How do you set up an external hard drive?


Turn your computer on and plug the external hard drive into the computer.


Open "Computer Management" by clicking "Start," "Control Panel," "System and Security," "Administrative Tools" and "Computer Management."

Click "Disk Management" in the left pane under "Storage."


Locate your external drive from the list of hard drives connected or installed on your computer.

Right-click the drive and select "Format."


Select a file format from the drop-down menu. Choose "NTFS" if you will be using the external hard drive with a computer that uses Windows 7, Windows Vista or Windows XP.


If you will be using the hard drive with an older version of Windows, select "FAT32."

This is a much less common format.


Click "OK" twice and your external drive is formatted. Once the drive is formatted, it is properly set up to be used with your computer.


hope this helps

Opening of drives


I have seen this several times and it is brought about due to a virus that creates an autorun file (autorun.ini).

In this file when you double click the drive, executes the file and in the autorun file exists any of the following: -
Microsoftpowerpoint.exe
smss.exe
.... or many others.

It is good thing that you have a strong antivirus which seems to have removed the viruses and therefore when the information file is opened, it does not find the executables it was supposed to run. That is why it asks for a program to open.

You can prove this by right clicking on the drive to see a shortcut menu and in this menu, the bolded menu will be the action taken when double clicked and the possibility is that you will find Autorun bolded.

To resolve the issue do the following:
1) Open My computer program or windows explorer.
2) Right click on the drive and open or explore it.
3) Locate the file Autorun and delete it. If the file is not shown, from the folder options choose show all files. This is because sometimes this file may be hidden.

Try double clicking the drives again to see if you get he same error.

NOTE: Many virus developers have made possible for people to install/run viruses in there own computers by simply double clicking the drives like flash disk.

Duuble clicking problem


If this issue is only relevant in the My Computer folder I would ensure you do not have any viruses or other malicious software installed.

Also, check your mouse setting for the double-click function

START>CTRL PANEL>PRINTERS & OTHER HARDWARE>MOUSE (XP View)

START>CTRL PANEL>MOUSE (Classic View)

Then on the BUTTONS tab there is a section for Double Click speed with a folder icon for testing it out. Make sure it is set as required for your use.
