Hope this is the right place on the forum for this post.
I got an e-mail telling me to store the course material on a memory stick. However I have another WB Element Hard-drive which when attached to the computer monitors all changes of the hard-drive and records everything new daily. So I should be fine when the computer crashes. Well my portable little hard-drive is really very nifty.
The memory stick often does have kinks. I loaded the mp3 and 4 files on my husbands Mac up to a memory stick but it won't open on my computer. It says, "file can't be opened." I need to look into this. Both computers are Macs. I like to know more bout memory sticks and why they would work or not work on different computers.
I certainly don't want to waste anybodies life with technical issues. It would be too much to ask further help from a teacher who already gives more than I ever even could imagine. However, I love to be part of your community if that is possible. Supporting each other remains so important.
Yes, this place is fine for this topic.
It doesn't have to be a thumb drive/memory stick. Any external hard drive will do, and cloud storage will work just as well.
Personally I have always used memory sticks and external hard drives. I have never come across a problem with using them on my devices.
I use windows computers and I don't know much about Mac machines because I have never used them. However you seem to have a working solution, so that's fine. The main thing is to have a backup one way or the other.
