Question about Click Free Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Can I use the Clickfree HD10373 as an external hard drive? I do not want to use it for automatic backup.

I originally bought it from Dell for automatic backup but it did not work so that I have never used it. I now would like to use it as an external hard drive to which I can save specific files. Is this possible-to cancal the automatic backup and convert it to a simple external hard drive?

Uninstall the automatic backup software and format the drive you purchased from them and you should be good to go.

You need to use the Storage Sync program provided with the drive. You can get the latest version at the Simple Tech website

SOURCE: Lacie 320 GB Hard Drive acting as if full when it's not.

Simplest solution: back up the data on the drive and repartition it (which will wipe it). Otherwise it sounds like it could be a problem with the file tree or structure of the drive, the configuration files could be corrupt, some program could have stored temporary files in a hidden place that cannot be deleted without making the program delete them, etc. If you are on a mac, spotlight Disk Utility and use it to repartition. If you are on a PC use the search thing from the start menu and find a program called disk management (or something similar to that, you'll know it when you see it.) external drives are annoying. i kick mine into the wall periodically for good measure.

SOURCE: I can't delete files from my Maxtor 3200 external hard drive

The other comments are not the easiest way to free up space on the drive. The reason you aren't seeing a change in free space is because of a drive error (probably unplugged without unmounting). So First open up disk utilities and fix the hard drive (should only take 1-2 min). After the drive is fixed select erase free space (zero out data is fine for now). This usually takes about 20 min for me with a 120 gig hard drive. This allows you to have the free space without having to move all of those files around (which for me would be a problem because I have 100 gigs used on my drive, which would take forever).

May I know the Model # of the External Hard Drive?

You can directly copy the data that you want to backup and paste it in the external Hard Drive. You can also right click on the folder/data and select sent to option--->and then select the external hard drive (a drive letter will be assigned to the external hard drive also).

SOURCE: My HP Simple Save external hard drive worked fine,

Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43).

Try reinstalling the driver software for your external drive.

Did you plug in a usb flash card? something that may have reassigned drive letters?

Why isn't my clickfree C6 backing up my files on the second time I needed to backup my files it just keep saying that it is backing up but all colums saying 0


It would appear that your Clickfree C6 is stuck on searching when attempting to backup. If you find that the backup is stuck at this phase, where 0 files are backed up and the status reads "searching for files": you should be able to resolve this issue by applying an update from Clickfree's website.


Pre-requisites:
-Administrator rights
-A computer using Windows XP SP3, Windows Vista, or Windows 7 (32-bit, or 64-bit is okay)
-The C6 must be detected correctly by the computer (where both CF_Storage and Clickfree_System appear in Computer/My Computer)


Try the following to resolve the Stuck on Searching issue:
1. Ensure that your Clickfree device is plugged into USB
2. Close any open applications that may be running
3. Using a web browser, navigate to the following address: http://www.storage-corp.com/customerservice/C6_Updater_search_issue.exe
• The website will prompt for a username, use: cssupport
• The website will prompt for a password, use: cssupport
4. When prompted, save the file to your desktop
5. Double click on the file named "C6_Updater_search_issue.exe"
6. The update will take place automatically. Do not close the update application until completion.
7. When the update is complete, click on the OK button
8. Disconnect your Clickfree from USB
9. Plug the Clickfree back into USB


Attempt another backup to see if the issue persists.

Trying to run chkdsk on clickfree c2 500gb gives error not enough space on destination drive i am using a dell dimension 3000 desktop pc with windows xp home sp3


how are you trying to run the chkdsk utility
click start control panel administrative tools computer management disk management right click on your drive select properties click tools you should see click check now click start two boxes

automatically fix files and scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors place then a tick in both boxes then select check now start

you might tick one box then return after its finished the first repair then return and tick the second box you should not do anything while the chkdsk utility is in progress any input may damage this drive

I found that you get best results by ticking one box then returning after it has finished then tick the other box

hope this helps you
