Open up time machine and allow it to make your drive a backup. If the drive is large and you don't want to make the whole drive a backup. Whatever is a backup cannot be used for anything else until formatted. It will direct you from there.

How do I delete all the info backed up on my irocks external hard drive?


Usually hard drive disks are erasable so long as was an an empty space. However, the type of setting chosen during data encription causes the situation of erasability. For example, using an external harddrive disk as back up media storage media has specific requirements. The computer provides an integral means of least being compromised where data permanent encription may have been the options available during backup copying. The compoter provides the procedures of recording data into any connected external devices. Once the external device is reconnected to the computer, the options of requesting the user to either erase what has already been copied becomes one of the several displayable promps. Also, backup disks usually on connection to the computer assumes a necessity to restore to functioning mode. However, a least malfunctioning computer would simply display prompts asking the computer user to perform the most recent backup, or disregard because of least disfunction recognised from the system. Attempting is erase what has already been recorded becomes appropiate whenever the computer recognises any curroption of the files. A prompt is display asking to fix errors soon after connection. The computer user simple chooses to restore to default functionality the external hardrive. Amongs the options usually provided of the program prompt are format, delete, restore, or backup computer files once connection is recognised. keep in mind that, an external hard disk may be default rrecordable proving no options of erasing. Refer to the hard disk drive user guide as reference to achieve the process. Also, the user guide would have specified if the device is capable of alternations or not.

My pc doesnt recognitze my portable verbatim hard drive anymore, model 47512, and their support page sucks. what can i do?


First, try to connect it to a different computer, to see if it can be read on _any_ computer at all.

Second, check the warranty-status of the unit; if the warranty still is valid, Verbatim will replace the hardware (but will NOT make any attempts to 'recover' your files).

Third, an external drive has two major components -- the disk-drive and the USB-to-disk-drive adapter. Open the enclosure, and remove the disk-drive, and connect it as a 'slave' disk-drive in a desktop computer, to see if that interface hardware is the problem.

Running Windows 7 Home premium. External drive Verbatim USB 250 Silver is recognized, but, needs to be reformatted. I've tried to format (NTSF) using tool in Disk Management. Format runs forever and...


Hello and thank you for using Fixya's services.

This problem happens quite a bit with Windows Vista. It seems that Windows Vista puts a hidden file in the backup; which locks the device.

Open the external device (Windows 7 is fine). Click on "view hidden folders and files." Delete any hidden files you may have in the external.

Go back to "my computer" and right click on the external hard drive letter. Choose properties and security tab. Make your user-name as a main user (administrator) and disable the read only.

Reboot the computer and see if this works.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Corrupt file system


In Windows Explorer, right-click on the drive and select Properties from the context menu. Select the Tools tab. Click on the Check Now button in the Error-checking box. It will probably respond with a UAC prompt, so enter a username that has administrator access and its password or select the Continue button as required. If the chkdsk utility cannot establish exclusive control over the drive you may need to schedule the check to run after the next reboot, then reboot the machine. It will run a comprehensive check of all of the structures on the drive and fix any errors it encounters. Once it is done, you should be able to backup the drive.
