Question about Computers & Internet
I have a Mac Power PC G4 running OSX 10.4.11. I also have a LaCie firewire external HD design by F.A.Porsche 250GB which I have had for some time now. My LaCie drive keeps freezing up when I try to backup something to it. I run Quickbooks for my business and used to make regular backups to the LaCie HD. I installed Carbon Copy Cloner to make a backup of my Mac HD to my LaCie HD but it froze up during the process. I have tried using disk utility erase tab (zero out data) and the partition tab to reformat the LaCie HD. After doing so same problem. It use to work fine. I noticed the problem when I bought my daughter a new laptop and transferred all her stuff from my Mac to the LaCie HD then to her computer. What I did wrong though was once downloaded to the LaCie HD I just unplugged the firewire from my computer and plugged it into her new laptop without unmounting the LaCie HD. This seems to be when all the problems started. Any HELP? Thanks, Jeff Paquette
I suggest an application called "Disk Warrior" it has always maintained high ratings among us Mac enthusiasts it has a hardware test function built into it and seems to be a little better at verify and repair functions than Disk Utilities which you can try also if you haven't yet. You may also consider trying a different firewire cable if you have one handy. Other than that a reformat should have put the disk back into an original state however the disk could have been damaged by not un-mounting it in rare mac cases. If you have the time you can also reformat the disk again although I would try the first two options first.
