Wd notebook/my book help


Hello purplebubble,

Purchasing the notebook for backups was a smart move. It's always good to have backups. When you plug the notebook into your computer, it will be assigned a drive letter like D:\ or E:\. When you open up My Computer you should see it with the other drives, like your CDROM, and C:\ Local Disk.

Go ahead and click on that drive and it will open to a blank page. That's ok! since you haven't put anything on it yet, it should be blank. When you create your backup, just make sure when the backup program asks you about where you want to place the backup, answer that drive letter, and the rest will take care of itself.

Good Luck, and don't forget to leave a rating.

Thanks Mark

Greetings.

You will need to have a third party software to achieve this. I recommend norton partition magic. I have been using it in the same scenario as yours and works. they now support firewire. Easy to use and gets the job done.

Hope that helps.

Trying to format a 500GB HDD at full capacity


check your bios if the disk is recognized as 500gb first. if it is not recognized, update your motherboard bios. most updates are available in their manufacturers site.
