About 6 months ago i bought an external hard drive for the first time a WD elements and put a few thousand photos on it that had been stored for a long time on my old computer. This computer is now playing up so i want to store the rest of my newer photos on it. The old photos are still on the old computer as well at the moment.
If i plug in my external drive first and then go to explore and find my pictures can i just drag the my pictures folder to the external drive. Will they all get put on again or will it realise alot of them are already on and just put the newer ones on about 300 photos in total.
I am not fully sure which were put on initially and i may have missed a few out so i would rather not indivivually drag files across as i would not know for sure if they were already on.
I am not very technical when it comes to files and folders so want to do the easiest way so that i do not loose any without duplicating them all. I have noticed the are all JPEG files if that helps in any way.
Thanks for any advice you can give. Hope i have made sense.
