    sorry poeple , but a complete novice here.
    i have bought from asda the LaCie 500gb external hd cos the 3 ipods in the household seem to be takeing all the space on my pc.
    thought i would put all the itunes librarys onto the lacie, but as im sure most on here are aware its not at all that simple [for me anyway].
    in the end i decided and found that its a lot easier to move most of the contents from my c drive stright on to the lacie .
    so far everythings fine now , [after a few hic-ups].
    now have 80% left on c drive oppossed to just 15%.
    question.
    is there any reason i might have problems in the future doing this way.?
    cheers in advance

    It depends on what you moved, if it was data files (music, video, pictures, documents etc.) then you should have no problems (although don't forget you now need to back them up from the external drive) but if it was programs then you can have problems getting them to start up or having associated files types giving you an error message.

    thanks EndlessWaves.
    my documents, ENU , applications , common , are but a few,
    would program files be inadvisable as it takes a further 16GB from my c drive.
    thanks again.
