Question

Western Digital My Passport Ultra - Windows XP Combatible?

Hello. I have been looking into buying a Western Digital My Passport Ultra 1TB external drive (2015 version). My PC currently runs on Windows XP but it will be upgraded to Windows 10 later. I want to backup the PC as it stands now, upgrade it, and then transfer the files over. So, is the latest version of My Passport Ultra compatible with Windows XP? Would I have to do something to make it compatible?

I know the 2013 version of My Passport Ultra works with Windows XP. Is it also compatible with Windows 10? Any thoughts are appreciated. Thanks!

Compatible. But what is this about XP upgrade to 10?

There is no known procedure or supported upgrade from XP to 10. I've only seen the XP replaced with W10.

Bad Wording:)

Sorry, that is just bad wording on my part. I know going from XP to 10 means a fresh install of Windows.
