Generically, external drives often come with backup software for both Windows & Mac, plus button controller software (possibly also for Windows & Mac) often called a 'driver'. Of course you don't need to use any of that. The drive should install just fine without running hte button software-but the buttons that make it a 'One-Touch' backup drive won't work. Likewise you don't need to use the included backup software, but your current backup software might not interact with the buttons even if you install the driver.

So it really depends on what you want to do with the drive-use it as a bare external drive or use the included backup software & shortcut buttons?

The drive is up and running, Is it safe to put all the files in a folder on the drive if i want to use the backup system of the drive software

What Calvin-c said.
I'd experiment if I were you.
It's safe enough to make a folder for the files, and if the drive is large enough you can use the backup software also.
Backup software helps to automate this task, so a combination of backup and copy is just fine.
