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. If you are unsure of your knowledge - ask friends!

Why would I need to duplicate my hard drive?


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.

Do I need a special software to duplicate a hard drive?


not necessarily, you could just systematically copy each folder from one place to another. This can get time consuming if there are a lot of folders that you want to copy so there are softwares out there that are designed to clone your hard drive.

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,

Adam04

I am replacing a Hitachi Travelstar 5K100 HTS541080G9SA00 80GB with a Western Digital 500GB SATA 3Gb/s Hard Drive 8MB 5400RPM 2.5IN Scorpio Blue. A tech told me to use a cloning software to switch the...


You would need to use a "usb" to hard drive cable. It looks like this: http://gizmodo.com/168149/brando-sataeide-to-usb-20-cable

Then, it is simply a matter of "cloning." The other alternative is to find a pc repair shop with a hard drive duplicator. It will copy much faster.

Please rate if you find this helpful.

I downloaded RE5 extra content on my hard drive and another persons console and when i tried to transfer my hard drive back to my console the extra content wont play. How can i get this to work?


The reason behind this was due to the console's unique encription which is being transmitted back to Microsoft whenever hooked up thru Xbox Live using a particular gamertag/profile was activated to avoid software duplication and/or any sort of software piracy. What you can do is to recover your gamertag into your own Xbox 360 and load the game RE5 and it DLC should work after that.

Cannot copy dvds or cds with my duplicator


Hey! Usually, DVDs have some protections which prevent DVD users copying DVDs freely. Theser protections include CSS protection, region code protection etc. Therefore, you need to remove DVD protections first if you want to copy DVDs. There are some DVD Copy software which can do this. I have a good luck with this DVD Copy which works fine. You can have a try if you like.
Hope that helps.

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.
