Toshiba 1tb harddriver


Hi t rope
It sounds like your hard drive may be faulty, you can try another usb lead to see if this is the problem, otherwise the drive or enclosure may be faulty. Hope this helps.

Tip

Unaccessible harddrive, or password protection on


If you cant format or access a harddrive due to encryption,corruption,password or other reason,
WARNING! THIS WILL ERASE ALL FILES ON YOUR DRIVE!
The last effort can be to try to boot up your computer in DOS-mode,
with a software that totally wipes/overwrites the disks sectors.
The harddrive must be direct connected to the motherboard,
not by anykind off usb-cord or any usb-port.
using a freeware program called "KILLDISK".You can find the software if you go to WWW.GOOGLE.COM and search for KILLDISK.
it totally wipes your harddrives sectors, eliminating all corruptions.
It can also be used for erasing confidential information from drives.
If this was helpfull, Please vote!

My computer wont read my iomega external hard drive but read before now its just local disk c ...try to open but will freeze ...have a lot of stuff on hard drive so i cant just format it again...


This is quite a tough one, First does the external hard drive appear when on your computer at all? I would assume disk "c:" that you mention is your main drive or your internal harddrive. If you don't see your external on the computer when you have it plugged in and turned on. Then there is a promblem. 1) Make sure driver is installed, usually when you turn on the external harddrive or plug it in to the computer, the windows sound (found device) usually pops up. 2) Check all connections if all is properly made, and if you have another computer, test it on that computer if you get another different result. If same result is made, and all connection are properly secured. Then you external harddrive enclosure, or the harddrive disk inside it is bad. 3) Listen to your harddrive to see if you hear the drive inside it spins, or if it is making any noise. If spin you could be ok, if it is humming or clicking loudly like it's stuck, then you are kind of done for and could pretty much say goodby to all those files and stuff (with exception) 4) You can take the hard disk inside the external enclosure and hook it up to a computer (if you need help how to, let me know) and see if the computer is able to read it. If not, then definitly your drive is damaged. You can still recover the files, but can't gaurentee a full recovery. In that case, you can take it to bestbuy, office depot, and tell them about the promblem and have them do a data recovery. It is costly, I mean very costly. Anywhere from $250-$750+
Now, if your computer could detect it and give it a drive letter for exmaple D:, but unable to access the files, you can probraly do a error-checking when right click for propertie of the drive.

Vista wants me to format my external harddrive.


Can you access this drive on a non-Vista system? If so, try the Simple Tech WWW site for a diagnostics program?

There are also a number of other software programs that can detect and mark the bad sectors or locations on your drive as bad.

Once those sectors are marked (at the FAT Table) as bad Vista may allow you to access that drive again. IF it does, copy everything available to a DVD. Now reformat the drive but DON'T trust it.

Bottom line is that I personally would not trust that drive again with ANY data that is important to me... I hope you will agree with me. If you decide to use it anyway please backup to two locations or drives!

Good Luck!
