Brand New Simple Drive won't connect again to comp.

I had to do a system restore on my pc, so I saved all my important files to a brand new simple drive. It worked, but now when I try to transfer my files from the simple drive back on to my pc, it won't recognize my simple drive when I plug it in. How do I fix that??

    I'm having a similar problem on my 320gb SimpleDrive. I backed up all my files on it, and now my computer can't read the drive. I've tried it on several different USB ports, with no luck.

Try plugging the simple drive into another USB port to see if it is recognized.

If this doesn't solve your issue, let me know.

Need restore my RAW file system back to NTFS without losing any hard drive files?


Still don't know what you can do to rescue your lost drive files right now?
OK! I have ever followed a video tutorial to resolve solve such hard drive data loss problems from here:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S1F72QPGHm8
You can also check it and follow its steps to see whether all your files could be restored successfully.
In the future, to avoid such data loss troubles, always regularly save your drive stuffs on several places, not only on one hard drive.

Deleted file...how can iget it again?


You can often successfully recover deleted files from a PC, phone or camera memory card or USB Memory stick, it just depends on what's happened since the files were deleted.
When you delete files the data itself isn't deleted, just the index entry that says where the data for those files is located. The space containing the deleted files is also now marked as free space so it is available to the system for any new files to be written there instead.

If and when that happens, then it becomes too late to recover your deleted files so it is very, very important to not save any new files or data to the device concerned.
If the deleted files are on a memory card or USB memory stick, just don't save any new files to it.

One of the easiest ways to see if you can recover deleted files is to try some file recovery software. Recommended asoftech data recovery as it saved my life many times.

Oo.comhi. if i delete my files from SDR-H85 PANASONIC how i will recover back without problem. i did with one program but didnt help.


http://majorgeeks.com/FreeUndelete_d4407.html

FreeUndelete restores deleted files, including those removed from Windows Recycle Bin. In case of accidental removal of files on a NTFS (1.0 and 2.0) (default for Windows Vista , XP, 2000 and NT), FAT32, FAT16 or FAT12 file systems this is the utility to help.
Supported file systems:
NTFS 1.0, NTFS 2.0, FAT12, FAT16 and FAT32
The recovered files are saved into a new user-selected location to prevent overwriting the deleted files on the original media. hope this helps

I have deleted some files on a Western Digital My Book external HD. It is a LAN drive. Do not know how to undelete these files again.


If you are using windows, files are transferred to the Recycle Bin before permanent deletion unless they are too large, in which case they are permanently deleted.

After permanent deletion, recovery is not possible without specialist reconstruction software and even then may be very difficult or impossible, especially if the drive has been defragmented or formatted

I have a Simple Tech (simple Drive) 320GB external hard drive.the light comes on But my computer won`t recognize it. The light comes on but that`s it.


Try connecting the drive to a different computer, to see if your computer is the problem.

If necessary, open the external case, and separate the disk-drive from the USB-to-disk-drive adapter.

Connect the disk-drive as a "slave" disk-drive in some computer, to see if the disk-drive itself still can be accessed.

If not, and you have "important" data on the disk-drive, search the Internet for a professional "Data Recovery Service" -- you ship your disk-drive to them, pay them a lot of money, and they repair the disk-drive, just long-enough to copy your files to a brand-new disk-drive.

My toshiba satellite pro 4600 laptop has a error PXE-E61 media test failure, check cable and PXE-MOF existing Intel PXE ROM


Hi,

This error relates to an antiquated boot system used mostly for dumb terminals. It's coming up because the laptop isn't detecting a hard drive that is bootable or a bootable dvd so it continues down it's list of options and tries to boot from your network card.

This means the harddrive in your laptop is damaged or failing. If there's nothing of importance on the drive or if whatever important stuff is on there is backed up elsewhere. Buy a new drive(or have your local PC shop put one in) and use the factory Toshiba restore disks to get up and running again.

If you do have important files on the drive you can still get it up and running, but save the old drive(pack in an anti-static bag), and contact www.armor-it.com for professional assistance retreiving whatever files you need from the failing drive.

Let me know how you make out or if you need further assitance.

My usb flashdisk become raw data


1). Do not format this hard drive before you've recovered all your stored data back. In your case, the formatting process may erase everything on your drive and make your data gone permanently.
2). Never save anything new on this drive in case that any new file would rewrite your original data.
3). Plunge this drive to your computer and download a RAW drive data recovery freeware to get back all your lost data back:
http://www.freeware-fix.blogspot.com/2013/02/raw-hard-drive-recovery.html
This hard drive has helped many people around me restore their inaccessible data back from a RAW drive or memory card. It can also work perfectly on your drive.
Read more detailed information of this freeware here:
http://blog4mark.blogspot.com/2012/10/help-external-drive-became-raw.html
4). Save and back up all your restored data on another drive in case of data recovery failure.
5). Format this drive to see whether it is fixable.

Local Disk(D:) is not accessible Access is denied


This occurs when the drive was taken from a PC where someone made the drive un-shareable.
The fix in XP:
1. Turn off Simple File Sharing, via Explorer, Tools, Folder Options, View, (NOT) use Simple File Sharing.
2. Now when you right click the drive letter for the drive on the new PC you will see a Security tab (made invisible by Simple File Sharing).
3. On the Security Tab, add yourself or any user, and grant Full Permission.
4. Now you can Explore the drive like any other.
