HI.I'm thinking of transfering all my documents,music,photos,video to an external hdd,Due to a slight hickup with desktop,Running windows 7.
Now is this a good or bad idea,Then all what would be on the C dice would be windows and all my programs etc.
If its going to be a good idea what would be the best way to access the folders from the external hdd,Would it be possible to access then through the existing libraries in windows 7.
I'm open to suggestions any help would be appreciated.
Instead of transferring all the MY folders to an external HDD why not just install a internal HDD and move them to that. As I have a smallish (128GB) SSD I have done this. Only Windows 7 and programs are on the c drive everything else is on two 1TB drives which are internal. I have a third 1TB external HDD which I use fore backup.
This will show you have to move the My Documents folder but the same process applies to Music/videos/pictures.
Well my drive was getting a bit full,I had a lot of photos on there as I do a lot of photography etc.And of course I have a 5year old granddaughter must have thousands of her,Just needed a good sort out.
I might put all my photos now on ext hdd and maybe my music.
Things will look a lot better then.Thanks for your thoughts and help.
