You may have set the E (manufacturere diag drive) drive for system cache Check <start> <control panel> <system> <advanced> performance <settings> <advanced> virtual memory
<change> here you will see which drive has the system cache
It should (in your case) be C if not change it and system managed is OK this should solve the problem If not you can hide the E drive
<start> <run>type diskmgmt.msc Highlight the drive letter "e" with right mouse click select <change drive letter paths> remove the drive letter

Windows will not format itself if your hard drive has an operating system on it.
Click start click on computer to open right click on your drive C: select properties you will see all used and free space on your drive.
You have to be the computers administrator to change any values on any hard drive on your computer.
Click start control panel user accounts on the users tab click the name of the computer administrator you must have full control
Click start click to open on my computer you should see your usb drive could be E: or something right click select properties there will be an array of options
select the sharing tab option then advanced sharing make sure you have a tick in the share this folder box
then click permissions make sure you have all 3 boxes ticked full control changes and read in windows 7
Click start control panel user accounts click on the administrators account if you have made one or you will have to create one in windows XP
Click start right click on my computer select open
Right click the icon of your usb drive (It should be E:/ or something)
Click Properties in the menu that comes up
Click the Sharing tab
Click permissions
And finally, click Allow next to Full Control.

If its your primary hard drive with an operating system
you have to format a hard drive with a third party disk
Restart your computer During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS then using the arrow keys
navigate to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd press escape then press f10 to save to cmos restart
If its an external hard or a data drive or a usb data drive
click start right click on my computer select open you should see your usb drive
right click then select format
another way is to click start control panel administrative tools computer management disk management right click on your drive select format.

In a Sony vaio the Fujitsu hdd reports an error and is unable to boot. When I hook the hdd up to a different system the files are accessible and usable. (ex. You can play music that's on it). How can I...


When you connect the Fujitsu to the Sony laptop. use disk management utility to see how the how the sony is characterizing the Fujitsu. If you can access the files on the Fujitsu from another computer, the Fujitsu is not faulty. Your connection with the Sony is the problem. Disk management utility instructions are listed below:

Right click on you "My Computer" Icon

A menu will open

Chose "Manage"

The Computer Management window will open


The Computer Management window is broken down into 3 sections.


The first section on the left side of the window shows a menu. Disk Management is on the lower portion of the menu.


The right side is separated into two sections, top and bottom. The top portion shows a list of active drives on the computer. The lower portion shows all drives connected to the computer. CD or DVD drives that have not disk will not show as active drives on the top section, but can be seen in the lower section.


The lower section will show the drive description, drive size and drive condition (online or off line) in small box on the left side of that section. Disk drives will designate a "Drive" and a number. Drive 0 is usually your internal hard drive. Then it would list drive 1, drive 2, etc, depending on how many internal and external drive sources you have connected to your computer. Then it will list your CD drives and generally show their drive letter assignments.


Next to the smaller section described above, is a larger section which shows the driver letter, size of the driver and condition (if working correctly will show "healthy")

This is the area you can right click and get a menu that will allow you to open, explore, mark the partition as active, change the driver letter, format the drive or delete a partition. (A note of caution here. Changing the driver letter on your main hard drive partition will cause windows to stop functioning. The main hard drive, or hard drive partition, is normally given the letter "C".) A hard drive may show two or more partitions with separate drive letters designated for each partition.


A drive that is having a problem may show that it needs to be formatted (status as Unformatted). This can be done from this window. An external drive, whether it is a hard drive or CD/DVD drive, can have the letter designator change done if you want to organize your external drives. There are times when a drive will not show up because the drive letter that they are programmed to use are taken. Most USB drives are programmed to us the letters "F" or "G". In this area, you can assign the USB drive any drive letter that is not being used and this will make it visible in windows.
I hope that this information is helpful, if so, please rememeber to leave positive feedback.

Thank You,

Where is sandisk repair centre in banglore? my 8 gb pen drive is not able to access by the computer and it is not getting formated


You can work at formatting you cruzer using windows disk management utility. The instructions are listed below. This may help you avoid going to the repair center. If your computer does not see the flash drive and you see no activity, the cruzer may failed. These 2 gb flash drives are really cheaper to replace than to repair in todays market.

Hello, I have a LaCie 250GB Hard Drive and it´s not being recognized by my PC. I have Windows XP SP3. What should I do?


All brand-new hard drives are sold unformatted and thus don't show up in Windows until they've gone through the formatting process. To get up and running, connect the drive, boot your PC, and at the Windows desktop right-click the My Computer icon and select Manage. Click Disk Management in the left-hand tree, and every drive connected to your system will show up. Simply right-click your new drive and select New Partition. Then follow the steps to get your drive up and running.

Maxstor shared Storage II 500GB


Try mapping that drive as a network share under windows XP. This is done from "MY Computer" Map network drive. The set up your backups to back up the network drive you have created. If that does not do it then there is a contention between vista and xp as to the owner of the drive. Making the drive a mapped network drive should resolve this as neither should have ownership. Thats my best quess without knowing in detail your network setup.
