Thanks,

Answer:

You can do this through Finder.


Plug in your external Disk.

Open Two Finder windows (Open one then press Cmd+n to open another)

Drag the files from your hard disk to your external location. The default action for that is to COPY the file, you If you hold the Command Key while doing this, it will move the file.

You do not want Clean My Mac. There are many reports on this web site where people have had serious problems with their computers after using that software.
