Question about INOi Computers & Internet

Open Question

40GB Hard Drive Disk is filling up

We own a:
INOi Portable 2.5” Hard Drive Disk
40GB capacity
model number 260U-00042
I-Mac laptop
Version 10.5.5
Processor: 2.1 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
Memory: 1 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM

We have been successfully backing up using the Time Machine feature of the computer. Typically, we have been able to “store” 4 or 5 backups “behind” a current backup.

Now, only one backup is stored (dated November 4, 2008) and I am unable to execute a new backup. Time Machine tells me that only 2.9 GB of 37.3 GB are available and that the backup requires 3.8 GB.

The only change in our use of the computer is the result of having been given an I-Pod nano as a gift and using the associated software. 

Why can’t I backup?
Why isn’t Time Machine erasing older backups to make room for new ones?
Why has my Hard Disk Drive filled up?

Please assume I know nothing about computers. I hope that you can help. Thanks.

SOURCE: Which is better laptop deal?

Hi !!

Ofcourse 2.4 ghz is better than 2.1 ghz but its not a very big difference if price difference is more than 100$ than go for first one else second one is good and the most important thing i want to mention is that it all depends upon your needs you havent mention for what purpose you are going to purchase. But both are enough for gaming, daily use and for techie as well.

Hope that helps

SOURCE: my inoi 500gb hard drive

I am a little puzzled (from Manchester). I think you are saying that this drive is an external drive powered by usb connection to your pc. If this is so, have you tried it on another pc? I assume you are getting the "USB Device not recognised" message when plugged in. Try plugging it into the usb ports on the backplate (if it is a tower pc that is). If all else fails then try and download a linux (ubunto) distro and burn to dvd. Boot your pc from the cd and linux will appear as your desktop. now plug in your drive and if it opens ok then copy the contents to your original drive in the pc. If all goes well you can then delete the partition on the usb drive and when back into windows you can format the drive and if lucky you can copy back the pics back onto it. If this does not work then the drive is shafted. The only way to get the data from it is to give it to a data recovery company who will charge the earth but at least you will have the pics.

Good luck

Your best bet beyond maxing out memory will be upgrading to an SSD. Depending on your operating system and versions of installed software, try using a program like XSlimmer to remove any powerpc files included in universal bundles.

Your machine has a DVD-rom drive, but not a DVD-burner. There is a difference.

Basically, you can read and play the DVD's, but the drive is not capable of burning them.
