P.S. Randy,
I do one folder at time... because I have lots of pics and it would take hours upon hours upon hours to copy/paste them all at once.

Then I backup documents one folder at time too - as it would also take a long time.

On my external hard drive - I make folder for each backup, dated like so:
2016 03_17 backup pics
2016 03_17 backup documents
2017 06_12 backup pics
2017 06_12 backup docs...
Naming files this way keeps the folders in order by year AND by month & day. Once I have 3 backup folders - I then delete the oldest one and keep the only the newest 3 backups. This way I don't overfill my external hard drive.

Richard,

On occasion I have just "ejected" the flashdrive and then plug it in again and it works... BUT when they begin acting like that, I usually get a new one and backup everything fresh to the new one. I use flashdrives a ton for work... and I have found that it is ONLY a matter of time until they do fail.

On occasion a flashdrive will not open properly and a window opens that offers to fix/repair it... attempting to recover files. I DO do that - but again, I usually hot-foot it a store and buy a new one.

Have also had flashdrives refuse to eject... so though it's not ideal by any means, I have done a hard-shutdown of the computer. Then unplug the flashdrive. Then upon restarting the computer and plugging in the flashdrive, it works OK.

Will checkout mail tonight.

You're welcome.

Hopefully I covered everything - sometimes when typing up instructions for something that I just do without thinking about it... I miss a step.

Sweetfeet, she was a drag racing "entertainer", a bit raunchy for her day, and quite a character!

Bob,

Hee-hee... not nearly as bad as I'd imagined!

Wasn't going to google it... just in case. LOL

One more tip if I may:

Whether you use flash drives, hard drives, zip drives or what, just sitting there doing nothing, the drives can go bad due to age. It's a smart idea to buy newer drives every few years, transfer the backed-up files to the new drives, then use the "former" backup drives for anything you like - including yet more storage.

So far, I've never had a PC or a hard drive go bad. Still have one of the original Compaq portables that was the size of a suitcase and weighed about 34 lbs.

Oh, one last thing - for anyone who may be worried about EMP's (Electro-Magnetic Pulse), you may also want to bury one of those drives in a Faraday cage. Wink

?can you tell me how to back up my photo files in Windows 10 to a zip drive without backing up everything else in the computer??

This is one method of how to back up photo files.

Locate the file or folder that you want to ?back up? on a portable storage device.


Right click the file or folder and select Copy.


Click the Start icon in the bottom left corner of the desktop.


Select the Computer option.


Locate the portable storage device.


Right click the portable storage device an select Paste.


The files or folders will start copying to the portable storage device.


After the copying has completed, double click the portable storage device to see the ?back up? files or folder.


Hope this helps.

They did that for me too. My old flip phone would not hold a charge anymore, about 5 or 6 years old. Replaced with a Samsung prime ....whatever that means....and the nice young lady transferred all my files. Still waiting til the kids come home to fully comprehend how this thing works. Ben

Leroy,
Same as me when my motherboard fried, the tech could not retrieve any files.

Glad I had backup files on the external hard drive. I couldn't print all of my photos... I'd go broke buying the ink. Smile
