Use Disk Wizard. No 3rd party tools are required at all.

Scenario: 1 Pipeline SATA. 1 Barracuda SATA. 1 IDE drive with current OS. Is this correct?
Just treat the Pipeline from the DVR as an extra drive by formatting it, and moving the files over. You then can remove the IDE and Pipeline for peace of mind, but the OS advance setup should give the option of all three drives for install destination.


Leaving the IDE drive should not affect your resources.

You need top open the top of the case by removing the screws and check to see if the hard drive is operating (it will be warm to the touch and may be making a slight noise). If the hard drive is not working, verify that it is plugged in. If the hard drive is bad, you can replace it with a SATA hard drive. The Lorex system will see the new hard drive and ask you to format it for use with the system.

Hhd security lock reset password



Download the HDD Unlock Wizard diagnostic tool free from the link on the HDD Unlock page. The program allows you to test the program to see if it can recognize your hard disk before you attempt to unlock your drive. Double-click the icon in the "Downloads" folder and click "Run" to launch the program setup, then follow the HDD Unlock Wizard Setup Wizard to install.

Open the Unlock Wizard and click "Next" to get to the drive selection screen. The program automatically displays any drive that it can recognize in the "Drive selection" window and its status.

Select the name of the hard drive from the "Drive selection" window. Click "Next" to move into the status screen of the Wizard, then "Next" again to move to the unlock screen.

Go to the HDD Unlock page and purchase a virtual unlock card code for the program. The code will be emailed the email address you provide on the website. You must have an unlock code in order to complete the unlocking process with the HDD Unlock Wizard.

Enter your code into the provided box in the HDD Unlock Wizard. Once the code is entered, the Wizard will unlock the hard disk by erasing the data and re-certifying the drive, restoring it to its original factory settings.

Shut down the computer and boot it back up after the Unlock Wizard is finished the unlocking process. The computer hard disk should be unlocked and restored to factory settings.

1. Repair Station

Download the Repair Station diagnostic tool from HDD Tools and install it on your computer. Unlike HDD Unlock Wizard, Repair Station attempts to unlock the hard disk without erasing the information on the drive.

Register with your name and email address and create a login and password on the HDD Tools page. You must have a login and password to use the Repair Station tool.

Open Repair Station on your computer and go through the program screens to run the diagnostic test on your hard drive. If the hard disk appears in the list of available drives, Repair Station can unlock it.

Buy a Repair Station license code. The code will be emailed to the email address you provide. Enter the code into the provided box in the Repair Station application. Repair Station will attempt to unlock only the firmware area of the hard disk, without affecting the other information stored on the disk.

Restart the computer when Repair station is finished working. The hard disk should be unlocked without any effect on the rest of the system

My 1tb elements external drive is not recognised on windows 7


I'm guessing the HDD needs to be reformatted. To reformat... ALERT THIS WILL ERASE EVERYTHING ON YOUR HARD DRIVE. if there is import information that is not backed up, back it up on a computer that recognizes the drive.
Go to control panel in the start menu, then to system and security, then Administrative tools, then computer management, then storage, Disk management,

This will list all storage devices that are connected to the computer. Based on the names you should be able to tell which one is the western digital. Right click, format and follow the formatting wizard. Format the drive as NTFS. Allocate all available space to 1 NTFS partition unless you would like multiple partitions.

How do i format to fat32 using windows 7


Windows 7 will format an external partition to FAT32, as long as it's 32GB or less. "Control Panel -> System and Security -> Administrative Options". Right click on "Computer Management", select "Run as an Administrator", double-click on "Storage" then "Disk Management", the right click on your external drive. Select "Shrink Volume", shrink it by 32GB or less, then right click on unallocated space, select format, and "FAT32" will show up as an option during the format wizard.

This is a way to create a small bit of space on an external hard drive for copying some files from Mac OS's to Windows.

I was given a MAXTOR 500 GB SATA HDD which I installed into my desktop. Once powered up, the HDD had an audio (almost chime)tone. The desktop installed the drivers but would not display the HDD in MY...


Hard drives do not generate audio tones for error messages or POST codes. Any problems should be reported by the BIOS on boot. The disk may not be showing up under Windows Explorer for other reasons, so...

Open up Disk Management (right-click on My Computer for XP, Computer for Vista) and select Manage from the context menu then select Disk Management from the left-hand pane. In the middle pane, scroll down until you find a disk that is Not Initialized or Offline.

If it is marked as Not Initalized, right-click on it and select Initialize Disk. After the disk has been initialized, you need to create a parition by right-clicking on unallocated space of the disk and selecting New Partition from the context menu. Follow the wizard to create the partition. Once the partition is created, right-click on your new partition and select Format from the context menu and follow the wizard to format the newly allocated space. Once this is done, you will be able to utilize the disk.

If it is marked as Offline, right-click on the disk and select Reactivate Disk from the context menu. If the disk is partitioned and formatted already, you should be able to use the disk immediately, otherwise follow the instructions above for partitioning and formatting the drive.
