Question about Computers & Internet
You plug it in to any USB drive and it should be detected automatically by your operating system as long as it is Windows 2000 or later.
Aalternatively, some come with encryption programs the lock down the data, which would require the installation of software in order to function.
Mostly though, you should be able to plug it in, wiat for it to install, and simply drag and drop files into it just as you would any hard drive.
Be careful, though, when removing them, because Microsoft uses a deceptive wiritng procedure which tells you the writing process has been completed long berfor it actually does complete. That is why Microsoft builds in a procedure for disconnecting USB devices so that it pushes the remaining writes to finish before telling you it is safe to remove the removeable drive.
