1. If I知 ON-LINE and in background I知 transferring files from my "C" and "E" drive to the new external "F" drive. Am I exposed to someone hacking into my system and copying some of my most critical stuff, like financial or credit card data. Or is the possibility of them "hacking"" in at any time a potential problem.
2. Some of what I致e seen on the Web says that the external drive SHOULD NOT BE LEFT HOOKED UP TO YOUR COMPUTER!! It should only be used if/when you want to back-up data. I was under the assumption that it was there all the time so when you modified a file or made a new one it would back it up after SAVE or SAVE AS.
3. If I go to My Computer and EXPLORE the new "F" drive there is NO file/folder hierarchy so I can access different things. I did do an actual move of a very big My Pictures folder and can access that OK, but I see nothing else on this disc. Is it possible that I need to move the My Pictures back and do a re-install of the disc.
THANKS IN ADVANCE!!
