  1. Maintaining an additional copy of my important files on a different internal hard disk.


    1. I have a good collection of pictures in one folder My Pictures Main, with many sub folders on a second hard disk Disk D of my PC, ie not on Drive C. I keep adding pictures to this collection.

    2. In order to avoid loss of these pictures, I have a copy of this main folder My Pictures Main on yet another internal hard disk Disk E. Updating this backup folder manually each time is a very cumbersome process. Is it possible to auto sync or, auto update these two folders which are on two different internal hard disks?

    :)

    Re-activating windows 10 after installing new motherboard and an additional internal hard disk

    I upgraded to Windows 10 for free from an eligible device running a genuine copy of Windows 7.

    Recently I had to change my motherboard. Further I also installed an additional internal hard disk with windows 7. Now the windows 10 installed in the original hard disk needs re-activation. Troubleshooting did not solve the issue. I am not able to re-activate
    the digital license.

    Do I need to did-connect the additional hard disk with windows 7 OS?

    Please help me.

    Maintaining an additional copy of my important files on a different internal hard disk.

    Java.nio.file - Copying files

    You can't copy a folder, thats why it generates an exception (you are trying to copy a folder using a copy file function).
    You probably need to list all the files inside that folder and copy one by one
