Question about Western Digital My Book Essential Edition (WDG1U5000N) 500 GB Hard Drive

1 Answer

Just bought Seagate 500mb external desktop drive. I am using it in conjuction with Paragon Back up. The idea was to delete most of the files from my Internal hard disc but will I lose these transferred files when Paragon does its later snapshot backup? Will I have to disconnect the drive from Paragon?

If you backup all the files to the external device,
and then delete them from your computer,
and then the external device "dies", what will you do, other than cry?

The whole point of "backup" is to have a SECOND copy of your files; not to keep your important files in only ONE location.

Seagate Freeagent external Hard drive won't increase free space when files are deleted?


How are you deleting the files? If you're simply moving them to the trashcan/recycle bin then they're still taking space on your drive. Try emptying the trashcan/recycle bin.
