just bought a new computer and it came with an external hard drive, which I have never used.

I guess the main use is to back up docs in case of a crash. what are the other uses?

I burn alot of movies. could it be used for this?

Nice, a new PC bundled with an external USB!!

Personally I`d use it to backup sensitive data, and store the external drive away from your computer.

Otherwise, sell it and get come cash for it!!

Oh yeah, :thumbsup: to the board!

If all else fails, hit the reset button.

You can use that external drive just like it was a hard drive inside your computer...store whatever you want on it, it won't hurt a thing. Music, photos, videos, word documents, private/seceret data...anything!

If it's a USB drive, then you can put files on it, take it to a friends house, plug it into their computer and then download the files to their computer (like a portable memory stick, only WAYYYYY bigger!).
War produces veterans, wounded both physically and mentally. They have sacrificed for us.....and it is now our job to help these veterans, as they have already helped us in ways we will never know, in ways that we cannot fathom, and in ways that we take granted every day.
