Question about Apple MacBook 13"White /2.0Ghz Intel Core2 Duo White/2GB (2x1gb)/80GB/SuperDrive (Z0DT) Mac Notebook
I accidently dropped a (selected all) large iMovie file from my external drive onto my desktop and all the clips seemed to pan across the screen - - I deleted them but could not find my desktop folders. Did they bet kicked out of my computr somehow? no change in my HD folders, apps, etc.
Check in 'trash' if they are there, then simply drag back onto the desktop.

Determine how much space you need.
The first step in backing up your hard drive is to figure out how much space you will need to back up all of your files.
You can do this in a couple of ways.
Find out how large the hard drive is on your computer first to see if you can back up the whole thing. Click on "My Computer," right-click the "C" drive and select "Properties."
This shows the approximate size of your hard drive, how much space is actually taken, plus the space used by your operating system.
If your hard drive size is manageable (the space actually taken), back up the whole thing.
Your second option is to create a file called "Backup" and copy all of your important files into it.
Right-click on the folder once everything is copied over and choose "Properties" to find out the size of the folder.
This is how much space you will need to back up your important files only.
Choose a backup method.
Choose either an external hard drive, data disks (CDs, for example) or use an online backup service.
Plug the flash drive or the External Hard drive into your computer's rectangular-shaped USB drive.
Wait for Windows to recognize the system.
Windows operating systems use "plug and play" technology, which means that computer peripherals like USB flash drives can be recognized instantly by the system without further need for device configuration.
Open the drive on your computer.
Open the "My Computer" directory if using Windows XP or the "Computer" directory if using
Windows 7 or Vista. Locate the flash drive letter and icon under the section named "Devices with Removable Storage." Double-click the flash drive icon to open it.
Transfer files to the flash drive.
Click the "Restore" button in the top-right corner of the "Computer" or "My Computer" directory to shrink the window so that you can view your computer's desktop background.
Open the folders or locations of the files which you want to save to the flash drive.
Click and drag with your mouse each of the files and folders you want to save to the flash drive over to the empty space in the "My Computer" or "Computer" window.
Release the mouse button to let the files "drop."
Close the windows and directory locations when finished.
Save files directly onto the flash drive. From an open file (i.e. text, spreadsheet, image files. etc.), click the "File" menu and "Save as" option.
Select the "My Computer" or "Computer" directory in the drop-down menu at the top of the "Save As" box. Double-click the flash drive letter under the "Devices with Removable Storage" section.
Click the "Save" button to save the file onto the flash drive.
Close the windows and files when finished
Hope this helps.

Plug the external hard drive into your laptop or desktop computer.
Most external hard drives do this through a cable connecting the hard drive to the USB outlet on a computer.
Plug your external hard drive into a wall outlet if it receives power from an AC adapter rather than your computer.
Click on the "My Computer" icon on your desktop, and open the external hard drive.
It will be located under the USB connecting drive, which is labeled with a letter ranging from "E:" to "K:".
Open the folder on your external hard drive where you would like to save the photographs.
usually in my documents my pictures or if you want to save them to a specific spot so as not get them mixed up.
Create a folder if one is not present right click in my documents select new folder and name it lets say my pics 1
Move this window to the bottom right corner of your screen to be used in future steps.
Open the folder on your home computer where the files are being stored that you wish to transfer to the external hard drive.
These may be on the desktop, in "My Documents" or elsewhere in your computer.
If you are unsure where they are located, you can always search for them by file name by going to "Start" then "Search."
Right-click on the photo file, and select "Cut."
Click on the window showing your hard drive files to bring it into use on the screen.
Right-click on the white space in the window where you would like to transfer the files, and select "Paste."
Your files have now been deleted from their original location and transferred to your external hard drive in the folder you selected
hope this helps
