Looks as if the disk is full and after logging on it requests me to format the disk and won't let me access in order to delete unwanted files.


Hi,
Could you please give more details
- Is it an external drive? / USB etc?
- what operating system is your computer?

Have you tried running the disk clean up wizard?
(On windows goto computer then right click the drive then goto properties then tools then click the button disk cleanup)

It always shows the disk is write protected


click start control panel administrive tools computer management disk management right click on your drive select properties then security select take full control in windows 7


USB drives can be write-protected by modifying the StoreageDevicePolicies Registry key and WriteProtect Registry value.
click Start>run>regedit to open Registry Editor. and press control+F to open the find dialogue box and type "usb device" or "driverdesc" to open usb mass storage device or type "usb mass storage device" in the search windows. And right click on it and delete. This will set the policy value to 0. then insert your usb device. It will work fine.
# Remember: do not delete any unknow files in the registry as this will make some programes not work as usual.

If you are running a Windows XP OS then you might be able to:

- Click Properties in the menu that comes up
- Click the Sharing tab
- Click permissions
- And finally, click Allow next to Full Control.

I have a problem with my toshiba external hard drive. the problem is that when i want to delete something from hard drive or want to move to my pc it give the error 0x80070570. can you please tell me any...


More often than not this is caused by a bad sector on the hard disk, and can be fixed following these steps:

First backup the data on that hard disk to another one.
Second, click Start then click Computer.
Third, right click on the external hard drive and select Properties.
Fourth, click on the Tools tab at the top of the window that pops up and run the Error Checking software (button usually says "check now" or something similar) and follow the instructions.

This will hopefully fix any issues you have with that drive and once completed should allow you to delete and move stuff again.

Thanks, if this solution helps please rate :)

(WARNING: After running this low level format tool,
the whole USB flash disk surface will be fully erased.
Therefore, data restoration will be impossible after using this utility!)

I can't delete files from my 160 GB Simpletech hard drive and it is full, what should I do?


Do a "disk cleanup"
Click on [My Computer]
Right-click on the External drive (D?)
Select [Properties]
In the [General] tab, click on [Disk Cleanup]
It will "scan" your drive, but not remove anything... alow it to complete the scan.
Look at the recommended list that appears and accept its findings.
This should remove non-essential files and leave your data intact.

Burn some of your data, especially video content to DVD (make at least two copies) ... then remove the data from your external hard drive.
You may want to purchase another (larger) external drive. You can use two of them or move your data to the new one.

I keep tryin to safe or delete files but it keeps saying it's write-protected


Dear,

1. Make sure you have full rights to do so.
2. Check the properties of drive or folder if it is write protected then change the properties.
