Question about Computers & Internet
In the first place the external hard drive is not made for use as main drive ..but just for aditional storage and backup...You will never be able to install an operation system that works on it ...so if you need more drive space just add another Hard drive either on Ide or sata ..and there are available these days very large ones on both kinda controllers..Or just replace it with another one on the same specifications for the plug and power plug ..only larger in capacity ...
The external one if you already bought it ...use it to copy the files you do not want to keep in computer so make more space available ..
The method is to attach it on the computer ..either on firewire or USB ...(there are only these kind ) and after that you will find it in My computer folder like another drive...Single one if you do not partitioned it ...or multiple new ones if it has more than one partition on it ..The letters of the newly attached Hdd will be other than the ones used by your internal one ...usually the following ones in the alphabet except the ones already used..
after that just cut and copy files on it .You can reattach it when ever you need to store more data that you do not use every day ..
If you have more questions add a comment under my answer..
