Just copy the file to the external. Unless you are having other problems with the external it is as easy as copying a file from one internal dive to another internal drive, but will take a bit longer.

This is not a real-time support chat room. People reply when and if they have time and have something to add.

Assign a drive letter to the drive in Disk Management. You didn't post your operating system, so I can't be more specific. Google it and your OS, and you'll find exact instructions.
