    Thank you for your reply and kind comments.



    I have had a look at Kernel website. The files are i believe encrypted and are stored as



    Personal Media suite.config I therefore do not know what format these files are..email,word,pictures and as such would not know which solution to go for.



    I would think the encryption would need to be sorted first ?

    You are right helen, we gotta remove the encription entirely.



    If you look at the vedio again... it talks about the recovery part.

To solve this issue, please install the latest scanner driver. If you use MFL-Pro Suite Software,
  1. Click Start => Control Panel => Programs => Programs and Features.
  2. Select Brother MFL-Pro Suite from the list, click Uninstall and follow the on screen instructions.
  3. Once the uninstallation is completed, disconnect the interface cable and restart the PC.
If you do not use MFL-Pro Suite Software,
Make a temporary folder on your HDD to save the downloaded self-extracting file, e.g. C:\bront

Please click here to download the uninstall tool to remove the drivers.
Once downloading is completed, double click the downloaded file to extract it.

"ZIP Self Decompression" appears. Click DECOMPRESS.

"The decompression process was successful." will appear. Click OK.

A folder will be created in the temporary folder created in Step 1.

Open the folder and double click DelInf32.exe. "Brother MFC Uninstaller" dialog box will appear.

Select your model and click OK.
"Complete" will appear. Click OK.

Once the uninstallation is completed, disconnect the interface cable and restart the PC.

Hello, I'm trying to track down a USB driver for a Freecom FHD-1 external drive to run under Windows 98se (for the moment). Have checked freecom.com for drivers but am a bit dizzy after...


http://support.microsoft.com/kb/263218

Some info on 98se and USB issues. You should not need a usb driver if the usb port in your computer is already functioning properly. The only inconvenience you will have is your drive will work at the slower speed provided by the usb 1.1 standard.


The link below describes step by step installation of your drive in 98se

Mac cant read files on an old external drive


Evidently, MAC and Windows are not compatible. All you need to do is to download and install a software for your MAC to handle file/s from Windows. Thank you.

INdex.dat causing bail-out of HDD Back-up


Index.dat is not required, simply do not include it in your backup..windows will recreate the file automatically. It is created by the file indexing service for faster searches, etc.

Secured and compressed jpgs will not open


Hello patsyzara

(01) 1st, for now (as a precaution against data loss), please, don't add or delete anything to or from that external HDD (hard disk drive)

(02) Just to make sure, the photos and not just a catalog of the photos were originally stored onto the external HDD, yes?

(03) Do you still have access to the computer where you originally had the external HDD connected at the time you encrypted the files (photos)?

Even if the protected files were on the same external HDD that you are using now, the protection software is possibly associated w/ the computer on which the files were fist stored.

(04) Please, tell us exactly what mechanism (the name of the software, etc) you used to originally encrypt these files.

(05) Did you recall if you used software that came w/ the external HDD to encrypt your files?

(06) Please, tell us the the following:

(A) The operating system that was installed on the previous computer you're referring to. (Windows 2000, Windows XP, etc.)

(B) The model number of your Freecom external HDD. (look for a sticker or any markings on the case).

(C) The name of the encryption software if you can remember.

(06) If you still have access to the original computer, connect the external hard disk to that computer and tell us if you can see the files again.

(07) If you can, decrypt the files and then transfer the external HDD to the new computer.

If you need assistance w/ ANY of these steps or have any questions at all, comments, observations, etc., please, post back here w/ them. We will continue to work w/ you on this issue until it is resolved or we reach an impasse.


Thank you

hi there,
sounds like you have a hardware problem...you should look into trying this drive on another system to see if the same thing is happening without the drive software ...and if it works try to recover all your data from this drive as soon as possible...hardware problems are most time intermittent ... so they work now then say after a while they stop...

Free space availabilities


Is it formatted as FAT32? If so, it doesn't support files larger than 4GB.

Backup the files you have on it, then reformat as NTFS.
