Warning: This may be a dumb question.
I have a large amount of data stored on an external HD. I want to copy it to another external HD for safety purposes. It will be nearly 2 TB. The last time I did this (with less data), it took almost two days. I realize that is a lot of data to copy. I used a laptop running Windows 7. It isn't a particularly powerful laptop, perhaps just a dual processor. And I am not a hardcore laptop guy as I much prefer using my desktop. My real question is what power options do I set my laptop at so it won't shut down or go to sleep? I'm not quite certain that is an issue.
If you have any recommendations on how to speed up this process, I'm all eyes.
