Post Quesiton please.

Ok as we all know I have a 250gb external hardive and a laptop, yea ok I was wondering if I were to copy my entire Program Files folder or just some of the games folder over to my external harddrive and tried to run them would they run? or would I have to install all the apps to the external drive?

Default Re: Quesiton please.

the majority of the games would not run , they have security on them

just reinstall on the hdd , but if you do this the games may lag because of it bieng a usb hdd

yeah, thats not a good idea. i would only use the external hdd for media, documents and what not. i would use the internal hdd for games and such.
