Question about Dell Computers & Internet
I need to transfer files from an external harddrive to a Dell Pc on which I am running Windows vista home premium. It has a built in file transfer program but I don't know how to use it for an external harddrive.
Well you don't need to use a file transfer program. Just open "My Computer" then open the External Harddrive in one window and open the folder that you want to transfer to in another window. Then you can select the files you want and either drag them over to the folder. Or you can right click on each file then click on cut or copy and then paste them in the new folder. Or you can click on Edit at the top, select all, and then cut or copy and then paste them all in the new folder never needing the Transfer program. It is a pretty simple process, but if you have any further questions, please let me know. It is just like moving files from any other drive, such as flash or a cd.
