Hi all, I have bought a 500GB Premium ES for $193 (new) the other day and I was wandering if all the folders with software that came inside the drive are necessary as I cant be bothered having them. I dont see the point. Also, that capacity LED ring, does anyone use it? I have seen the green version, I think its My Book essential ext HDDs. I have the 2 blue ring version. I tried safe removing by USB, etc and nothing would turn it off, except that I pressed the button for like 3 seconds and it was OFF. Sometimes I copy like 2GB across and then I cant remove it from the USB by windows. I am not sure if I would lose data by just unplugging the USB cable. Does anyone use the software that came with the HDD?
