Thank you for posting on HP Support Community.


Don't worry as I'll be glad to help,  

You have the option to use a USB drive or external hard drive, or CD/DVD Drive to transfer files. Make sure that there is enough space on the drive to complete the transfer. This will avoid repeating transfers.

  • Simply connect your USB hard drive directly to your laptop. 
  • Click windows start button and type This PC and you will be able to see your system drives and folders.
  • Select your files or data to initiate the copy/move to external hard drive. 

Hope this helps! Keep me posted for further assistance.
