External USB HD with data

Hi all

I would like to switch from internal to external HD.

But my USB HD is full of Videos, music and photos I need to mantain. Is there a way to pass to external without deleting existing files?

Thanks

The risk is there.  I think you need to backup your files with a $50 USB drive.  At least borrow one, or borrow a computer that has this amount of free space and back them up.

 

Hi all

Anyone knows how ATV behave with an USB HD with a partition in it?

I mean I make a partition to use as it was internal HD and the rest of the HD I use as if it was external

Possible?

If you opt to use the external drive as primary storage (iTunes syncing) all data from the drive will be removed, and a single partition will be created.
