Just bought myself an external hard drive.
a Maxtor Basics 500GB
It came with no instructions apart from a simple plug and go quick start guide.
So USB connects to computer and then a separate power supply.
Ive moved (not copied) almost all of my photos,videos,music which is A LOT.
Only now im worried when i turn it off.
If i just turn the computer off normally will all my data be safe stored on the hard drive?
also if the plug is accidentally knocked and turns off the hard drive will i loose my data?
probably a simple question so i hope you can help cheers!!
