The spare hard disc I use for backing up. I have formatted the Disc so I know there is enough room on it.
After 7 hrs backing up each time, I cant complete the back up as my pc says there is not enough room on the back up drive even though the spare disc is bigger in space than the pc I am trying to back up.
Please help as I have no back up on my pc and I have lots of sentimental pictures and videos on it
its on my control panel and a flag also comes up saying there isn't enough space on the hard drive, I am currently compressing the hard drives c and d on my pc to hopefully save some space, not sure if I am doing the correct thing just trying what seems to be logical to me.
I also am against 'compressing' drives as it seems to cause problems.
If it's the personal Data files in My Documents, Pictures, Videos, files etc. It's easier to just copy them to another drive and not use a backup program. You could copy a few folders over at a time if you have so many, then you wouldn't be stuck for over 7 hours waiting for all of them at once.
