Hi everyone, How do I transfer files and folders to a new drive because the old drive is very small capacity. I dont want to transfer every file and folder because some of them are corrupted, I want to transfer mainly all documents and pictures. Thanks.

Is this an external drive or fitted drive ?

Hi skidzy, Its an internal fitted drive.

Can you not just drag and drop the files to the drive.

Hi skidzy, by dragging and droping wont it just crate a link rather then the file it self? I have not actually tried it yet but what you are saying will work?

Or right click the doc/pic in question and sendto the drive.

Drag and drop should send the file to the drive.Ive never had a problem doing this to an external drive that i use to back up the docs and pics.

Hi skidzy, I will try as you suggest and will let you know of the outcome in the next day or two. Thank you for your help.
