I am having trouble understanding my external hard drive.

  Is it possible to store movies on my hard drive and then delete on my computer to allow more space.

This is worrying me as I don't want to delete anything on my computer thinking that the next time Time machine backs up it will notice no Movies on my computer and then back up without movies.  I do think they will be there in last months backups but I still am having second thoughts .... but more importantly  I have photos  that maybe I could do the same thing. 

 

I think I am having problems with 'backing up' what is on my computer or 'storing' on the external hard drive

 

Could anyone give me a hand to understand this?

 

Thanks   Chelleywell
