I just built a new rig for my brother, and when I brought it over to his house, I got a peek at his external storage and backup. He has 4 external drives, of various sizes, with about 1.5 TB of total memory used.
I suggested combining the data to 2 drives, mounting them internally (he has room for them) and then backing everything up to an external, that will also back up his other desktop and laptop in the house. Can I add a drive that already has data on it, and format it to the new computer without losing data?
OS is win 7 pro
any other thoughts or insight would be appreciated.
