Question about Freecom (24358) 160 GB Network Hard Drive

Freecom 400gb Drive

I had a Freecom 400gb Hard drive running but it was getting close to its capacity, to solve this problem I purchased another 400gb drive. I installed the Freecom software for the second time (I had initially installed it when I purchsed my first external drive.) My computer briefly recognised that I now had two external drives. However, whenever I now turn on the computer it recognises one of the drives (the first one I installed) but not the second. Is there anything I should have done but didn't do? I look forward to your replies

Have you tried to connect those drive individually and checked if they get detected when stand-alone? If they get detected stand-alone, install the Freedom software happen. Cheers

Is this a SATA drive and what operating system is loaded on it? .
you may have to insert the installation disk to reset the password.
There is a Linux program on the internet to reset the password to default but there is no guarantee to this. This is for Windows XP
2. You can also get some one with a Linux box to view and backup your data on another hard drive but the PC will have to be compatible to accommodate the hard drive capacity.
3. Try not entering a password at all when in the password/ user screen "hit enter"

My computer has found new hardware for my freecom external storag

It should automatically allocate a drive letter to it. Go to windows explorer and hit F5 to refresh the display and you should see a new drive letter with the name of FREECOM next to it.

My 160g freecom hard drive has stopped showing my files says its empty but i have 20g of space used how can i get them to show up again?

make sure your reading the files on the same type of system.. if it is formated in NTSF you can only read in in newer windows systems, if it is in FAT32 it needs to be read on a fat32 system

Freecom network drive corrupted

Sounds like it needs re-formating.

You might try>

Look through there to see if they have a utility that can sort the problem out....
Or a FAQ section where there might be a bit of help with the problem...

These drives need to be in open air or they can overheat and stop working.

Right click on the F:\ ,click format.

Look to see if the details of the drive are in the window.

Capacity ? 150gb ? or something close.
File system NFTS ?

If these details are there you can format the disk again.
