`lacie hard drive

My lacie hard drive was almost full so i deleted about 8GB of material to make room for new files, but having deleted the file the hard drive did not register that any more free space was available. Its like the register is broken or something . ever heard of this problem before? could it also have anything to do with the fact I had started using it with my new mac lap top - in the past i have only ever used it with my old mac lap top. Is my external hard drive about to give up completely? I bought it in 2003 but never had a problem with it before? it's a lacie d2 Hd 120 gb FW DV

HARD DRIVE IS FULL


Hiii,
In my view deletion of data is the common data loss scenario from peripheral device like external storage device. These deleted files can be recovered by some of the software's which are available online. But this can be achieved if you have not continued its usage after data loss. Have you transferred any new file in your storage device??

Cant delete files off external harddrive. files disappear but no space is freed up? lacie porche fa


Hello,
this sometimes happens when you delete files partially. Deleting file normally will send it to the Trash (MAC) or Recycle Bin (PC) . The file is not really deleted at that point. Make sure to empty the Trash or Recycle Bin and the space should be freed.
If this does not work, copy all needed files somewhere else, then format the drive.
Regards,

Creating space on external hard drive


When you move files to the Trash on a Mac you are just marking the files to be deleted next time you empty the trash. You are not actually deleting them when you move them to the trash. They will continue to take up space on your drive until you empty the trash.

Emptying the trash will delete everything in the Trash folder regardless of which drive it is stored on. If you have files you are not certain you want to delete that are located on your internal drive, open the Trash folder and move them temporarily out (like to the desk top), then empty the trash to delete all the ones on the external drive that you do want to clear off.

You will see that the free space has increased on the external drive. Now put back in the trash the files from your internatl drive you were thinking of deleting but not certain you wnated to (if that is your reason for not wanting to empty the trash. I'm not clear on why you would not want to delete them.)

Information used- capacity used and available


Re: deleting the files, did you drag the files into the trash bin and then empty it? The files don't actually leave your drive until you 'Empty Trash' on your mac's doc. Hope this helps, not sure about your startup disc problem.

Lacie 320 GB Hard Drive acting as if full when it's not.


Simplest solution: back up the data on the drive and repartition it (which will wipe it). Otherwise it sounds like it could be a problem with the file tree or structure of the drive, the configuration files could be corrupt, some program could have stored temporary files in a hidden place that cannot be deleted without making the program delete them, etc. If you are on a mac, spotlight Disk Utility and use it to repartition. If you are on a PC use the search thing from the start menu and find a program called disk management (or something similar to that, you'll know it when you see it.) external drives are annoying. i kick mine into the wall periodically for good measure.

Drive Full After Backing-Up Just Under 4gb of Files


Are you trying to create one giant zip file or something similar? It sounds as if your Lacie 250gb hard drive has been formatted with a FAT32 filesystem and you are running into the maximum file size limit of 4gb minus 1 byte. Try just copying your files without using any compression utility or try reformatting your Lacie 250gb hard drive with the NTFS filesystem instead.

The OS is hidden in memory, you can clear all files off the machine and it will still work.

The only requirements are the 4 folders:
Firmware
Movies
Music
Pictures

That's it!

New firmware can be found at www.lacie.com
