    Copy of external hard drive and all its folders in the C drive.

    Thank you for replying,

    Perhaps my question /description was not clear. The contents of the external drive, let’s call it N, are not in the C drive tree as files or folders. The N drive is duplicated with its drive letter and contents as a C drive folder. Deleting
    from that folder on the C drive also deletes from the external drive. And visa versa.

  3. Copy PC contents to external hard drive

    I have installed Windows 10 on my PC. Typically I back up the entire contents of my PC on an external hard drive. I once had a hard drive crash and learned the hard way about the value of complete external backups for a PC.

    The procedure I used with Windows 8.1 does not seem to apply to Windows 10. Which item on this list "This PC, Desktop, Documents Downloads, Music Pictures HPLJP1000-1500 (C)" should I select to copy everything (including Windows 10) on my external hard
    drive?
