I have a Verbatim Clon 500GB external hard drive which only holds 4.65 GB; why??


Windows 7Might not be formatted correctly. Check Disc Management under Administrative tools. This will give the true size including space that has not assigned as a partition.

Backed up once successfully but any subsequent tries it says 'no space left' on a 320GB Verbatim external hard-drive. Any ideas?


hi

i would format the external dive and then back up the system hard drive on to it. save any necessary data or files onto CD first-- but if you have a back of the hard disk on this external, no need to keep more than one image copy of the computer hard disk drive. i had to format my external. i do not save anything that is of persoanl value on external drive. if i can i save up to 750M of persoanl data on several CDs

please send me 4 thumbs up

Verbatim 2 GB store n go says it has 918 MB of free space, but says 'disk is full' when I try to add files. I do not believe the store n go is partitioned. What gives?


If you can read the drive, Copy the information from it, into your computer, and format the drive, copy the files back, and it should work... also, if you have a security switch on the drive (write protection) you have to disable it.

How do I copy my complete music files from my computer windows 7 to Verbatim external hard drive with Nero software?


Hi!

Unless I'm misunderstanding, you shouldn't need to use Nero at all to copy your files.
If you use Windows Explorer and locate the directory with your music files, you should be able to just do a copy and paste to a directory on your external harddrive.

I bought this because the Apple store recommended it so that I could store a music collection off of my MacBook. What is the best way to do that so that I can free up space on my hard drive and still have...


The "BEST" way to use any "external" device is to create one MORE copy of all your important files. If your MacBook dies, you have a copy of your files.
Or, if the external device dies, your MacBook still has a copy of your files. Safe!

The "WORST" way would be to copy your files to it *AND* delete the files from your Macbook,
and then to have the external device "die", killing the ONLY copy of your files. Ouch!

I'm Windows XP... I can copy many files to the Verbatim. But when I try to copy a 1GB+ file, the copy craps out. I Googled and found some Microsoft problem when copying 1GB+ files to external drives, but...


The usual limit is exactly 2GB, not 1GB.
It's a limitation of the file-system used for the directory of the disk-drive, when formatted according to the 'FAT32' specifications.

So, copy all the files currently on the Verbatim to your disk-drive.
Then, "reformat" the external (not the "internal") disk-drive, using the 'NTFS' file-system. This file-system has a maximum-file-size limitation for one file that is _much_ larger than the capacity of your Verbatim.

Then, copy all the "saved" files back onto the Verbatim.

Finally, copy your "large" files onto the Verbatim.

I have a Verbatim 250USB drive and have never had a problem with it until I attempted to copy some HD movie files to it from my computer's hard drive. I am attempting to copy .mkv movie files to the...


firs:
try to format your hard drive, then try again.

if you still cannot do it, do a low level format, using this tool:
http://hddguru.com/software/2006.04.12-HDD-Low-Level-Format-Tool/

if you still cannotdo it, it may be a harware problem. try to copy a big .mkv file like that from another pc, to be sure it isn't your pc's fault, if you can do it, then it's your pc, if you still cannot it's the disk.

in the firs case the troublesooting is quite difficoult but if you post your system configuration i may help.

in the second case if allso a low level format fails, then i don' think we can do something for youo... you should get assistance from the manufacturer....
hope this help,
Paolo.

279GB free space in a Seagate 320GB will not take a 5GB pst file



First of all HI :)

The main problem you have is that the file system of your hard drive is FAT32 not NTFS. You need to change it to NTFS in order to work. Here is how.

>> Copy all your data (the 50+GB you used) on to another hard drive
>> Now from My Computer
>> RIGHT CLICK
>> CHOOSE FORMAT
>> CHOOSE NTFS FILING SYSTEM
>> instead of FAT32 and
>> give your hard drive a nice full FORMAT

This will take a while and WARNING you will LOSE all your DATA so DOUBLE CHECK BEFORE YOU START THAT YOU COPIED EVERYTHING.

Hope that this Fixya Helps you :)

Best Regards
(please take some time to rate solution thanks)

Hard drive space needed


Simply buying the external hard drive is one thing. Did you simply plug it in, copy stuff over, or _move_ stuff over? You have to move stuff over in one spot to make room elsewhere. Cut-and-paste is your friend. Do not move programs this way -- just data, like videos, music, photos and word processing documents.

There's a wonderful program called ATF-Cleaner from http://www.atribune.org that can also search your computer for unused files. (Windows has a built-in program, too: click Start: Accessories: System Tools: Disk Cleanup). But the ATF-Cleaner is a bit more thorough, does more stuff. You may be simply wasting a surprising amount of hard drive space on stuff like temporary files that became pretty much permanent. You can also free up some space by deleting old System Restore files and the clike -- look through Disk Cleanup.
