Cannot delete files or folders


In the SimpleDrive Pininfarina FAQ's it suggests that the files may have come from a different computer and therefore be secured, thus you will need to change the Security Properties of the folder & contents to give yourself access to these files in order to be able to delete them.

See example properties from a Windows 7 folder.

My WD 1TB hard disk drive shows me loaded with 300GB capacity of folders but when they are not seen on my pc


1) Open any folder on your your computer and go to: Tools > Folder options > View tab > check "Show hidden files and folders" and uncheck "Hide protected operating system files". 2) Look at your hard disk again, if you still can't see any files on it, there must be an error of your disk. To solve it, go to: My Computer (or Win+E keyboard shortcut) > Right click on the drive representing the 1TB hard disk > Properties > Tools > Check Now... > Check both boxes to fix errors.

My 300GB simple drive external hard drive shows up on my mac, and all the files are there, but it won't let me write to it any more. It is nowhere near full, and I have written to it before. I can copy...


Hello,

Blah, stupid question about this folder, of course you can't.
If you have such possibility. The easiest sollution and almost guarantee it will work.

Copy all files from this ext HDD on your local pc and just format this HDD using windows formatting tool (right click on this HDD in my computer -> Format...)

pick NTFS of course

Cheers,
Mike

PROBLEM WITH MY WWD EXTERNAL HARD DRIVE


It appears it is not being recognized and mounted. Try running the add new hardware wizard if it isn't in your device manager already.

Maxtor 300GB--can't delete or write


You didn't specify if the original PC was Windows or MAC.

Is this USB external used on a PC with Windows? If so is it formatted NTFS? If so, Mac OSX and pretty much everything else but windows NT, 2k and XP can not write to NTFS. OSX and Linux will read an NTFS partition but at this time not write to it. If your drive is formatted NTFS, I would say, go to a windows machine and convert it to a FAT 32 Partition. Most everything will both read and write to FAT32.
