I have purchased a Western Digital My Passport for Mac 500 GB USB 2.0 Portable External Hard Drive
I am having trouble about this backup drive-or backups in general: i just want it to be a true external drive- NOT a backup constantly drive. I have carbonite, and this is truly just to give me more space.
Does anyone have experience with this- I want to go into this drive and be able to find my photos and movies easily- flipshare included- and when I picture using these drives, i picture it being just data, and difficult to find.
so basically my questions are:
- can this be used as an external drive and NOT backup (and I delete the files off my computer)
2 when they are on this drive, can I see teh pictures/videos in the flipshare or ipphoto format?
