want to copy to the MiniPro drive.
3) Drag the mouse over the icon representing the MiniPro drive.
4) Let go of the mouse button and the le will copy to the MiniPro.
5) The task is complete. This is known as a "drag-and-drop" action.

The disk drive contained in your MiniPro is a delicate
electronic device and is susceptible to damage due to
excessive physical shock. Please handle the unit with care.
Avoid moving the drive while it is reading/writing data.
Doing so can cause corruption and/or damage to the drive.
Q: Can I use my drive with bus power only?
A: Yes, in the majority of cases bus power is adequate. However, if you
are using the drive with a hub, make sure that it is a powered hub
(uses AC adapter).
Q: Why does my computer show that the external hard drive
has less capacity than advertised?
A: In the hard drive industry the partitioned size will be less than the
printed capacity on the label. This is due to the fact that computers
calculate capacity based on a binary (base 2) method, where
1GB = 1024 MB. The hard drive industry calculates using a decimal
method, where 1GB = 1000 MB. This is why the two dierent industries
will report dierent capacities for the same drive.
Q: How do I boot in MAC OS X using the external hard drive?
A: Open Disk Utility, click the drive and select “Partition” in menu on
the right. Choose “Mac OS Extended (Journaled). 2) Click “Options.
If you have an Intel Mac, select “GUID” as the partition scheme. If you
have a Power PC Mac, select Apple Partition Map. 3) Click “Partition” ;
upon completion, install the Operating System on the external drive.
5) Upon completion, eject the external drive and reboot the Mac as
normal. 6) After reboot, connect the external drive to the computer.
Open System Preferences and click “Startup Disk. Choose the external
drive. Conrm and click restart.
