Question about Seagate 80GB USB 2.0 External Hard Drive (9W2681540)
I have a seagate 80 gb external hardrive. I use it to back up my laptop that only has 40 gbs. i have been doing this a few years but now there isn't any more space on the seagate. I first though it was doubling everything up on the external harddrive after every backup, but after running double killer and only removing a few gigs I realized what the problem was. It was adding all new data, so anything that I deleted from the past was still on the external. I want to know how I can just remove everything from the external and start fresh, with what is just currently on my machine. I am afraid if I just start deleting everythign off the external I will delete some critical files or drivers and formatting that would be out of my knowledge to repair. I am using baounceback express as my backup software, the one that came wih the harddrive.
As I can see you have two options; one is delete some unwanted data that is on a hidden part of the hard drive....this is all the data you have been deliting all this years(which means you dont need it)--------if you want to do this plz let me know via email and i will be more than happy to help you(email because its what I check more often)..... and if you defenitly decide to erase everything you must do the following:
1 go to my computer
2 right click your external hard drive
3 click on format.
4 type how you want to name your external hd on Volume label
5 make sure quick format is not checked
6 and then start.... you done
