Redemption software (Nomad) does not install on my HD500UHE5-72

I've just purchased an external hybrid drive and the installation process didn't work. I got an error message saying that file -145 could not be copied... I went on Acomdata's website and could not find any download links... What can I do before I return the disk to the store for credit?

SOURCE: Installing old drive into new drive

If the problem is in the controller inside the case which in 99 percent of the times it is, This will certainly fix your problem. The MTBF(mean time between failure) of harddrives is 100,000 hours of operation. Also, any external case can be used that matches your hard drives specs...size, IDE, SATA ect...

Hope this helps you,

SOURCE: Not enough disk space to copy

Scan the drive due to possibly virus managing your disk drive. Virus can easily access through USB hard drives. If not solve the problem, so its better to format.

Try rebooting the computer first with the drive not connected to it.
After the computer reboots, make sure the accomdata is turned off then connect the usb cable. Then turn it on and you should get the password dialog box and be able to access it.

Toshiba backup software

Determine how much space you'll need to back up your Toshiba laptop's hard drive.

If you are intending to back up your entire hard drive, or have a lot of video and music files you want to save, you'll likely need an external hard drive.

On the other hand, if you only want to back up your most important documents, a USB drive should suffice.

Separate your video, music, pictures, games and documents into separate folders.

Right-click each folder and then click "Properties." Do this for your C: drive, too.

Locate the "Size" or "Capacity" section on the "General" tab.

The number to the right indicates how large the folder is, with all the files included.

This information should give you an idea of what kind of secondary storage system you'll require. If you're looking at over 100GB of storage space needed, you'll probably want an external hard drive.

Purchase an appropriate drive that includes backup utilities.

Some external drives and USB drives come with backup software.

Once you install and configure the software, all you have to do is press a button--either on the drive itself or on your computer's desktop or taskbar--to start the backup process.

Schedule your drive's utility software to back up your Toshiba laptop files once a month.

Your USB or external drive should be plugged into the laptop on the scheduled backup dates.

Store your most important files on an online storage facility, such as Mozy, DropBox or Toshiba Online Backup.

In case anything causes damage to both your laptop hard drive and your spare drive, you will still be able to access the files online.

Backing up your computer shouldn't be a tedious task. Macrium Reflect Free Edition makes file backup incredibly easy thanks to its intuitive user interface and helpful wizards.

hope this helps

My external hard drive os gives a clicking sound

Improve the FixYa experience for everyone by voting.


It sounds as though you have software incompatibility problem. With a bit of good fortune, Microsoft can diagnose the problem( s) and fix it in three easy clicks and it's free. CLICK HERE

If that doesn't do the job, you'll have to format the hard drive. Hopefully, you've been backing up everything on the external drive because the formatting process erases everything.

I've met space limit for my SimpleTech external drive even though my internal drive still has space and both are 250 GB. Are there SimpleTech programs taking up space and if so how much of that 250 GB...

Your internal drive is different than your external drive. If you put more files onto your SimpleTech drive, then that one is going to fill up faster. The best thing to do would be to go through your SimpleTech drive and delete anything that you don't need. I don't remember my SimpleTech drive coming with any software on the drive, but if it did, it didn't take up much space.

Hello Zherin,

Please try the Data Recovery Software available in market to recover the files.Connect your external Transcend Hard Drive in the good windows machine. Install the demo software of the data recovery software( Recover Data for FAT and NTFS) from their particular website. Then scan the external Transcend Hard Drive using the Data Recovery Software. The software will take more time to scan the 500 GB Hard Drive. If the demo software displays all your data you need then purchase their full version software to save your valuable data. Because in demo software you are not able to save the data. Please try the data recovery software for FAT and NTFS partition.

Seagate FreeAgent external hard drive 500GB not recognising directory tree

Its the rubbish software that Seagate have bundled with their drive which will not allow you to backup the system folders. Solution is to use another backup utility, a google search will quickly locate numerous FREE software products which will alow you to copy anything. Unfortunately when you start googling about this drive you may be quite distressed about your purchase, as i have been :( Problems lay ahead with this drive due to inadequate cooling.....

I need instructions on how to use purchased external storage unit purchased, no instructions included

Because the reformat or restore process erases everything on your computer, it is critical to have a backup of any important files on your computer. You will also need your original software install disks to reinstall any software you have purchased.
  • Write down or print out all notes and internet pages because once the format process begins, you will no longer have access to them (or anything else in the PC)
  • As already stated, BACKUP all important files and data! When you reformat your computer everything will be erased!
  • Make sure you have all the CDs and other software. All programs will have to be reinstalled after you format the hard drive. Don't forget about software that came with hardware such as printers, scanners, etc.
  • Write down the brand and information for all the hardware on your computer. Look in the Device Manager and make note of the brand and model of network adaptors, video cards, sound cards, printers, modems, and displays. After reformatting you might need this information to reinstall drivers. You might want to read from this site
