I have a WD My Passport 1TB HDD. My wife had it hooked up to her laptop for backing up. After several months it showed the drive as almost full, but shouldn't have been any where near full. She aslo had trouble with the utilities constantly running and hogging her Win 7 laptop resources. Using task manager she could not get tasks to stop. She was never able to get it set to just do incremental backups nightly or changed files (no, I did not try it for her). She eventually copied all the files to Dropbox.
I have taken the drive and deleted all the files so all that remains is the utilities that came on it. Now for my question.
Is there any reason I shouldn't delete the utilities and reformat drive?
Thanks for the help.
