There is not enough space to do a backup. Is it possible to completely wipe the hard drive and start over?


Sure but you'll lose all your programs, files and documents, etc. Unless you are using W10, your best bet is to buy a new drive ($20-50) rather than wipe and reformat the existing one. You don't say how old it is but you could do that, just to have the current hard drive fail later.

1. Get the new HDD and use free software to "clone" the old hard drive to the new.
2. Or start over, install the OS - (W7 recommended) then use the File & transfer settings to move - only your documents and files, not your programs - to the new HDD. You'd need to reinstall any other programs you have on the old drive.

Here's a great link - don't be intimidated - if you print out the directions and follow them (or get a friend to help) it's not that difficult.

Switch back to XP. Vista has some serious USB issues. Back up will take days or weeks because it is very slow. And in the process you might even damage the hardware because of the extended period of continuous running.Check out the link to find out other users who are cursing VISTA

My niece gave us the verbatim usb160 and backed up our files. This was about 2 months ago and I want to backup only the files that are recently added. How do you do this efficiently?


That depends on what software you used to back it up the first time. What you're looking for is called an incremental backup, and should be accessible from the backup program you used previously. The most efficient way to run it is probably to schedule it to be run periodically, and then it will run automatically. For example, in windows xp you use the backup utility found in start>all programs>accessories>system tools>Backup.
You select the files you want backed up, select the parameters for the backup, and this creates a backup job. Then you run that job, either now or on a schedule. You can create various jobs to backup various data, and each can have its own schedule, or be run once. Detailed instructions for doing this in xp are found here, here, and here.
Details of writing the backup to a cd are here.
Another excellent free backup program is Cobian backup, with downloads and instructions available here.
Finally, you may be interested to read this article, which explains many of the terms involved in making backups, and also stresses the importance of organizing the backup data, so that you may easily access specific items when needed.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Unable to install driver software


There is a problem with this drive and windows vista. Unfortunately both these companies will throw you the run around (Microsoft says talk to Kingston, Kingston says talk to microsoft. It is definetly a Vista issue. There is no driver you can find for vista. I would recommend replacing it with one that you know is compatible with Vista or wait til this problem is fixed. Will work in XP just fine.
Thanks,
Lee
