I have an external drive that holds all my data, and I keep all my programs
and such on the C drive. But I want to have a backup external drive that
I can keep away from the main computer. I don't see a way to transfer
from external drive to external drive, tho, since I haven't seen an external
drive with a usb *input.*

Is there some way to do this? It's too much data to transfer back to the C
drive than out to the other external drive...

Thx,

Kelly

All you need to do is to connect both drives at the same time, then copy from one to the other. You should have more than one USB port, although the other one could be in use, in which case you would need to get a USB hub. If the external drives have their own power, this should work, but there are power limitations with the USB hubs.
