You have security software installed on your hard drive that prevents it being read if it is stolen. You must find out what security program you are using and follow directions from their documentation to unlock it.

Iomega 1tb drive have files hidden


You might not have the appropriate software installed on your computer to show / read the files
IE: adobe flash , directx , win zip , codec , word ......
Determine if access is denied by a sharing violation because the folder and its files are in use by someone else or the computer itself. Wait several minutes, and then attempt to access the folder again. Go to the location where the file or its folder are stored on your computer. Lock files are hidden files in Microsoft Windows. Select "Show hidden files." The lock files for Windows applications have a ~ symbol in front of the file name. For example, for test.txt, the lock file is named ~test.txt. In UNIX, the lock file may be identified by an extension of .lock or .swp within in the file name. Delete the lock file. The locked file or folder unlocks. Reboot your computer, and bring it up in Safe Mode. This prevents the startup of many of the system services and programs that could be locking the files or folders. Attempt to access the folder location and its contents. If the folder is available, save the folder or its contents in a directory to which you have access. Record the active processes running on the computer and the programs available in Safe Mode. Then, log into the computer after a normal boot up. Review the applications running in the background in normal setup. One of these applications may be preventing access to the file folder and its contents. If there are applications that run in normal mode that do not run in Safe Mode, turn off those applications. Then, try to access the file folder again. b> Are the Security Permissions for the Folder or Its Contents Preventing Access? b> Check the file folder permissions by right-clicking on the folder and selecting "Properties." In the "Properties" dialog box, select the "Security" tab. The "Name" list box includes the user and group permissions. If there is no "read," "read and execute," or "write" permissions in your user profile, you do not have permission to view the file folder or its contents. These security permissions are typically set by system administrators. System administrators may be trying to prevent end users from altering system files that are critical to the computer running smoothly. Contact your system administrator, and request local administrative rights to the computer. This allows you to gain access to the files and folders that are restricted to administrators. Edit the system policies using administrative tools via the gpedit.msc program. Users can add, read and modify permissions for folders and other objects via this program. Full control is the best system policy, because it includes read, write, execute and modify rights. However, access to the gpedit.msc program may be restricted, as well. Go to the command line (press on the "Windows" and the "R" keys on your keyboard at the same time), and enter the CACLS command for the folder name. Use the command format: C:\> cacls <foldername> /E /G <username>:F CALCS stands for Change the Access Control ListS. This command allows you to add your user name to the security settings to permit access to the protected system folder when the gpedit.msc program is not available. Hope this helps.

I believe my hard drive is locked. When I try to plug in my hard drive to someone else's computer I cannot drag anything into it. Thanks for the help!


For some hard drives, you need to have the correct driver installed on the computer in order to use it. Especially if it is a USB device. If not try a different usb port. The port your using might not be working properly. If that doesn't work... turn off the computer and plug the hard drive in, then turn the computer on. The computer may need to recognize it on boot up.

When I turn my Toshiba external hard drive on, the led lights up and there is a very faint repetitive click but nothing else happens. Any ideas?


Hi

A clicking hard drive means that the mechanical parts of the drive are breaking down. This also means that the drive slows down and will eventually stop working. If you need to retrieve data from your clicking hard drive before it fails, you can do this with an external hard drive enclosure. This enclosure will turn your hard drive into a drive that is readable through a USB drive.

1)Place the hard drive inside the enclosure.
2)Push the enclosure's two rectangular cables into the back of the hard drive. These will power the drive and allow a computer to "see" the files.
3)Screw the enclosure tight with a Phillips head screwdriver. This will secure the hard drive within the enclosure, preventing it from moving around or falling out.
4)Connect the enclosure power cord into a socket. Place the enclosure's USB cord into the computer.
5)Click "Start," then press "My Computer." The drive will be located under the hard drive portion of "My Computer." Double-click it to open the drive. Drag the data you want to the computer for safe keeping.

In most cases the hard drives which clicks cannot be restore to normal functionality,so please ensure that you recover your data at the earliest before the hard drives fails completely.

How do I move a file from one computer to another


The mac computer should be able to read your Windows partition, but be warned that it will not work the other way around. There are many ways of moving the file, such as copying to a flash drive and plugging the flash drive into the Mac computer, or e-mailing the file to yourself.

Acer laptop wont actsept password need help please


I did not notice the top question. What windows is this? You might have to find someone that has a disk that can boot up your computer to change the password for you. I have a disk like that, so I know someone else should have one. If you do not want to do that, you will have to re-load Windows to change the password and you will lose everything. If you do not have important stuff on it, that is the best thing to do. You could put the hard drive in an external drive case and plug it into another computer to save anything that needs to be saved.
