WD Sync could not save your data" keeps popping up. I just opened up the file last week and it was fine. How can I retrieve the information again? At some point the file was saved so I don't understand how it disappeared. It is an excel spreadsheet.

Hi-

You can actually try to reopen file when you click on File "open", then look for recent documents, then open the file if you can find it on the list, one other thing is to restore computer from the date you can actually open the file, but if you have a backup file for it, then restoring will be the last option.

Keep me posted if you need more assistance. Have a nice day!!

I was just using my 500GB WD Passport Essentials to store data I had in my PC. Everything was going fine. I was cutting from the PC and pasting to the WD. Suddenly, when I tried to paste one of the files,...


It's hard to say from your description what the problem is but the first thing to do is determine the condition of the drive. You can check if there are problems with the drive using the free trial version of http://www.hdtune.com/

If it checks out ok then you can try to recover your data with Recuva it's free http://www.piriform.com/recuva

Or if that does not work you will need data recovery help. A good choice for low cost and fast data recovery is http://FreeDataRecovery.us

They do data recovery remotely over the Internet from a boot cd that you download and the best part is they just ask you to make a donation after they recover your data.

Western Digitial Passport Sync Software


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".

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.

WD 500MB is recognized and I can access most folders, but others give me DRIVE MUST BE FORMATTED message. ANy ideas what could cause this? Everything was fine just a week ago.


Most likely drive has some bad sectors and it's quite possible that it could die very soon. First of all backup all files you can. Then try to use some data recovery software to scan the drive for lost folders and save found files.

I don't know how to check the files on my WD passport. I'm looking just for pictures and itunes. Can you tell me how this is done?


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.

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

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

I cannot access western digital 1000 gb


Here is a tedious solution that works. Use MioNet and move all the files you want to keep to another drive or another computer, then delete everything from the MyBookWorld. Remove MioNet from all computers. Next access the drive's built in Shared Storage Manager with a web browser. Check the pdf manual on the install disk to find out how. Create a new shared folder and then move everything you want on the drive into the new folder WITHOUT using MioNet. Map the shared folder as a network drive for easy access. Never, ever, EVER use MioNet again and all should be good. The drive works, the MioNet software does not.
