Question about Freecom (24358) 160 GB Network Hard Drive

1 Answer

Files need updating but we have nothing to update them from

Hi,
We have a Freecom Sync 160GB at work. We used it to move a lot of folders from our network onto the harddrive for storage, to save network space. Some of the folders show their status as 'orphan's and work perfectly, but others say they 'need updating' and say the sync folder is on the network. But we no longer have these files on the network - they were deleted when they were copied onto the harddrive. The affected folders are visible, but they are empty - all their contents have gone. Have we lost the files they contained?
We have Microsoft Windows XP and most of the missing files would have been created with Microsoft Office Word 2003.
Thanks, Louise

Just a long shot but my corrupted Freecom disk started working problem after I simply plugged it into the USB port of a laptop running VISTA. Worth a try as VISTA has the ability to uncorrupt disk structures.

In the iTunes source list, choose the iPod, and make sure that you have selected the Summary tab in iTunes' main window. Open up the My Computer icon from either your desktop or the Start menu, and select your iPod from the window. In the My Computer window, open up the Tool menu and click on Folder Options.

Itunes knocks out DVD/CD driver whenever I update Itunes.


Solution 1

Check with your manufacturer to see if there are updated software drivers for your optical drive. For more information about updating the firmware of your CD or DVD drive,

Solution 2

Launch Windows Explorer.
Navigate to C:\Windows\system32\drivers\.
Check to see if either of the following 2 files are present. These files from a third-party software vendor are not supported by Windows Vista and can cause driver conflicts with optical drives:
afs.sys
afs2k.sys
If either of the files in Step 3 are present, move them out of the system32 folder. You should keep these files stored somewhere on your hard drive, as some of your older peripherals may require them. If you find that they are required in the future to use a device, you may move them back into the system32 folder temporarily.
Reboot Windows Vista.

Solution 3

Quit iTunes.
Manually remove the GEAR driver software using the steps found here.
Remove any stand alone GEAR software installers from the Programs and Features control panel, if present.
Install the updated GEAR driver.

Things to ponder before deleting

Rather then deleting them right away, try moving the "day the files were uploaded" to another drive. Then try accessing the files on your memorex. Do the files and folders open properly? There not corrupt? Has the memorex hdd drive recreated the folder you just moved? etc...

Once your satisfied that yes there are two copies then you could safely remove one.

Yh-925 Hanging at Status: Updating


Firmware update erased all the files, hence there are none to see.

On the desktop, restart the computer - it should work properly after that.

If more trouble persists:
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx

The connection to the spy sweeper engine has been lost or terminated. Sky sweeper will now close and restart


CLEAN INSTALL needed here.
Try un-installing after the un-install, shut down completely for at least 30 seconds, and then restart. This releases any "Locked files" for deletion.
Then do a search in 'all files and folders' - search for both Weebroot and then Spy Sweeper, with the options "Search system folders", "Search hidden files and folders" and "Search subfolders" checked. Delete all of those files found.
You should do this search and delete whenever you un-install any programs. It will remove lots and lots of leftover junk files and corrupted files taking up room on your hard drive. It will also give you a "clean install" when you reinstall or install an updated program. (Do this ESPECIALLY when updating to a NEW anti-virus programs and “Internet Security Suite” programs such as McAfee or Norton etc.)
BEFORE RE-INSTALLING Spy Sweeper
Download and install "Registry Mechanic" then do the updates prior to running it and removing anything for the first time. This will get rid of all your current Registry errors, prior to installing or reinstalling.
