External hard drive for a laptop
Hi, I have an Acer laptop, love it, works well etc. etc.
Only problem is I'm doing a design course so have lots of programmes running off it all the time - AutoCad, Sketchup, Adobe(s) plus others. With all my work plus a lot of music and photos I have pretty much filled its memory.
I was wondering if it would be possible to attatch an external hard drive and run my programmes from it?
I'm not much of a computer whiz but I'm guessing that would mean I could only use files from these programmes when it is connected? any ideas how I could get around this besides putting everything on the external hard drive and keeping it connected all the time? To be honest I dont move my laptop around that much, but it would still be useful to be able to.
