Also and external hard drive will hold the whole thing from programs, Jump drives won't. I lost some important stuff to jump drives, that I won't have with a stick. Also make sure you don't have to us an AC adaptor, but you can if you want. I have had several externals and like my Toshiba the best. Barbara has a Western Digital that is very good too, and is about the size of a deck of playing cards:) Both were way under a $100 dollars :)
Love and Hugs, James
If you need a smile, take mine, I'll make a new one.
