Somewhere in the Settings menu on the software part of the drive - usually one drive letter down from the data storage area. I spent an hour last week converting of those to a standard drive so Windows backup could save to it and couldn't recommend them to anyone, I'm afraid.

insert your memory stick or your external drive / go to My Computer / right click your drive / go to properties / under the Security tab, just check the Full Control under permission / click apply then ok
