Unless they are password protected you should be able to copy and paste or drag them across if you open up 2 windows1 for where you want to put them on the host and 1 for the caddy.

SOURCE: I have an Acer Aspire with two hard drives, can I move all of my music?

Its not two hardrives, its duo processor, and two cache chips

check the size of data and acer drives (right click and properties, check size)
If they are large should be able to store copy of music

go into the limewire download folder, should be in my computer -> c: -> program files -> Limewire -> shared folder - copy files (edit select all, edit copy or ctrl + left clikc to individually select)
then paste to new directory or folder (right click empty sapce of folder & left click paste

same for Itunes - locate where files are saving to then just copy paste from one location to another

should effect the programs from working, unless You delete files

SOURCE: Files have removed not deleted to a unknown location

There is no reason why this should happen when removing a program or software.

Have you tried a system restore?
It doesn't normally retrieve missing files but as it is files specifically related to a program it may work.

Backup everything you want first, e.g copy my documents etc to an external drive

Start --> All programs --> Accessories --> System Tools --> System Restore

Click Restore my computer to an earlier date

Select a date in bold before the date when you removed the software

Click Next , next

Leave the pc to restore, power plugged in

You can always undo this restore later

If problems, please post results and I will help

Error messages etc.

Thanks

First try reducing your page File - then move the data - and then, potentially, increase the page file back again.

To change the Page File size, right click on My Computer, go to Properties - then the Advanced Tab, then click on Performance Settings, then Advanced Tab and Virtual Memory section - click the Change button - and reduce the size of the pagefile on the drive that you need space.

SOURCE: Use second hard drive

http://www.fbackup.com/

This site apparently provides a free program to back up your files. Please read all the details before you decide to download it. Also, remember to scan any and all downloaded files for viruses and spyware before you attempt any install. Also a good measure to do a system restore point on the computer prior to installation, in case it goes badly.

I have not personally tried this site's software, so I therefore cannot vouch for its quality and ease of use. "Caveat Emptor"--"buyer (installer) beware.

Good luck with your back up and let me know how it goes...please remember to give me a rating if you like the information I have provided.

Thanks,

SOURCE: Use second hard drive

The Windows operaring system is on your 1st drive (ie C drive) and if you change it to a slave drive the computer won't work.
You need to set the jumper on the 2nd hard drive as a slave drive and leave the original drive as the master drive expecially if the 2nd drive is on the same IDE controller and cable as the 1st. hard drive.
It doesn't matter if the 2nd drive is set to master or slave if it is on the 2nd controller.
When you boot up you should see both hard drives and can copy files from one drive to another.

I have the same exact hard drive. At times, it can be detected. Sometimes, it can not.
Try to get another usb cable and wait a little longer for it to be recognized by the computer.
I waited for about 10 minutes before I can get access to my files.

Need to import 3M PiN files from an old HD to a new HD Have v2.0 Office Not computer literate Can you help


If the old hard drive is connected, just copy them over, either cut and paste or just drag and drop them onto your new drive.
If it is no longer attached to your computer, you will need to buy a caddy, or enclosure to fit it itno, then just attach via usb.

Specifically where is the hard drive for the toughbook cf- 27 - i've looked all over


Flip the laptop over and slide the 2 tabs that are near the carry handle to the unlocked position. This will allow the metal cover on the underside of the laptop to hinge up and be removed.

With the laptop upside down and the carry handle facing you, you should see the battery on the left of the laptop. On the right, there is a silver case about 4 inches long and 2.5 inches wide. This is the hard drive caddy.

To remove /this/ part, carefully push the connecting cable towards the battery until it smoothly disconnects from the hard drive caddy. Remove the caddy from the laptop. Using a small phillips screwdriver, remove the 3 small screws which hold the top of the caddy on. Remove the top, and you will see the hard drive.

As a note - be sure you do not remove the gel lining. This is 99.9% of the hard drive's shock protection. When you remove the hard drive, the cable should come out of the caddy as well. Put the new cable on a new hard drive (HDD must be smaller than 65,536MB), put the new hard drive into the caddy with cable attached, make sure the cable assembly is fitted into the caddy slot, replace the caddy cover, replace the screws, replace the caddy into the laptop. Then, make sure you connect the cable from the laptop PC board to the caddy cable assembly. Replace cover, turn on computer, and set up your Operating System (if needed).

When you insert the usb cable from the caddy into a USB port on your notebook, Vista will automatically recognize it and open a dialog box. Choose to view files and folders.

Open another Window using Explorer and resize it so you can see the contents of your C: drive.

Then simply drag your files and folders from the caddy to the C: drive where you want them.

Remember that transferring program files will NOT help you as many of the files needed to run a program are located in other folders such as yours Windows directory. You will need to reinstall any software you wish to use.

This method is strictly for data transfer, as an example all your pictures, documents, spreadsheets, etc.

EXTERNAL HARD DRIVE BY SIMPLE TECH 500 GG


First, check the warranty status. They should give you a replacement. The following will probably void your warranty... This external drive probably houses a standard hard drive used in a desktop computer. If you don't mind voiding your warranty, you could disassemble the protective "shell" and check to see that the cabling to the drive is properly attached. I've seen a external drive which the interface cable was partially unattached. If all looks OK here, you could remove the actual hard drive and try hooking it up to a standard desktop computer. If you or a friend is reasonably tech savvy, such is a plus. It could be set as a secondary drive, and then you could see if files could be accessed. If nothing above works, then your outlook is bleak. There are businesses specializing in file recovery from a dead drive, but it is expensive.
