You can store files by dragging them to the window that the hard drive is open in. You can also retrieve files by dragging them from the hard drive and dragging them back to your documents or desktop. This should FixYa.

Depending on your operating system this may vary in windows7 click start control panel you should see system security tab in that back up then windows will ask for a back up DESTINATION location you can select either dvd or another device or

in XP click start all programs accessories system tools you should see back up after the back up finishes windows will tell you your computer back up was successfull
also you could right click on the back up file select properties this will tell you how many GB were used
also you might use the easy transfer

May seem like a silly question you are not booting up computer with ext drive still plugged in are you?
i am assuming your operating system is on the internal drive.
if so don't have the external plugged in when you start up.

My computer is not recognizing my Western Digital passport elite what do I do?


Have to check it in the Device Manager that the new device have been detected or not. It may happen that when the external HDD connects to the computer for the first time computer cannot detect it as it is not properly formatted in proper file-system. Open Computer Management and click on Disk Management and format the device correctly to operate.

Plugged it in and the computer states there was a problem and will not recognize it have XP operating system Firelite 250 gb 5400 rpm


If the hard drive that you're installing has an operating system on it already, like Windows XP, you can't just move the hard drive from machine to machine if the computers are different. When you install Windows (or most other operating systems), the operating system customizes itself to the hardware in the computer. If you pull that hard drive out and install it on a completely different computer, Windows will most likely fail to boot and give errors and blue screens. This is normal. You will need to reinstall or repair the operating system if you want to keep the new hard drive in the machine.

You don't say which version of Operating system you are using. My thoughts are to first go to "my computer" and see if your drive shows up there. If not, get to disk management and see if it shows up there. The crash possibly could have messed up your external drive, and now it needs to be initialized and/or formatted.

My computer isn't recognizing my new Toshiba Roco 250 gb external hard drive


If it is new and has not worked at all, you should try using it on another computer that, if possible, has a different operating system. My first option would be to create a partition using a 3rd party partition creator.

My WD 250GB passport portable hard drive is not recognized


If your system detects the connected device that is a good start. Was the drive formatted for another operating system? Certainly try the drive on another system and/or another drive on your system.
