Hi. I just got my first external hard drive today. It’s a G Drive mobile USB 1TB Mac formatted that has 2 cables.
OK, so I connected it to my MacBook, Time Machine kicked in and it seems like everything got backed up to the external, as I was notified when it was finished.
1.) I unplugged the drive and want to store it back in its original box for safekeeping. I will back up my stuff like once a week. Is it okay to store it back in the box so it doesn’t get damaged?
2.) How do I check the external to make sure it contains all my stuff?
3.) How do you set a password for it?
