SOURCE: Transferring Files to External Hard drive

I would suggest you find a backup program to do all this for you. I use EZBackItUp ( a nice freeware program that is easy to set up. Once the files are backed up, though, you should not delete them from your C: drive, as the program will them delete them from the backup too. What you should try to do is move big files (movies, music, etc) to the external drive, which will give you more space on your C: drive. And, as always, make sure you run a good cleaning program ( for a great one, download and install) to reclaim some disk space.

Good Luck, and I applaud you for having a backup!

Hi. Thanks for your question.

  • Here's what else you can do.
  1. Check the USB cable. Make sure it's connected securely. to make sure test with other device or computer to determine that cable is OK.
  2. Once you know you are using good cable you need to make sure that Hard Drive isn't at fault. Trying to use it in other PC is the best method of making sure that everything is OK with it.

Do not hesitate to come back and ask more if none of these solutions helped you. I am sure one of FixYa expert's will be able to help you.

Thank You for using FixYa.

How do I save files to my Toshiba canvio slim 11 portable external hard drive

you should find someone local to help you out with that, its a little complicated to explain via text. its not a complicated process, there are just a few different ways to do it, depending on how many files you need to back up.

1. find the file you want to copy (this could be a folder, too).
2. right click and select "copy"
3. go to "computer" or "my computer" and double click the toshiba drive.
4. right click and select "paste" and that will copy it.

as i said, there are other ways of copying files, but that's probably the simplest way, although not necessarily the easiest, if you have a lot of files.

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

I cannot drag files in the Toshiba Canvio Basics 2,0 TB

Please test it by cutting a data file and pasting it in this hard drive. If it is success, then probably the type of your data is different and it is not freely moveable, or you it is possible that you tried to move the files to the same folder (it happens when the user opens many Windows Explorer/File Manager).

Omnitech not find exe file

Dear Gxp_mc16,

Can you open your external and see all files? If you can open it and can access any other files inside the external drive then the problem will have more chances to resolve. For the first step you might need to try this software: download it and install it on your computer and follow the steps. If the problem is not too serious the software will solve it.

My case two weeks ago with Canvio 3.0 500GB was even more difficult. I could not see and access my external after my computer crashed and the external attached to it. My Windows OS computer always ask me to "reformat" the external drive. I tried it with other computers all with WIN 7 OS, same problem. My external need to be reformat. It made me crazy because there are too many important files in it. Then I met this software . I Install the software and I scan the external for the whole night (about 8 hours). Luckily, all my files could be recovered and accessed although it is separated. Then I copied all important files into my internal drive. Then I reformatted the Canvio. Until now I am still using it without any problem.

Will the toshiba canvio desktop 3tb hard drive work with the LG 47LM6700 tv?

Depends on the format your hard drives in (personally I'd just use a PC with an HDMI cable) and whether your TV supports USB file reading.

Toshina External Hard Drive backup files in

Which program did you create the backup with? You'll need to install a copy of that software on your new computer. Then you will let the software find the backup and restore it. This will only work if you used a file backup. Many backup programs do not restore to systems with different hardware (different CPU, hard drive, OS, etc.).

However, I don't know which software uses *. PFT, pfi or pfp extensions. PBF is the format for one of the older Paragon Backup software versions. Acronis uses *.TIB . For a list of many of the software extensions used for backups, see .

Canvio drives used to include NTI BackupNow EZ software. However, I believe that NTI backups use BJF or NTI extensions. The installer for that is here: . To check for other software for your external drive, try looking up your drive at . The available drivers and software should be listed. Alternatively, check if the backup software installer is still on the external drive.

I hope this helps.
