Question about Click Free Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have 60 gb of pics from my grandsons lives on a clickfree 1tb external drive. We moved, I plugged it back in, and now I can't access the data.

It worked - we moved - now it says 'this drive is not formatted for windows. you will have to push master reset, but this will erase all data on this drive'. I contacted clickfree, and they said 'if you get the prompt to format the drive/Master Reset, then you will have to follow that prompt but this, again, will erase all the files on the C6 and then you will have to redo the backup.'. I asked them if there was a FIX, not an 'sorry, erase it and lose all your pics'. I know I shouldn't have put these on only one drive, but I did. Is it recoverable?? Maybe NCIS, or CSI??

Yes, it probably is recoverable. I have often recovered data from drives with this issue but it is not simple and if you make a mistake you can further damage your data. Your best bet is to contact a data recover specialist. Try to remember that hard drives are physical devices and all physical devices will eventually fail. If something is important, you need to have more than one copy.

I need to know what power supply is needed for my C2 HD 1037 external hard drive.


I would start by contacting them on their website.
I don't see anywhere where you can but just the power supply but it wouldn't hurt to ask them about it.

Back up 50% took 10 hours still backing up. should it take this long?

That depends on how much data you are backing up, and the speed of your connection. Also some providers will automatically throttle down your speed once you reach a certain amount of data.The only thing you normally need to backup are documents and pictures. It sounds like you might have started a full system backup that will also include the operating system.

I need to format my HD325 click free for mac

I'm sure the OP no longer needs to format their Clickfree C1 HD325 for use on Mac OS X, but I'll answer this question for anyone else who may need a solution.

Before you begin, there are a few things that you should know about Clickfree C1 and Mac OS X compatibility:
-Most Clickfree devices are compatible with Mac OS X 10.5 or higher, but there are some Clickfree C1 devices that aren't compatible with Mac OS X. If your Clickfree C1 was manufactured prior to 2009: your Clickfree C1 won't be compatible with Mac OS X.
-Take a look at the label located underneath the Clickfree C1: if you see WD08xxXM (WD08 is what's important here, you can ignore the rest of the numbers/letters that follow), your Clickfree won't be Mac OS X compatible.
-Formatting the Clickfree C1 using HFS+ will prevent any Windows operating system from detecting the Clickfree correctly. Try formatting the Clickfree in NTFS from a Windows computer for compatibility with both Mac OS X and Windows.

-A Mac using OS X version 10.5 or better
-Administrator rights

Try the following steps to format your Clickfree C1 for use on a Mac (note that this will erase the contents on your Clickfree C1):
a. Using your keyboard, press the option key + command key + spacebar at the same time; a finder window will appear
b. In the search field located at the top-right of the window, type: Disk Utility
c. Finder will perform a search, and will display the Disk Utility application icon; double-click on the Disk Utility. The Disk Utility application will start
d. Plug your Clickfree into USB, wait a few moments for the application to recognize the Clickfree
e. Click on Clickfree Backup Media from the left side of the Disk Utility window
f. Select the Erase tab
g. Click on the Volume Format drop-down, select: "Mac OS Extended (Journaled)"
h. In the Name field, type: CF_Storage
i. Click on the "Erase" button.
j. Once the erasing is complete, close the application
k. Unplug your Clickfree from USB
l. Plug your Clickfree back into USB

External Hard Drive not Accessible after Windows Vista Update

Assuming that the external hdd is physically working fine, everything is pointing to a damaged boot sector.

You can get back most (if not all) your data stored in your external drive with the help of an application called: Pc Inspector File recovery.
Its a freeware.
Here is the link:

Simply install it on your C:\ drive, and follow the prompts.
Please let us know the outcome.

Sony Vaio laptop could not access 1TB external hard drive

try other usb port, or other computer and see whether the hdd is detected. If still not, try to go to device manager ( ), and then assign a drive letter to the hdd. After that, try to access it from Computer, if not able to access it, format it (use quick format) and then use this data recovery program to recover your files.

Calvary 1TB USB 2Bay external hard drive problem

The problem could be the enclosure, not the drive.
I would take the drive out of the Calvary enclosure and install it in another one. Hopefully it will come up and you can access your data.
