Okay guys, my computer's been a little 'off' lately (I'm not going to get into it, it's 5 years old), and I was trying to use a portable HD (250 gig capacity) to backup all of my important stuff (lotta image files, music, and, importantly, video. Anyway, I have more than enough space on the portable HD device, but I keep encountering files that the computer is telling me there isn't enough space for them (when I clearly have well over 200+ gigs free!).
I've already cleared the recycle bin several times,... am I missing something totally obvious here? I figured I would just drag and drop all the files I need and then go to bed, but this is turning into a real mess -lol.
