Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Hi I had recently connected my external hard drive and when I tried to do a system restore because I am able to connect to 192. network, I cannot connect to a 9. network in my office which has an intranet. Infact I cannot even connect to the internet or ping an yahoo etc from the 9. network while in office. What could be the issue? I have even tried disabling the firewall to see if there was a firewall issue.

I have the Lacie Minidisk Ethernet 500 GB that contains all my house PC backup. I both an USB Minidisk Lacie (1 GB) in order to use MySafe feature but it never worked.


Hello Elio,

Use MySafe to back up the files stored on the Ethernet Disk mini Home to an attached USB storage device. This way, if files on the Ethernet Disk mini are damaged or accidentally deleted, you can restore them to their original locations.
There are three main steps to using MySafe,Connecting an external USB hard drive,Backing up files to the external USB hard drive,Restoring files to the Ethernet Disk mini (if necessary)
Before you can back up files, you need to connect a hard drive to your Ethernet Disk mini via the USB port on the back. Use a hard drive that is USB 2.0 compatible.
While connecting an external hard drive make sure your Ethernet Disk mini is turned on and connected to your network.Turn on the external USB hard drive.Connect the external hard drive's USB cable to the USB port on the back of the Ethernet Disk mini, just like you would connect the external hard drive to your computer.Confirm that the drive is properly connected. Log in and click on the Administer HipServ link. Click on USB External Storage under System.
To back up files, navigate to the file or folder you want to back up to the external hard drive and click on the disk icon in the "Backup" column of the file list.When you back up files to MySafe, the Ethernet Disk mini duplicates the file path in MySafe so that everything you back up is organized in MySafe just as in its original location. So, if you copy a file from MyLibrary, a MyLibrary folder will appear in MySafe, with all folders leading to the backed up file.

Always click the Safely Remove Drive button on the USB External Storage before unplugging your MySafe external hard drive. Wait for the interface to change and for the Use Drive button to appear before disconnecting the USB cable from the Ethernet Disk mini. Failure to safely remove your external hard drive before disconnecting the USB cable can cause data loss and/or damage the drive. Always use the Safely Remove Drive feature when disconnecting an external hard drive.

Hello masters of FixYa. Today, I connected an


Not sure why this happened but I suggest you download and run c cleaner, it's safe and effective and assuming that your free space was overwritten with temp files you should be able to get it back.
On the c cleaner interface you will see a tab called 'System Restore' You can use this to clear all but the most recent restore point which should help free up space also.
I hope this helps.
Here's a link to a download page for ccleaner...... http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner

How do I delete all the info backed up on my irocks external hard drive?


Usually hard drive disks are erasable so long as was an an empty space. However, the type of setting chosen during data encription causes the situation of erasability. For example, using an external harddrive disk as back up media storage media has specific requirements. The computer provides an integral means of least being compromised where data permanent encription may have been the options available during backup copying. The compoter provides the procedures of recording data into any connected external devices. Once the external device is reconnected to the computer, the options of requesting the user to either erase what has already been copied becomes one of the several displayable promps. Also, backup disks usually on connection to the computer assumes a necessity to restore to functioning mode. However, a least malfunctioning computer would simply display prompts asking the computer user to perform the most recent backup, or disregard because of least disfunction recognised from the system. Attempting is erase what has already been recorded becomes appropiate whenever the computer recognises any curroption of the files. A prompt is display asking to fix errors soon after connection. The computer user simple chooses to restore to default functionality the external hardrive. Amongs the options usually provided of the program prompt are format, delete, restore, or backup computer files once connection is recognised. keep in mind that, an external hard disk may be default rrecordable proving no options of erasing. Refer to the hard disk drive user guide as reference to achieve the process. Also, the user guide would have specified if the device is capable of alternations or not.

Hard drive recovery, hard drive is damaged


My brother's MacBook Pro had a similar issue a few years ago. In his case the issue started when he attempted to update the OS to the then most recent version. The update failed with an error saying that the Hard Disk needed to be repaired and instructing him to restart in Recovery Mode and repair the disk. When he did this the "Repair Disk" option was grayed out as you said. From my searches then it seems that the drive entered a "write-locked" state that prevented it from mounting. I was able to recover his files and restore the computer to working order. You will need another computer that has enough free space to hold the files you want to save, and the appropriate cable to connect the misbehaving computer to the working computer.
This procedure requires booting in Recovery Mode and erasing the non-working computer's hard drive, reformatting it, and restoring the system.
1. Turn on the working computer.
2. Make sure the non-working computer is turned off, connect the two computers using the appropriate cable (FireWire or Thunderbolt)
3. Turn on the non-working computer holding down the "T" key to enter Target Disk Mode. (This worked in the case of my brother's computer, but I can't guarantee that this will work in your case, but if you could get it into Verbose mode I would think you should be able to get into Target Disk Mode.)
4. The non-working computer's hard drive icon should appear on the working computer's desktop. You may get a message that you cannot alter the contents of the external drive (non-working computer), but you will be able to transfer files from the non-working machine to the working one.
NOTE: You could connect a dedicated external drive to the working computer and transfer files from the non-working computer to the external drive using the working computer as an intermediary of sorts.
5. Transfer the files you wish to save. We will be erasing the non-working computer's drive and restoring the system so be certain you have what you need transferred before you get to that step.
6. Once you have saved all of the files you need to save, you can eject the non-working computer's hard drive, and turn off the non-working computer.
7. If possible connect the computer to the internet, if not possible you can use wi-fi, but it may take longer.
8. Connect the non-working computer to the drive with your most recent backup.
8. Turn on the non-working computer holding down the "Command+R" keys.
9. Once the computer is in Recovery Mode choose the option to Restore From Backup
10. You will then be asked to choose which backup to use, and then click "Restore". Once this process is done you should be able to boot the system. You can then transfer the files you saved to the other computer or external hard drive back to the restored computer.

Maxtor Personal Storage 3200 200 GB... Problem


Its going to be a hardware thing. Is the drive connected to a UB2 port? The network itself has its own data transfer rate  ( ie. gigabit ) you need to make sure you cables are no longer than 6 ft, its plugged into a high speed port, and that all ports on the chain are of the same speed. If you have the option, go firewire for this. If that does not rectify it, check adminsitrator properties of the drive.
