Good morning, I just bought the TB My Book Essentials on Sunday. When I I wouldn't trust WD Smartware for backup requirements. Short version: Western Digital's refreshed My Book Essential external hard drive provides a simple, unobtrusive, and relatively inexpensive. Elegant design. This book-like shape takes up minimal space on your desk and allows two or WD SmartWare - A control center for your drive that gives you the power to: Protect your data automatically - Relax. Your data is secure. Automatic .
Protecting business files such as reports, client and customer information from falling into the wrong hands is very essential for a successful business, so password-protecting your Western Digital external hard drive is a vital security measure. Protected files remain secure until you enter the password. If the device is powered with AC power, plug the power cable into an electrical outlet. Go to the Western Digital Downloads page link in Resources. Select your external hard drive from the Downloads section and click the "WD SmartWare Software" link to install the program.
Recover data from the inaccessible Western digital hard drive To recover data from the Western digital hard drive when it cannot open due to 'No writable WD SmartWare partition found' error, you can try EaseUS free data recovery software. It works well to retrieve data from lost partition. Here, if you are using Mac, just download the Mac version. After it completed, a deep scan will automatically launch in order to find more files.
After the scan, preview and choose the files you want. Finally, click "Recover" button to retrieve them back from WD hard drive.
Step 2. Reformat Western digital hard drive using disk management tool After restoring all your data, you can try to reformat WD external hard drive using disk management tool to fix the 'No writable WD SmartWare partition found' issue.
Open disk management tool. It typically has a black bar indicating unallocated space.
Right-click on the black bar to see a menu of available options. Left-click on New Simple Volume.
I normally recommend these drives to home and small businesses for backup devices. In fact I tend to find this software causes some issues on servers.
I wish Western Digital would give a more automated process of removing the Virtual CD drive when you first plug in the device. Plug the device into a computer but not on a Server. When you first plug it in it is going to ask you to install some software. To do this go to this website.
Once there you have to select the version of WF Mybook you own. In my case it is just the plain jane MyBook drive. Click wether you are on a PC or Mac.
I chose PC. You are going to need to click the utilities button on the right side of the screen See screenshot 6. Clicking on the utilities button should bring you to this page.
