Welcome to Tom's Hardware Forums!
Treat it as any other hard drive. Connect it to a computer, select the files you want to delete, and delete. The 'My Passport Essential SE' is just an external drive, USB 2.0
If the files are password protected, you will need the password as well as Admin rights.
Delted the files and rebooted to be sure Smartware recognized the changes. All is good. Thanks.
