how to delete files on wd passport using their WD Smartware

I've got a MY PASSPORT and am using WD's back-up software, SMARTWARE version 1.5. I am trying to delete files on the unit, but am unable to find any way to do so. I've read suggestions to just use Windows Explorer and locate files on the unit, but the software does not permit this kind of viewing of its file directories.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  1. I would avoid using proprietary file backup software which imposes restrictions on your normal Windows tasks.

    Uninstall SmartWare and backup manually using copy/paste in Windows Explorer. You'll be able to delete files okay too.
