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?

You can do it, but caution with Time Machine. When your external drive is full, Time Machine deletes your old backups. The best way to store your movies in your external drive is to do a second partition in it
