Hi mshedgehoq You need to take the micro sd card out of the phone put it into your computer and make a copy on the sdcard from your computer. Your husband did a hard reset should not have wiped out all the information. If you go to my files look for lost.dir and see if all the informationd is still in their. Now your husband didn't do anything to the phone it is thr way of all dtoids to put your information in the lost.dir ok Hit that menu and you should see all your information. The hard reset did it's job which is to wipe the phone competely out of data like brand new.

SimpleTech 80 GB Portable HD Won't Read


It sounds like a problem with the board inside the case,- the actual hard drive is probably OK. Opening the case will void any warranty but there may not be much left anyway. There should be 4 screws in the bottom of the drive,- front 2 may be hidden under a sticker. Try installing the drive in your new case or an empty drive bay inside your computer. I have had external hard drive cases fail before and the actual hard drive was ok.

I have a SimpleTech Portable Drive (back-up)


I assume you're using the StorageSync software. Go here to make sure you have the latest version:

http://www.simpletech.com/support/support_downloads_storagesync1.42.php

Since I don't know what you're clicking, I can only tell you that you need to choose the "Incremental Backup" radio button at the bottom left of the Backup Window, then click the "Backup" button.

Simpletech pininfarina problem


It appears that this is happening a lot with external drives. Inside most of them is just a regular internal drive. In my case I simply removed the drive from the external enclosure (a SimpleTech 160 Gig) and installed it in my PC, where it works like a charm. Most people who have this problem go out and buy a replacement generic external drive enclosure for about $30.00.
