external hard drive how to ?
i have a Seagate 320gb external hard drive, that i use to back up all of my files. it has come in handy several times, and i am very glad i decided to buy it when i bought my system. anyway, it is now about 1/2 full, much of it with photographs. whenever i open it, it takes a few minutes to come up, because it is loading all of those files and pictures. is there a way i can keep this from loading all of this? i figure i have them in the wrong kind of file or something that should not be to hard to change. or, at least that is what i am hoping! i have always just right clicked, and created a new file, typed in a name, and went on from there. do i need to change the type of file, or is there a way to keep these from opening when i click on the drive from my computer? thanx.
