  • If the MyBook drive is connected to your PC via USB, you can select it as a backup destination when configuring your backup plan. If the MyBook drive is connected via eSATA, it won't be seen as a valid destination unless you create a Network Share on the drive and then use Centralized backup (from a Hub PC) to configure backup for all computers to point to the location of the Share.
    If the drive is connected via USB and is not seen by OneCare, then you may have installed the WD backup software which is blocking OneCare from using the drive.
    If you are unable to configure backup to use the drive and can't determine why, please contact OneCare support.
