I mean if it's just a folder with files then copy + paste should be fine anough If you have any apps installed there then that's a different issue But just copying the files somewhere else (two separate drives to be sure you don't accidentally lose a copy or something) should be fine For future reference, "main folder" means nothing. Unless you're talking about something like your Windows user folder (C:\Users\YourUsernameHere) or something like your entire C drive, there is no "main folder" for a whole system

Size has no bearing on it having issues with copying All it means is that it'll take longer to move around
