Would moving all the files on an external hard drive into a single folder cause it to crash?

Q: can the files that come on an external hard drive be moved into one folder? I have a hard dirve that someone has done this and the hard drive crashed just wondered if moving all the included files to one folder caused the problem

    You mean there are files that came with the external drive when you purchased it?

    If you’re planning on using any of the software provided with the drive for doing backups, then I’d suggest keeping them as-is.

    Otherwise if you’re using something like Timemachine or Crashplan (both better options than anything that comes with your drive) you can just delete the files.
