Hi guys and gals,
Thanks to everyone for their input. I decided to get this drive and I received it yesterday. It works perfectly straight out of the box. I transferred all my music (2103 files) over to it then, after making sure they were there and accessible, I deleted the files from my computer hard drive.
I am pleased to report then instead of the HD being about 3/4 full it is now showing about 1/3rd full. My computer now seems to be responding a bit quicker after I did a full service cleanup last night.
I am playing the music directly from the usb drive now and I think it is playing even better than it used to off the drive. Maybe the drive being quite full was starting to effect that as well.
I now have another question. I only have 2 usb ports on the front of my computer that I use for a small jump drive and my digital camera uploads but I have 4 spares on the back which are not easily accessible. If I plug the usb HDD into the back of computer, can I leave it plugged in when I turn the computer off and on or would I have to unplug it all the time?
Thanks to everyone for their help!
