Contact simpletech about a product replacement if you believe that the item is defective. I had the same problem and they had got me a new one FREE of charge.

I've met space limit for my SimpleTech external drive even though my internal drive still has space and both are 250 GB. Are there SimpleTech programs taking up space and if so how much of that 250 GB...


Your internal drive is different than your external drive. If you put more files onto your SimpleTech drive, then that one is going to fill up faster. The best thing to do would be to go through your SimpleTech drive and delete anything that you don't need. I don't remember my SimpleTech drive coming with any software on the drive, but if it did, it didn't take up much space.

My computer wont read my Simpletech 500gb hardrive


SimpleTech has problems with their controller board. The HDD inside probably still works fine. You might want to get an external chassis and take the hard drive from the SimpleTech and put it into the external chassis. You will need a sata one.
