I moved files on my computer when I did a user profile update and couldn't find the them. I know they were deleted from the old user profile when I switched them over. I did not back them up first. I used recuva and think I found the documents. They have no title so I'm not sure. When I went to save the recovered files recuva says to copy them to a hard drive other than where they were found. I only have a c drive so I started looking for the best medium to copy them to. I have a lot of pics. along w/ docs. and I want the the highest quality transfer I can get. I have read so many scary problems with external hard drives I didn't buy one. I have an sd slot on my comp. but no sim card slot. Is there an adapter I could use to connect a sim card to my laptop anyway?
Thanks a million

You can copy to your C drive, just put it in a folder. it throws all the files in one folder...so be prepared to Sort.

Its just a better idea to copy it to a different drive is all.

Thats not necessarily true. I prefer the a standalone case and add my own hard drive to it. The all in one backup drives seem to be a little more difficult in that replacing a hard drive is trickier.

If you do not have a backup plan for your data then you are asking for trouble.
Most of us have 3 or more back ups for our data.
