How do I retrieve my files from Canvio Basics 3.0?


The usual way to back up files is to just open my computer and open the drive that is the external hard disk and just drag and copy the files over. You would then do the same this king to drag the files back to your computer. I am assuming you did not do this and usedsome software that came wwith the drive. In that case I would still open the drive in my computer to see if its there or otherwise u need to use the same software u used to backup the files to recoverthem. If you ccan't figure it out I would redo saving the files the normal way like I explained before . An internal hard drive or even external storage device like USB thumb drive simply shows upas a new drive when plugged in. Do not use an software to save files as usually they are proprietary and use compression which is iinconvenient or makes it difficult to recover

How do you retrieve raw files from external hard drive? What format are they in? Will they be the same quality?


Files are Files are Files. The .raw file type is just a specific method of saving data with a lot of information. The .jpg's are a much more compressed version that really save a lot of space, whether it be on a hard drive or memory card.

You should be able to use your external drives much like a memory card or internal hard drive. You should be able to move files from one drive to another, deleting or copying files wherever you feel necessary. There will be no loss of quality if you move a file from point A to point B.

I cant seem to use my 320 gb mobile hard drive. when i connect it to the usb, my laptop reads it but i cant save files into it..help me please.


try to connect your device into your pc and then, try to save files again, if this doesnt work, try to reformat your hard drive, im sorry to say that all your previous files will be deleted upon the format. after this, make partitions to hard drive. then save some of your files into it. if that doesn't work either, try a disk scan to check if your hard drive has bad sectors.

Video files clogging hard drive


If they are video files, movies and the like, the best way is to burn them to a disk and then simply delete them from the drive.

My maxtor external hard drive has done a scheguled Plan b backup but files that I removed from my master hard drive to free up space because I had them saved on my external hard drive are now missing from...


When a file is delete, it's still there on the drive, just as before; all that happens is that the file table marks it as free space and changes its name so it's no longer visible. There are a number of "undelete" utilities available, including several good ones, like asoftech data recovery that helped me before:
