    Hey guys I have a quick question about my passport. I noticed when you click on it and open it that it has all these files on it. Can I delete those files to free up more space on it or do I need all those files? Here are the names of the files Autorun, autorun.inf, documentation, setup.exe, WD_Windows_tools, WDsync, Wdsynce.exe. Thanks guys.

    That is the auto backup stuff I believe. I deleted mine off an older WD drive because exe files are useless to me on a mac, therefore I didn't think my computer would miss them. :D

    Delete them quickly before your mac notices you've given it Windows files and sulks for days! ;)

    haha I hope this is true as I'm going to delete all that stuff. Hopefully my passport will still run afterwards if not yikes.
