One of the pitfalls of externals is they tend to be less reliable than internal storage. This is why we copy our files to the external so we get backup copies.
-> If you move your files to only exist on the external this VIOLATES the very idea of backup. There is only that one copy and no backups.
Well hello from Europe, (Croatia)
Thank you in advance for any given information.
I work as a translator, so I have a lot of software related to machine translation, a few other special pieces of software dedicated to translation craft.I am a Croatian born but French-schooled.I translate-French-English so , along with my music and some 3000+ photos 12 mpx resolution made me run out of space on my laptop.To say the truth the system is good, I ve got 6 GB of RAM so It handles all my needs nicely but now I have to free the space circa 1 TB from my Toshiba Satellite to the "Seagate Backup Plus Slim" size 2 TB it's a DVD of a moderate size and I hope I made a good choice of buying Seagate since they come in a lot of PC's as built-in DVD's.
So question No.1 :since I want to move all my documents from the Toshiba Sarellite to the Seagate 2T just leaving on the PC the operating system, my linguistic software and a reasonable amount of documents are there some procedures to respect in order not to lose the precious data.Are there some protocols in place that I should know of or I can send it (the data) as it comes first on my computer?
2.nd question.Even this Seagate is portable I intend to use it any time I use the PC as a partion for itself is it OK or is it no good for the drive?
