Maxin' Out My Hard Drives

I feel like I have maxed out my credit cards and I am desperately looking for another credit card to transfer the balance to so that I have some “room” on my virtual credit card. OK, this credit card situation that I’m talking about it is all hypothetical. That’s how I feel about my external hard drives. They’re maxed out!

I am still in the process of transferring everything from my PC laptop to my Apple Macbook Pro. There are many ways to transfer the information, but what I have found works best for me in the transfer is the use of an external hard drive. The easiest way that I can do this is to plug in my Western Digital 60 gig Passport external hard drive (see picture below) to the PC, transfer the files to the drive, unplug the drive from the PC and then plug the drive into my Macbook Pro and dumping the much needed files there.

This works great except for when your hard drive is maxed out and full. I’ve had to transfer files that I still need to other external hard drives, key drives, thumb drives and SD cards just to relieve some space on the my WD Passport drive!

Crazy, I know…but I don’t think there is any difference between maxin’ out your credit cards, transferring the balance to another credit card and maxin’ out your hard drive and transferring the bigger files to another drive to save space and give you some breathing room. Ok, maybe there is…it’s called a way too high interest rate!
