I have a 4gb memory stick which has some information on (folders & files)

I've updated the folders within "my documents" how do I update the memory stick now?

do i have to delete everything off it, then reload it? I got no idea really!!

can someone give me some advice please?

To be safe (assuming there's room on the stick) I would save the updated files to the stick (with a different name) then, having made sure they will open OK, delete the old from the stick. Belt and braces, but one never knows!

It's a bit confusing for me, when i insert the memory stick, it comes up on J drive in my computer.

Do I right click on the folder in my documents and send it to J drive?

.Basically yes. Or you can open 2 windows, one fot the J drive and one for wherever you have the files you want to move across EG My Documents or whatever and you can either copy and paste each file across or drag and drop them.

Theres quite a few ways to do it and theres no one way thats better than another - in my opinion at least. When I've benn showing someone how to do this I show them the various ways of doing it, get them to try each one and make their own mind up as to which method suits them.

If you want to delete anything on your j drive you just right click on whatever you want to delete and go down to delete and left click on that.
