As well as two up to date laptops in the house we have an older but still useful computer. This is used daily by myself but is now running very slow. i have cleaned it etc but it is simply pretty full up. We have itunes on it as well as all our photos. Itunes has alot of videos etc for the kids so takes up alot of memory.
Someone has suggested I get an external HDD as i do not want to replace the computer as we have the two good laptops. I presume this would be the most economical solution.
Not sure how this would work. Would i be able to put the whole of the itunes program on it rather than the main computer and then just plug in when we want to use itunes.
Does anyone do this already. I know alot of people use the external HDD's as back up but I am thinking of just transfering all the itunes and photo programs on so that there will be alot of free space on the main computer. Would this work or am I not understanding what these external HDD's are for.
Also if itunes was on the external HDD would we then be able to just plug it in to a laptop if we wanted and transfer data etc to our ipods that way.
Thanks in advance for any help. I appreciate it.
