My octigen 3.5" slim drive is rated 75 gigabytes but only 4 are available for backup

My computer says the problem is caused by how the drive is configured. So how do I configure it to get the full 75 gigabyes for backup?

Depending on your operating system. Start -> control panel->administrative tools->disk management. When the drive shows itself right click on the partition, select delete partition. Then right click on the drive and select simple partition. The OS will then format the drive.

SOURCE: EISA configuration

As mentioned by others above this partition is a special boot partition which is supposed to make it so you can take a few relatively simple steps to restore the system to it's original configuration. (FWIW, this restoration process is normally relatively idiot proof and even easier than using ghost as long as the restore data hasn't been deleted) Depending upon the system configuration deleting this partition could also make the system entirely unbootable so I would advise not to mess with it if the drive is the original boot drive.

That said..... The partition can be deleted from within Windows 2000/XP/Vista by running a command prompt and then Diskpart. (fdisk in Win 95/98) Using Diskpart type Help for a list of commands and be absolutely sure you know what your doing so you don't delete the wrong partition.

Which is smaller, gigabytes or megabytes


megabits is smaller
if you want to back up 2.83 gb get a usb flash drive
get a 5gb unit
usb sticks (flash drive) rated at 5 gb will hold 4.5 gb of data as the rating is the total capacity but all flash drives require a small amount of space to work so the actual amount of data capacity is always less than the stated size on the flash drive
the capacity rating is-- smallest to largest --bytes, mega bytes , gigabytes, and terabytes

My drive is full so it won't back up anymore!


Check the backup settings in the software that came with the device. You may be saving every backup instead of saving incrementally. An incremental backup will back up the files that have changed after doing one full backup.
You can also view the files on the drive through Windows Explorer.
The files should be dated. Delete the oldest files making sure that they seem to be the same size as the next oldest file.
If your computer is not faulty, and the files on the backup are not the only place that they are copied, you can start over with the backup drive, change the backup settings and create an incremental backup routine.
Depending on the size in Gigabytes of the backup drive, you are limited to the amount of data you can back up.
Example:
If you have a 500Gigabyte drive in your computer and the external backup drive is 250 Gigabytes,a full system backup will not fit.
Go to Windows Explorer, Click on My Computer and view the available space and total size for each drive.

If you need more help, Use Fixya's new Phone Call Service. For $29.99 an expert will walk you through the setup and drive check.

it makes no difference how old the drive is, unless you transfer the same amount of content everyday and can chart and predict. It  might help to wrap your mind around the actually capacity and extent of files you trasfer and use. If that drive is a 200GB....1 gigabyte is roughly 1 cd and a half. A compact disc can hold 700MB, or gauge it to like a ipod.  So if youre possibly transferring say 2GB per day, you will reach the max of the drive in 3 months?

2GB X 90 days=180GB

If you are using graphic applications, or video...you may want to look towards a 320 GB or 500GB as things only get larger with current computers........Just 3 years ago, who knew what a gigabyte was? Now we own drive in upwards to 1TB ( terabyte ).


keep me posted..
