If you clear/format the external and you have whatever program you are using to backup, it will start backing up again. Make sure you do not delete any critical files you have backed up before wiping it.

Hi My Seagate drive states it is full and backups have stopped. Why is this happening and how do i fix it so it starts backing up again. Thanks


If your seagate drive is full then it wont let you back it up you will need a bigger storage space or by cleaning out your computer you can remove the backup by going into backup options locate by double clicking the flag in the bottom right hand side of your monitor and delete it or by going into your seagate and deleting the backup folder forcing it to back it all up again

I want to back up my hard drive onto my Elements external drive. The computer says that the Elements 3607 does not have enough space. What do I do?


Well first of all check how many free space you have on your ext. drive. If you DO have enough to back-up your files,then i would suggest you right clicking on your ext. drive,choose properties and format it,but beware,formating will delete ALL your data on external drive.
If you think i was usefull,click on Thumbs up button,cheers!

Power loss in external harddrive


Hi mjcole,
Couple things. What model WD drive do you have? Plugging the laptop adapter into the drive chassis may have fried the chassis. You can buy a new chassis and put your drive into it, or you can buy a new power supply in case the one you have has gone bad and you did not realize it. Not likely though.

The power requirements are very specific and the laptop power supply may have been to much for the WD drive.

I bought a new WD Elements 350gb external hard drive and it came with a Memeo software CD. It says to insert CD before starting backup. I do not appear to be able to use this external hard drive as a plug...


This software is not linked with the drive (with this particular drive you only get a trial version anyway). Just remove the software from your PC.

Start > Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs > Remove Memeo/ WD Anywhere Backup.

Once you have done that, you can delete everything on it (assuming you never manually put something on it apart from the backup). If so, back it up onto your PC, another drive or CD.

Please do a defrag on the harddrive. Also delete temp file and prefetch. command is
Click start-run -type %temp% hit enter it will open in folder showing all files select all and delete all.

it will open in folder showing all files select all and delete all.
Empty the recycle bin .Then check good luck.

I can't backup files, because it says I have no more room. How can I fix this?


Delete some files or backups. If your backups are appending or creating a new file every time without replacing the old ones, it will eventually fill up.

If the drive is not full, it may be your file system. If the partition is formatted FAT32, you have a maximum file size of 4 GB. The backup will proceed until the file size reaches 4 GB, then it will close out and the rest of the files will not be backed up.

Using Disk Management, you can create a new partition, this tiime NTFS. Unfortunately, you'll lose all files on the drive when you partition so you'll need a place to move the files to temporarily.

No power to external harddrive


Yes, without a doubt!

I highly recommend sending it back for repairs or replacement. Most are covered under a 6 month warranty depending on the deal, and the country you are in as well. And computer shops don't generally fix things like External Drives, since they are not as a important part of a PC, but as a backup or storage device.

Good luck mate.

My D: drive is 99% full how do I free up disk space ?


Music, video and pictures use the most hard drive space. Store them on a disc or on line storage site. After the delete or removing as advised, defrag you hard drive. This should free up space. Get rid of any programs you don't use. As long as you don't delete hidden files you should be fine. Hope this helps. If you are using windows XP go to start, control panel add and remove programs and delete only the programs that you installed and remove only them.
