Automated backup software blue-screened my XP. Uninstalled and reinstalled web version of back up software - backs up most BUT NOT ALL files, therefore worthless. Also made my computer sluggish and unstable. WD tech support recommended just doing manual backups.

Connected it to the hub, the computers on the network found it with no problem.
