How to use external HDD as extended storage?

Hello there I recently bought an external HDD for my MacBook Pro because it is only a 256GB model so it doesn't have a lot of space. I read online that I can use the external HDD not only as a Time Machine drive, but also for general file storage. I tried following the methods posted about formatting the drive as Mac OS Extended (Journaled) and then partitioning it into two partitions, but I am unable to do that. Please check the screenshot attached for reference. I am currently reading...

Install to an external hard drive suggestions

Hello Everyone, I have a newish laptop with an A10-9600P with 8gb ram. Of course, it has Windows 10 on it and I have to leave it there for my wife (she refuses to use Linux, I despise Windows 10.) I want to install a full blown Ubuntu (17.10), but I have a couple concerns with the installation on this drive. 1. I don't want the Grub boot loader on the laptops hard drive. I want to leave that alone. I have tried this before and it insists on installing Grub on the laptop's hardrive with a path ...

Seagate External Storage: Light on, drive spinning, but unable to access files?

I have a Seagate Backup Plus 4TB USB 3.0 that has some important files I need to access on it. When I plug it in, the light turns on as normal, I can hear it spinning, but neither my Windows 10 PC or my Mac OSX 10.10.5 recognize it, and it doesn't show up in disk management either. The USB ports work fine and so does the the cable. Is there something I'm missing? Is my drive dead? Is there any way for me to access my files? Thanks. Eric...

External HDD as primary storage

Hey all! For my next iMac, I'm thinking of going with the 512GB SSD instead of a Fusion Drive. I would use the internal SSD for all system requirements and applications. Then, I would buy an external USB 3.0 HDD for all file storage. Is this option fairly easy to set up and use on a daily basis? Anything I need to know or watch out for? Any other comments? Thx!...

4 TB+ External Hard drive suggestions?

My 4 TB Desktop External Hard drive from Seagate died last week. Luckily I was able to recover the data just before it was a hopeless lost. Does anyone recommend sticking to Seagate or go to another brand like WD? Surprisingly it lasted me 5+ years. But I've heard that Seagate reliability has gone down recently. I wish I could consider using a simple plug and play NAS drive like 3 TB Time Capsule, but from what I've heard from reviews, those are unreliable due to overheating. Any sugge...

External Storage: Why can't I add files to my Toshiba external hard drive?
