Hi Folks. I have a problem that’s driving me crazy!! Hope someone here can help.
I’m trying to transfer the entrie contents of my 1TB internal drive to an external hard-drive, so I can take my HDD with me on holiday. Everything on the internal drive is under one main folder called ‘Video’ with many subfolders.
Firstly I tried copying this entire ‘Video’ folder to the external drive via the media player, but it crashes / locks up half way through. I’ve since tried just doing smaller subfolders at a time rather than the entire ‘Video’ folder, but same deal.
If I try to then resume the copy I obvioulsy get the message that the folder already exists and do I want to overwrite it. There is a ‘yes to all’ feature, but no ‘no to all’ feature. This means I have either have to rewrite everthing again which will again take forever and will inevitably result in another crash, or I have to sit there clicking ‘no’ to each individual re-write which will also take forever.
I’ve tried using a ‘sync’ program via the PC so that only the files that weren’t copied prior to the crash are copied, but via the PC I’m getting transfer speeds of <1MB/sec, so this will take days.
Any ideas for me? Why does it keep crashing? Surely there must be a simple way of doing this that won’t take days???
