Question about Computers & Internet
I don't have the slightest idea how to copy all My Documents to my removable disk. I can copy one at a time but that is going to make me crazy.
I found a removable disk lying around the house -- small, bought at Staples office supply
On the disk I found ''Library XML document 2,489 KB'' on it. I double clicked on that thinking it would help. It started to go to the web but that made me nervous so I stopped that.
What is the XML thing? Is that something someone copied onto the disk or did it come with it and I am supposed to use it?
How do I do a mass copy from My Documents to the removable disk? If you can help I would be very happy.
Okay, assuming you have your removable disk attached to your computer and a drive letter is assigned to it (let's say K: for example) - open up Windows explorer and click on My Documents on the left side - then hit Ctrl-A - you should now see everything in the My Documents folder is now highlighted on the right side - now right click over the highlighted items and choose (left-click) Copy from the popup menu - this will copy EVERYTHING in your My Documents folder -
after the copy completes (could take a while if you have a lot of items) then in Windows Explorer click on the drive letter of the removable drive (K: in my example) - then right click over the area on the right and choose Paste - this will now put all the copied items to the removable drive
A few things to consider
- you didn't specify what kind of documents you're looking to copy so the instructions above will copy EVERYTHING under my documents - this includes My Pictures, My Videos, etc. and any and all folders or files under My Documents
- also this procedure COPIES the files to the removable drive - leaving the original files intact on your hard drive - if you want to MOVE them to the removable drive then choose Cut instead of Copy in the step above
