Question about Toshiba 250GB TOSHIBA USB 2.0 PORTABLE EXTERNAL 25 250 GB Hard Drive
I really appreciate your response, however, you did not answer it in its entirety.
Can I edit the folders that I transferred to the external drive on the external drive or continue to edit them on the C drive? Then, I back them up correct?
The external drive I have, has an installed backup system. Is this prudent
to use that as my backup system or should I get the one you mentioned,
the EZbackup as well?
Thanks for your knowledgeable help, I do appreciate it.
This depends entirely on how the backup program you use works. Usually they will go with whichever file/folder has been edited most recently, so if you edit them on your backup drive, they will not be replaced by the ones on your C drive. It would probably be easier just to edit them on your C drive and let the backup program do all the transferring, though.
Also, if your drive comes with one, you should usually use it, and no, having two would be inadvisable because you would end up with two identical sets of your data on the same drive, which serves no logical purpose.
Hopefully that is a more exact answer!
