SOURCE: error copying file or folder

One of the most important yet overlooked elements of PC maintenance is data backup. If you do not perform regular backups, chances are your productivity will eventually suffer from data losses or a failed Windows installation.

All versions of Windows after 3.1 ship with a free backup utility called Microsoft Backup. It is not the best backup program available, but it may be sufficient for your needs. (Backup is better in later versions of Windows. Microsoft recommends Win98/Me users purchase a third-party utility.) If you want more control over your backups, consider purchasing a third-party program.

Backup is part of the System Tools utility. However, Setup does not install it by default in Win98/Me/XP Home. If you cannot locate Backup, visit the Microsoft support site and query for article No. 152561 (Win98), No. 264541 (WinMe), or No. 302894 (WinXP Home).

In Win98/Me, click Start, select Programs, Accessories, System Tools, and click Backup. To create and run a backup, click the Create A New Backup Job radio button and click OK. Follow the prompts to create a full or partial backup. If you want to create a backup set and run it later or run an existing backup set, open Backup and click the Open An Existing Backup Job radio button and click OK. You can now access the main Backup dialog box.

In Win2000/XP, navigate to the System Tools utility and select Backup. Click the Backup Wizard button. If you do not see a Backup Wizard button, click the Welcome tab. In WinXP, the wizard will start automatically if you are in wizard mode. Follow the prompts to create your backup set.

When you reach the last dialog box, Completing The Backup Wizard, you can click the Advanced button to create a backup schedule (this option is not available in Win98/Me). When you reach the When To Back Up dialog box, select the Later radio button and click the Set Schedule button. Perform data backups on a schedule that is appropriate to the importance of your files (once a week is a common timeframe). You should also perform a system backup at least once a month.

If you do not want to use the wizard, or you are working with an existing backup, open Backup and click the Backup tab to access the main Backup dialog box.

SOURCE: WD5000- I can't save files anymore to the disk

A few things to check

1. ensure the drive is connected directly to the computer and not via a HUB

2. ensure you use the original cable that came with it (not one that looks the same)

3. remove as many other usb components as possible

4.check the power supply for the external drive if it has one

5. shut down and restart the computer

At this point you should be able to see and move files around.

If this is not the case and the drive is no longer under warranty you could try the following

remove the drive from its enclosure and mount it in a computer that has a suitable interface SATA or IDE. if you can now use the drive normally then the enclosure is at fault. If the drive cannot be used normally then the drive is at fault. If its the drive then it is either dying or dead.

Also you should ensure your antivirus is totally up to date and that you also have ANTISPYWARE software installed too and that your computer is clean from any nasty stuff.

SOURCE: Hitachi SimpleDrive 320GB: Error moving file: Access denied!

The problem may be that your Security settings for the drive are not configured to give you Full Control.

In Explorer, right-click on the Hitachi drive and choose Properties.
Go to the Security tab.

Find the User you are trying to use and click on it.
Under Permissions, click Edit and enable Full Control for that user.

That should give you the ability to do what you need to.

If Windows won't allow you to change the setting, it's because you don't have Administrator priviledges. In that case, log out and log back in as an Administrator and go back and make the changes.

Cannot get microfix usb digital microscope to work

That's probably a Windows privileges problem; only the administrator can write to the Program Files folder. Log in to the computer as administrator, open the MicroCapture program, find the settings for the file locations, and set up a folder in your (User Name) Documents for the MicroCapture files. Alternatively, modify the permissions for the MicroCapture folder (not recommended; do this only if MicroCapture won't let you use a different location).

How to recover my sd card back to 2gb

If the drive is not detecting at all then the controller chip inside has failed. The best way you can recover this is to find another identical unit and remove the memory chip (it will be the larger of the two) from both drives and solder the one from the faulty drive into the donor, you will need soldering experience and a hot air gun to remove the chips (do not head these up too much, only enough to melt the solder) You will ideally have a electronics microscope to see the small pins that will be soldered. If this sounds like too much work, you could send it off to a data recover company such as ours at Digital Recovery

Hard disk not detected sometimes

I can think of 3 possible causes to your problem:

1. Faulty cable - try replacing the cable by borrowing a working cable from a friend. If this solves the problem then you need to buy a new cable

2. Lack of power - some USB drives especially those for high capacity drives require extra power aside from that provided by USB. If you do not have a separate power leading to your drive, check if there is a separate power slot and run a cable from it to your outlet/USB slot. Just make sure that the voltage levels are correct.

3. USB Slot - some laptops' USB slots do not produce power enough to drive a hard disk. Other devices may work (e.g. keyboards, mouse) but not hard drives. Try to use another slot in your laptop. If this works, remember to use the same slot next time.

Hope this helps.

When I connect WD 250 GB external harddisk ..I am getting error message" USB device Not recognized due to malfuction"..please guide me my laptop is toshiba and operating system is windows xp

Please trouble shoot by trying the device on another laptop.

If it works on another system, it simply means it is not compatible with yours and you have to get a device that is compatible with your toshiba system.

Good try.

Digital blue time lapse

Depending on the model of your USB, (1.1 or 2.0) it may or may not time out. With a 2.0 speed USB it will not typically tome out until about 30 hours of very high activity use. A 1.1, on the other hand can get to do that a lot. If your USB is a 2.0 get a computer expert to check that it is not malfunctioning. If it is a 1.1, I would suggest getting a USB upgrade.
