I bought a highly recommended Western Digital My Book Essential external hard drive to backup image files, then discovered that the WD software doesn't support .dng files. Is there any way to get around the WD software and backup .dng files to the WD external drive? I'm using PS CS5.1, version 12.1 x32 on a PC with Windows XP professional.
The backup software should allow you to select all files, instead of a filtered list. But having said that, if it don't, then you could easily just use windows explorer and drag the files yourself. Using a backup drive's software is just for convience to make it easier on the owner to backup the files. It is not required to access the drive. As I said, you can use windows explorer or you could use the backup software that comes with windows and let it do a full backup, if the drive is large enough. So, you do have options.
Tried your suggestion and it worked. Thanks, I really appreciate your help.
You're more than welcome...
