Re: Crash and noise

If it sounds kinda like "clunk...whir, clunk whir" or maybe "clunka clunka clunka" your hard drive is toast. There are some utilities that say they can realign the platen and heads but my experience is that if they do fix it...its just long enough for you to lose more data in two weeks. usually your data is lost...there are clean rooms like Cherry Systems that can clean room recover your data...but get your checkbook out.. Good luck

None of my windows work. When I try to roll them down i hear click click click and a grinding noise

Are your windows made of wood or aluminium ? If they are wood it's possible they have been painted shut. You will have to unstick them with a knife, & hammer. Tap lightly all around the window. There might be a solution you can make and spray around the Windows. Check YouTube

Ho do i fix if my acer aspire 4333 usb is doesn't open in my computer

When booting up press f2 to go into bios. In there make sure usb support is activated thenstart the machine. It should now be working. If it is not hover the mouse over the computer icon , or go into the system settings, enter device manager, check the status of usb there. If it has "!" in a yellow circle that means there are issues regarding it functioning.Right click on the device and check that it is not disbled. that should sort it out. If your laptop has USB3 you might need to install drivers

Insert backup tape, can hear it, then ejects, it doesn't matter which tape (two week cycle) - none will stay in drive. HP Ultrium 215 LTO 1

Sounds like a lost leader. When the tape is loaded there is a leader in the tape drive that hooks onto the end of the tape and pulls it out and onto the take up reel. If the leader gets out of position then the drive fails to load the tape and it is ejected. To fix it requires taking the drive apart. This might be a good time to upgrade to a newer model LTO. They were redesigned to eliminate this problem.

I recently got a Mac for the first time. I used a USM-L microvault flash drive to transfer my files from my old PC to my Mac. Most of my files got compressed, except for jpg images. I cannot figure out how...

.exe are Windows executable files and will not run in Mac OS X. You can use Boot Camp to install a Windows bootable partition if you need those programs and there are no Mac versions of them. As far as the compressed files goes, the Mac should automatically decompress them when they are accessed. Expander is loaded into Mac OS X. If they do not automatically decompress or give a dialogue box, you can use the finder (click on the apple and click on find) or look in the applications folder for the utilities folder and in there should be stuffit expander.

How to configure or enable hardware compression in DW065B LTO1 Drive. When trying to take backup in H/w compression mode the tape (100/200 GB Tape) is ejected.

The L&TT support ticket contains drive configuration information such as whether hardware data compression is enabled or not.
Use L&TT to pull the ticket then look in the Drive->Drive Configuration section for details.
Here's an example:
|__ Drive
||__ Data compression : Enabled
||__ Current block size : Not available
||__ Detect WORM tampering : WORM not supported
||__ Reads after WORM tampering : WORM not supported
||__ Media removal (software controlled) : Allowed
If data compression is not enabled then it is likely that it has been turned off by the backup application. Check the options in your application to ensure that software compression (done by the server) is turned off and hardware compression (done by the drive) is turned on.
Data compression can be turned on in the drive by
  • The application ( the application will usually override the drive configuration so configuring the application correctly is of prime importance)
  • Resetting the drive
  • Power cycling the drive
  • Using the L&TT Set Drive Configuration utility (use the options to enable compression -see the L&TT user guide below)
NetBackup usersCaution NetBackup will turn off hardware compression in the drive at the end of each backup, so when you look at it with Library and Tape Tools it will be off. This is actually normal for NetBackup, so please check the configuration of NetBackup to make sure that compression is configured correctly. In this case see 'Measure Compression Ratio' (go back one level) as that will show whether compression has been in operation in the drive.
