Capabilities of an External Hard drive
I was thinking of buying an external hard drive so I would have both a backup of my data, store more stuff, and a way to transfer things to other computers.
I was wondering what exactly I would be able to do with the hard drive. Could I plug it into my current computer, copy the entirely of my internal hard drive onto the external, and then plug that into some other computer and run everything like normal on that new computer?
Can things be saved onto the external hard drive and then just run off of it like normal, or do I need to transfer them onto an internal hard drive before I use them?
