- QuestionWhy does one of the pictures show it on the computer desk with no cords plugged into the electricity nor a laptop so other devices can wirelessly access it? The only cord is charging something. (6 Answers)Answers
Let's start by reiterating that this is NOT a wireless device but a device being displayed without wires. Welcome to the wonderful world of promotional advertising where things need to look as appealing as possible regardless of functionality. In this case, the photo is selling you on the fact that you can plug your phone into the front of the drive to charge or interact with it via the built-in USB (*feature*). Cables running out the back and disappearing behind the desk would draw your attention away from this feature and remind you that, yes, this DOES, indeed, cause desktop clutter and that you'll need an open plug on a power bar or outlet to power it and a USB plug on your computer for data. Honestly, I'm surprised they didn't cut the power cable off of the lamp, too.
- QuestionWill it work with a PS4? (3 Answers)
- QuestionIs this compatible with Xbox One? (4 Answers)Answers
Yes, should work w/no hitches, although it will take 500 gigs away from your external drive to download the operating system compatibility for it, I have AWD 5 terabyte external hard drive and this is something that is never mentioned the fact that when you buy a large over 2 terabyte hard drive that in order to transfer all of the content seamlessly it has to essentially download a clone of the operating system from the console and that takes up some serious space but 8 terabytes you'll never ever have to worry about space even if you have three to four people on your console
- QuestionI have a Desktop with Win. 7 & 16GB Ram, (4) 2 TB HDs (Drives C, D, H & J) with this External HD, is there a way to partition it so I can copy all drives over to this one drive. Then transfer the programs I use over to a New Desktop with Win. 10? (3 Answers)Answers
Sure. To make partitions you just need a partition program, and there are plenty of free and paid programs available if you search online. It's been about 3 years since the last time I used one, so I don't feel informed enough to make a suggestion, but there are guides and lists that explain the pros and cons of many partition programs. However, for the purposes of transferring to a new computer you should check Microsoft's guide for doing so. Some of your drives probably don't have program referenced files, so you can move their contents however you want, but programs and their files may need to be reinstalled if drive letters (and therefore file addresses) change.
