Maxtor Basics 1.5 TB problem. I'm running on Vista 64bit. Couple days ago I was defragmenting my external HD with a new version of O&O defrag, and decided to leave it defragmenting on the background...

It looks like you may have had some sort of corruption in your partition(s) on the drive. If you need to try and recover data on it do not do a "New Simple Volume" it will create a new partition I believe and wipe out your information.

I think your best bet, is find a partition manager application like Easeus (Free download I believe).... some of them have "REPAIR" options for partitions. Or see if the Disk Management has a repair option. You may need to use the partition utility to create a boot disk (most have this option) so that you are not booting into Windows when you try to do the repair....but since it's an external drive I dont think you will have to do this.

But if you need data from the NOT create a new partition, and do NOT do a FORMAT...these will erase your data.

Good Luck

Hi, I've just bought a Sumvision Cyclone Primus 2TB and after connecting it to my laptop it installs the drivers. Once this is complete a Microsoft Windows pop-up comes up saying "you need to format...

Try putting the unit back on your laptop and using the windows disk management utility. The directions are below. Windows Vista is a bit differenct than either windows 7 or XP.

Right click on you "Computer" Icon in your start menu

A menu will open

Chose "Manage"

The Computer Management window will open

The Computer Management window is broken down into 3 sections.

The first section on the left side of the window shows a menu. Disk Management is on the lower portion of the menu.

The right side is separated into two sections, top and bottom. The top portion shows a list of active drives on the computer. The lower portion shows all drives connected to the computer. CD or DVD drives that have not disk will not show as active drives on the top section, but can be seen in the lower section.

The lower section will show the drive description, drive size and drive condition (online or off line) in small box on the left side of that section. Disk drives will designate a "Drive" and a number. Drive 0 is usually your internal hard drive. Then it would list drive 1, drive 2, etc, depending on how many internal and external drive sources you have connected to your computer. Then it will list your CD drives and generally show their drive letter assignments.

Next to the smaller section described above, is a larger section which shows the driver letter, size of the driver and condition (if working correctly will show "healthy")

This is the area you can right click and get a menu that will allow you to open, explore, mark the partition as active, change the driver letter, format the drive or delete a partition. (A note of caution here. Changing the driver letter on your main hard drive partition will cause windows to stop functioning. The main hard drive, or hard drive partition, is normally given the letter "C".) A hard drive may show two or more partitions with separate drive letters designated for each partition.

A drive that is having a problem may show that it needs to be formatted (status as Unformatted). This can be done from this window. An external drive, whether it is a hard drive or CD/DVD drive, can have the letter designator change done if you want to organize your external drives. There are times when a drive will not show up because the drive letter that they are programmed to use are taken. Most USB drives are programmed to us the letters "F" or "G". In this area, you can assign the USB drive any drive letter that is not being used and this will make it visible in windows.

See if this helps you manage the external disk and get it formatted so you can use it on your laptop.

If you found this answer helpful, please remember to leave positive feedback.

Thank You,

How do i erase files from hard drive?

In order to erase the files off of a hard drive, there are multiple approaches towards accomplishing your goal.
There are different types of erases, the most basic (format) is what just writes a file to the hard drive allowing all the files on it to be overwritten. The files will still be able to be recovered through this process. To prevent this there are other types of formats which write zeros to the data...this process usually takes a considerably lengthy amount of time depending on the size of you hard drive.
To go about these ways, one way is that you can remove the hard drive and place it inside an external enclosure..then plugging the external enclosure into another computer and running a software to format the external drive. Another way is using a windows recovery cd, and reinstalling windows on the hard drive by deleting the partition and making a raw partition and installing windows onto it.
Hope this helps.

Running Windows 7 Home premium. External drive Verbatim USB 250 Silver is recognized, but, needs to be reformatted. I've tried to format (NTSF) using tool in Disk Management. Format runs forever and...

Hello and thank you for using Fixya's services.

This problem happens quite a bit with Windows Vista. It seems that Windows Vista puts a hidden file in the backup; which locks the device.

Open the external device (Windows 7 is fine). Click on "view hidden folders and files." Delete any hidden files you may have in the external.

Go back to "my computer" and right click on the external hard drive letter. Choose properties and security tab. Make your user-name as a main user (administrator) and disable the read only.

Reboot the computer and see if this works.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
