Question about SmartDisk FireLite 40 GB Hard Drive
I have a macbook and I was storing my old computers(ibook g4) music and photos on it. This morning I went to backup some of my new photos. It would not let me put anything else on it and said that it was full. It is suppose to hold 80GB and there were only 30 on it.
I troubleshooted for a long time. I took everything off and it still said it is full. I would like to reformat it and see if that solves it, but I am unsure how to do that. Help please. Or if you can think of anything else to do that would be wonderful.
I had a similar problem once. If you have deleted files from the external hard drive, you need to empty the trash while the drive is still plugged in. Otherwise, they will still take up memory on your drive.
Hope this helps!
