You could run the chkdsk utility

Click start run type cmd then type chkdsk/r/f which will scan for and attempt to recovery any bad sectors and automatically fix any corrupt files on your hard drive there are many ways of running the chkdsk utility or


Click start right click on my computer you should see your drive usually C: select properties click tools check now tick both boxes automatically fix files and scan for and attempt recovery on any bad sectors


then select check now, start should schedule this task when restart

it will only schedule on restart if its the Primary hard drive with an operating system on it

this process can be done on your primary hard drive C:

you might tick one box then return after its finished the first repair then return and tick the second box you should not do anything while the chkdsk utility is in progress any input may damage this drive


I found that you get best results by ticking one box then returning after it has finished then tick the other box
you should have no input while the chkdsk utility is in progress any input may damage your computer and your hard / usb drive


then right click on your drive select properties to see how much space you have

then i would either transfer or cut and paste these documents onto either a pen / data traveller drive or an external usb hard drive

Personally i would go for the pen / data traveller i have heard of to many problems with external usb hard drives

Plug the external hard drive into your laptop or desktop computer.

Most external hard drives do this through a cable connecting the hard drive to the USB outlet on a computer.


Plug your external hard drive into a wall outlet if it receives power from an AC adapter rather than your computer.


or plug your usb pen / data drive into a usb port on your computer


Click start click on computer, you will see all of your drives. C: primary drive D: cd/dvd drive and E: or F: you usb drives

It will be located under the USB connecting drive, which is labeled with a letter ranging from "E:" to "K:".


Open the folder on your external hard drive where you would like to save the documents.

usually in my documents or if you want to save them to a specific spot so as not get them mixed up.


Create a folder if one is not present right click in my documents select new folder and name it lets say my personal docs 1


Move this window to the bottom right corner of your screen to be used in future steps.


Open the folder on your home computer where the files are being stored that you wish to transfer to the external hard drive.


These may be on the desktop, in "My Documents" or elsewhere in your computer.

If you are unsure where they are located, you can always search for them by file name by going to "Start" then "Search."


Right-click on the document, and select "Cut."


Click on the window showing your hard drive files to bring it into use on the screen.

Right-click on the white space in the window where you would like to transfer the files, and select "Paste."


Your files have now been deleted from their original location and transferred to your external hard drive in the folder you selected


hope this helps

How do I transfer files from old computer to new


You can't transfer programs, programs have to be reinstalled.

You can copy things like your My Documents Folder, My Pictures, My Videos, and Favorites to a usb flash drive or an external drive then put the drive into the usb port of the new computer and copy them to the appropriate folders (Documents, Pictures, Music, Videos, etc).

How do I use my WD hard drive to store files so I can free up space on my laptop hard drive?


Hi:
That's an easy task:
1) Plug your Hd to your laptop and wait until the laptop recognize it as a new drive and assign a new letter to it. If you have a disc use it if your laptop ask for it.
2) Copy all files you want to transfer to the new HD and paste them on it.
That's it.

Question about transferring files from computer hard drive.


Is your other drive an external or an internal drive??? If external then attach it to the USB port and see it as an additional drive in My Computer. Then you can use it as any other drive.
If an internal drive then you will have to purchase an adapter that can take this drive and get connected to the PC/laptop to through the USB port. Again visible on My Computer as additional drive and can be used such.
