Yes it would.
Think of the hard drive as a mammoth thumb drive.

What I've done is to paste my files or folders from wherever they live
to the new external drive. When you open the drive there will probably
be nothing listed unless there is some software from the drive
manufacturer.
So move what you want and you will have copies of what you transferred.
Hope this helps.

P S The new drive will appear under the "c" and "d" drives and
whatever else is listed and will have the next available letter

Hello,

I have a new external hard drive that I would like to put some
folders and files on. I've never used an external hard drive and
have no clue what to do to accomplish this once I've plugged it into my
computer.

I'm using Windows 10, Jaws 18 and Word 2016.

Could somebody please advise? .. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Laura
