If I open My Computer once to show a particular folder on my C:drive and then open another My Computer screen to display a particular folder on my E: drive and then drag the C:\folder to the E:\folder, will ALL the subfolders and ALL the files of the C:\ folder be copied to the E:\ folder? I want to be sure I am not losing any files in the process.
Thank you. .... batpark
If you just drag the folder, it will be moved from C to E, (complete with all contents as answered above). If you hold down the CTRL button while dragging, the folder will be copied to E but will also remain in C, resulting in the same folder in two places.
If E is a stick drive or an external hard drive, this is a good way to back up important data, assuming the backup copy is protected.
