I recently bought a WD passport for school because I am planning on saiving files that are multiples GB’s and I would rather have them on My WD rather than my computer so I dont fill up my hard drive so quickly. So I am saving these files into a folder and then sync them onto the WD. All goes smoothly the first time. I will call these synced files “Files A”. So now I go to delete Files A from my laptop so make more room so I can now create Files B. When I go to add File B to my laptop using the add file button on the left hand of the screen, Files B will then be saved to the WD, but Files A will then be deleted. Why is my WD syncing the enitre folder where I store these files and removing data which isnt there (File A). ? Isnt there a way to just add files without removing files that are not on my laptop anymore? doesnt that defeat some of the purpose of an external hard drive?
If I am unclear in my story please let me know.
Thanks for the help,
