I just got my 2TB external drive yesterday. At the recommendation of a hlp desk employee, I am attempting to "copy/“paste” my PC folders to the external drive. I was able to “copy/paste” the “My Music” folder without any problem.
When I attempted to do the same with my “pictures” directory, the copy function “found” in excess of 24K files (that’s when I cancelled the operation). There are 2500 pictures.
I’m not sure where the “copy” is finding all those files. A copy to my “dropbox” is just the 2500 pictures. Is there something about the external drive that would be causing this?
