Recycling is taking too long? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear,

    recently I have bought new laptop with window 7. 3 days ago I have connected my external HD to it and was copying files, pictures and video.

    I did about 50GB of copy, and still have to do 100GB. But now the computer is already recycling for 2 days ? is this normal? can I disconnect my external HD, because I am afraid to loose all information on it.

    I am not a expert in computers, hoping that someone can give me some advice what to do

    What do you mean about the sentence above?

    If you copy data to laptop, please wait a moment until the process is finished, then disconnect the external drive.

    Also, If you want to use System Restore to roll back to a easier state, usually, the system protection function is off by default for external drive, so it is not influenced in this case.
