How to do this is, you go to start. You click My Computer, use this to browse to where you want to go. In our case, we want to go to Our Documents, and we want our....shopping list. We need to know what we want to buy at the store. So we're going to right click it, go copy, 'cause we just want to copy it to our external device. We go back to My Computer again, so now we have two windows open. And there is our external storage device white, right there. We open it, we right click anywhere. Hit paste, and we've just copied one file from our hard drive to our external storage device. It's that simple. Now you just rinse and repeat for all the files you need. You can remove the external device. And you've just transfered your data. My name's James, and I just showed you how to store data using a flash drive.
