Now that the drive is partitioned and formatted, I’m backing-up through the USB port. It’s just photos to begin with, but it’s mind boggling. This PC (one of three with photo collections) has 28,117 pictures and videos to archive.
From time-to-time the process seems to stop. It’s possible I’ve hit a video file there, some of which are multiple gigabytes long!
I know this is ‘good for me’ but it’s a pain-in-the-ass. The big question is, once I’ve done this will I have the guts to move these files off the computer?
