Should I use WD SmartWare that comes with MyBook Essential External HD
I bought a 500GB MyBook Essential External Hard Drive about a year ago and only got around to opening it last night. I've read a couple of comments about being wary of WD Smartware. What are the alternatives to installing that?
I'm on the Welcome screen with three choices (1) back up files (2) set up drive and (3) retrieve a backup. I don't need to do (3), but wondering which of the others to choose. I would like to use the HD for both backup and for storing photos and music.
I want to use this on my aging PC using Windows XP.
Thanks in advance for any advice on this.
