Then I'll just have two huge files, one with a few more recently acquired file. I have a large file that contains many folders. The contents of these folders change, and I was wondering if there was a way that I could get the computer to just make the changes, and not have to rewrite the whole thing. Maybe what I'm asking isn't possible, I don't know.

I just copied the file onto the hard drive. Click and drag kind of thing.

Get Cobian Backup and do a complete backup. Then the next time you want to do a backup you can have it just backup the files that have changed which will save a lot of time.
