I want to back up all of my documents to an external drive. I have tried by Right clicking om My Documents icon and then Send To but, on checking, the amount of used space showing appears to be so small that it appears that only the shortcut has transferred. What is the proceedure for transferring all of the data in the various folders in my documents please?
If you right click the icon on your desktop and choose 'send to' all you are doing is copying the icon. As €dstowe wrote, the easy way is to open my documents- edit-select all-edit-copy and then paste to your new drive.
