Think i have too many photo graphs and also want to back up certain files. Whats the best and quickest way of doing it, especially photographs.

Have a Pictures Folder which has sub folders in it. Do i have to do each folder separately or can i just save the whole Pictures Folder. Tried copy and paste but it seems to get bogged down. What about drag and drop.

Thank you

You can do the whole base folder with copy-and-paste or drag-and-drop, they are the same function as far as the system goes. Don't have two copies running at the same time, that can cause a massive slow down.

I've got about 150GB of pictures on my computer, it would take a long time to copy them if that's what I had to do each time. Instead I use a backup program which copies any new files each time I run it. I use syncBack free, it does loads of tricks I use for backing up a lot more than pictures. There are easier programs around.

And get an external USB disk drive, they are loads faster than memory sticks.

Whatever backup medium you choose, just remember to keep it offsite somewhere.

An external hard drive is no good if its permanently attached to your computer and vulnerable to damage, fire or theft.
