Question about Seagate FreeAgent Pro - 500GB, 7200 RPM, USB 2.0, eSATA, External 500 GB Hard Drive
I get a message saying there is no space while there is 279GB free space. I used my Seagate ext hard drive seldom. I tried to clean it up - get the msg that I am not authorized.
First of all HI :)
I posted this on your other thead as well but for some reason it is not getting through. The main problem you have is that the file system of your hard drive is FAT32 not NTFS. You need to change it to NTFS in order to work. Here is how.
>> Copy all your data (the 50+GB you used) on to another hard drive
>> Now from My Computer
>> RIGHT CLICK
>> CHOOSE FORMAT
>> CHOOSE NTFS FILING SYSTEM
>> instead of FAT32 and
>> give your hard drive a nice full FORMAT
This will take a while and WARNING you will LOSE all your DATA so DOUBLE CHECK BEFORE YOU START THAT YOU COPIED EVERYTHING.
Hope that this Fixya Helps you :) With reference to the you do not have permission message it means that you are not logged in as administrator. Best solution is to clean it up on a computer on which you are the administrator to make full use of it.
(please take some time to rate solution thanks)
