Backup Software for Your ComputerJanuary 21, 2016
Why Fix Your Computer?January 21, 2016
Here’s another backup solution that might work great for you. It includes the hardware and software for a one purchase backup solution.
How does it work?
- Purchase a Western Digital My Passport Ultra Drive. Purchase it locally or from an online vendor.
- Plug the included external hard drive into your computer with the included USB cable.
- The “WD Backup” software comes installed on the external hard drive. You can also download it from here: http://download.wdc.com/wdapp/WDBackup_1.2.5721.28811.zip
- Unzip the file into a folder and double click the .exe file to install. It works like a charm.
Follow the instructions that come with your drive to create a backup of your important files. Depending on how many files you have, it may take from several minutes to several hours to complete a backup.
NOTE: Only the “My Passport Ultra” or “My Passport Ultra Metal Edition” include backup software.
For drives like the “WD Elements Portable” and even non Western Digital drives, try out a 30-day trial of their “WD SmartWare Pro” automatic backup software. The standard software license will work on up to 3 computers. The premium software license will work on up to 10 computers.
