Use a software program such as Acronis to completely backup your existing hard drive while it is working. Then when it dies you use the same program to install the backup you made to the new hard drive.

The program will put the backup on your external hard drive and use it in the future when the time comes to reload your new drive. The programs installs usb drivers so you will have no hassle using the external drive to reload the new drive.

That program has saved my sorry rear beaucoup times!!!!!!!!

I have a seagate1tb external hard drive where can i get free or reasopnable softwear to use for backup thank you


If you are using Windows 7 then you can use the Windows Backup process to make a System Image backup which can then be used to recover your system provided the image is written to either an external USB hard drive or to DVD discs.


If you have a different version of Windows, then you should try using one of the free Backup programs such as Easeus Todo Backup or Paragon Backup & Recovery Free - the links for these are below:

What Windows-compatible "backup" software can


You can format it directly from Windows XP going in My computer then right click on your drive icon and hit format. Don't change anything in the fields but put a check in quick format.

For your backup needs, Acronis are making very good data management softwares.

NO SOFTWARE IN THE BOX!!!!!


Place a hard drive in the enclosure, connect it via USB to the computer and the operating system should identify the drive.

If you are talking about the backup solution software that is supposed to be packaged with it, you might be out of luck. In this case turn your luck around by installing a backup solution. Or install/run Windows backup utility which maybe found on C: in VALUEADD MSFT NTBACKUP.

Well, you don't have to use WD's software...you can better backup software like Acronis..you can back any files you want, or, the whole computer with installed programs, operating system and all. Are you using WD software, or windows? You can just select the files you want to copy from the drive in Windows, and just copy them to the drive, you don't have to use WD software.

My external backup will not back up and to use I need product number.Where can I find it?


The my book essential only comes with a trial version of Memeo / WD Anywhere Backup, which can only be used for 30-days. Your only option to use the backup software with the drive, is to purchase it. However, you could use another software or alternatively manually copy / paste your data over to the drive.

If it's any help, windows also has a built-in backup and restore function.

WinXP - C:\WINDOWS\system32\ntbackup

Vista - Start > In the search bar, type: Backup. Open the executable.

Win 7 - Open my cumputer > right-click on your C-drive > select properties > select the 'tools' tab and select 'backup now'

Western Digital 1 TB only seems to have 30 day trial software and not necessary components to back up my system. Not like the video demonstrates.


No need to use third-party software, just make your backups with Windows Backup (if in Windows) or rsyn (in Linux).
you may also set a schedule to run those backups, and specify the folders wanted.
