I got my enclosure and hard drive set it up. Windows XP Pro directed me through formatting the hard drive. I ended up with on large hard drive with 300 gb.
Do I want to partition the hard drive? What is the advantage to partitioning it? How do I partition it? If I already put 30gbâ€™s on it is it too late to partition?
Is there an easy way to back up all of the files I created on the computer? Example all of my word processing files, all photos, all MS Office created files all movies etc. Currently they are everywhere on my computer.
The idea behind an external hard drive is to leave it off unless I am going to use it correct? There is no need to have it on if I am not using it right?
I have enough room to totally copy the exact contents of my desktop and lap top, but I donâ€™t really see the need to. I figure I have all of my created saved files and I can just reinstall windows if anything catastrophic happens? Is my thinking correct? Or should I back up the total contents of my hard drives?
