In the case that you get a virus that makes your computer not function properly you would use a duplicate or back up of your hard drive to return to the most recent (or previously created backup) of your hard drive so it works. You can use a duplicating software to copy your hard drive to a new hard drive should you want to upgrade your system. If you want to sell your computer without giving away your personal information that is stored on the hard drive you can use a duplication software to load a backup of your hard drive from before you put any personal information on to it.

How to free up space so that In can update software on MacBook Air


Start with photos and music files: if there are duplicates - make SURE they are exact duplicates (name/file size/R click-quicklook). You can get an external hard drive cheaply (http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_c_0_19?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=external+hard+drive&sprefix=external+hard+drive%2Caps%2C166) and move important info.

My produplicator will not display the lcd screen


One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions IDE,SATA

the leads from your "((motherboard to your hard drive))" make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electric extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error If your computer came with a motherboard disc the drivers could be on it or you might have a dirty graphics card remove the graphics card and clean the socket

hope this helps

Hi, I'm having trouble with my Kanguru Solutions Duplicator. It says "Hard Drive Corrupted - error #233 (89)" I can still burn cds, but am wondering if there really is a problem. Thanks!


teacher357,

Given the error code you provided it looks like you have corrupt hard drive. You can try reformatting the hard drive or just replacing it.

There is a good chance that your data is corrupted on that drive in which case you will probably want to recover it. TestDisk is a powerful and free open source software tool kit that can help you recover lost, deleted, corrupt data off your bad hard drive. You can also try to slave your corrupt hard drive to another computer and try to access it that way.

I would try to recover the data and replace the bad hard drive with a new one. I would try www.newegg.com or www.tirgerdirect.com for some good deals on hard drives.

I really hope this helps and good luck!

Respectfully,

How do I completely reset my external hard drive


1. You need to check how much free disk space is available on your laptop.
2. You need to check what duplicated files you have on both the laptop and the external hard drive and which is the latest version.
3. You need to decide to move the latest versions of the data files from the external hard drive to the laptop. This automatically delete these from the external hard drive. The older versions on the external hard drive can be deleted.
4. Now you need to check how much data is stored on your external hard drive.
5. If the amount of data stored on the external hard drive exceeds the available disk space on the laptop, then you cannot copy these files to the laptop.
6. If you have sufficient disk space on the laptop you can copy the data from the external hard drive to the laptop. I suggest you make a folder to copy this data to it.
You can now delete all the data from the external hard drive or you can format the external hard drive to make a clean external hard drive.

I don't know how to access my Western Digital Backup. I have no icon to click.


hi

If you have a WD Media Center, Dual-option Combo, or Dual-option USB external hard drive, you can use the Retrospect Express software that comes with the drive to create a backup schedule that will backup your data onto the drive.

To setup an automatic duplicate schedule in Retrospect Express 6.5 on a PC, please follow the instructions below.
  1. Start Retrospect Express by pressing the Automatic Backup button on the front of your Media Center external hard drive after you have installed the Retrospect software and powered on and connected the drive.

  2. You will be presented with the Western Digital Automatic Backup Wizard. Click Next to continue.

  3. Highlight the drive(s) that contains the data you wish to backup and click Next. To select multiple drives or folders, hold down the Ctrl key and make your selections.

  4. You will have a choice to backup your documents only or all files, make your selection and click Next.

  5. Highlight the drive you wish to copy your data to and click Next.

  6. You will have the option to run the data duplication daily or once a week. Make your selection and click Next.

    • If you choose a daily duplication, you will have to select the time that you'd like the duplication to start each day, then click Next.

    • If you choose a weekly duplication, you will have to select the day and time that you'd like the duplication to start, then click Next.

    • If you wish to run the duplication one time when you are finished setting up the schedule, check the Start the backup now box and click Finish. Otherwise, just click Finish.

    • You will see the Automatic backup button glow a solid blue. When the blue light is on it indicates that the automatic duplication schedule is enabled and your duplication is set to run at the scheduled time.
For the duplication to run successfully, you must have both the computer and drive powered on and connected correctly at the scheduled time.
