The reservations that it means is the programme record slots available (the number of programmes that you can have set to record ) some boxes only allow 8-12 to be scheduled at a time

Does seagate external hard drive back up the whole system each time it backs up or only new data?


Step 1:
It will depend on which back up program you have or selected usually it will back up the entire system.
Scheduled backups are an integral part of any effective disaster recovery plan. The Windows Backup Utility is offered in a free download on Microsoft's website and, while it is not the most feature-rich tool on the market, the Windows Backup Utility will back up files to hard disk, CD-Recordable (CD-R) or tape at the times and dates specified for the scheduled job. Editing scheduled jobs can be easily done. Click the "Start" button in the lower left corner of the window. Select "All Programs." Choose "Accessories" and "System Tools." Select "Backup." Click the hyperlink "Advanced Mode" in the "Backup or Restore Wizard" window. Choose the "Scheduled Jobs" tab. Click on the icon in the calendar for the job you want to edit. Select the "Properties" button from the "Scheduled data" tab. Choose the "Schedule" tab. Select the task schedule from the drop-down box beneath "Schedule Task." Set the start time by clicking the up and down arrows in the box under "Start Time." Choose the "Settings" tab. Select the desired options using the check boxes under "Scheduled Task Completed," "Idle Time" and "Power Management." Click the "OK" button. Click the "OK" button in the "Scheduled Job Options" window. Type the user name used to run the job in the space beside "Run as" in the "Set Account Information" window. Type the password and confirm the password. Click the "OK" button. Click the "X" in the upper right corner of the "Back up utility" window.

how to back up a hard drive


Determine how much space you need.

The first step in backing up your hard drive is to figure out how much space you will need to back up all of your files.


You can do this in a couple of ways.

Find out how large the hard drive is on your computer first to see if you can back up the whole thing. Click on "My Computer," right-click the "C" drive and select "Properties."


This shows the approximate size of your hard drive, how much space is actually taken, plus the space used by your operating system.


If your hard drive size is manageable (the space actually taken), back up the whole thing.

Your second option is to create a file called "Backup" and copy all of your important files into it.


Right-click on the folder once everything is copied over and choose "Properties" to find out the size of the folder.

This is how much space you will need to back up your important files only.


Choose a backup method. Choose either an external hard drive, data disks (CDs, for example) or use an online backup service.


There are advantages and disadvantages to all.

An external drive is convenient because you can plug it into other computers and immediately transfer or copy files without needing the Internet or having to worry at all about security.


However you have to carry the drive with you and always face the remote possibility that both your computer and the hard drive would break.


Data disks provide the same advantages and disadvantages as external hard drives: portability, but the possibility of theft or breakage.

You can also use an online backup service.


These services range in price depending on the amount of storage.

The advantage of an online service is that you can access your files from anywhere there is Internet, and it is generally cheaper, especially for small amounts of service.


Also, you don't need to carry or store another piece of equipment.

The disadvantage is your backup is stored on the service's external server, so security is a potential issue.


Back up your files. Once you have chosen your method of backup, do not forget the most important step: back up your files.


For external media, go into "My Computer" and double-click the "C" drive to open it.

Select all the files if backing up your entire hard drive, or select your "Backup" folder if just backing up your important files.


Holding your "CTRL" key, drag your selected files to your back up source, either your external hard drive or data disk drive.


Release your mouse button and "CTRL" key and allow the files to be copied onto your backup media.


Hope this helps.

Backup hdd to external hd


DVD recorders are usually not the first selection for backup of data files. you may be better off with a 1 Tbyte external drive, which is suited for that purpose. Even though the DVD drive has the capacity, there are usually formatting issues with data files being burned to a DVD recorder.

Unable to access files


To access the files off the hard drive another way - remove the hard drive from the case and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and then plug it into a working computer's USB port. If the computer see the hard drive as an external hard drive/storage device and you can open the folders and files then backup your data. This also indicated the hard drive is OK and the Western Digital case/electronics is faulty.
To use this as an external USB hard drive, put the hard drive in an USB adapter case.

I don't know how to access my Western Digital Backup. I have no icon to click.


hi

If you have a WD Media Center, Dual-option Combo, or Dual-option USB external hard drive, you can use the Retrospect Express software that comes with the drive to create a backup schedule that will backup your data onto the drive.

To setup an automatic duplicate schedule in Retrospect Express 6.5 on a PC, please follow the instructions below.
  1. Start Retrospect Express by pressing the Automatic Backup button on the front of your Media Center external hard drive after you have installed the Retrospect software and powered on and connected the drive.

  2. You will be presented with the Western Digital Automatic Backup Wizard. Click Next to continue.

  3. Highlight the drive(s) that contains the data you wish to backup and click Next. To select multiple drives or folders, hold down the Ctrl key and make your selections.

  4. You will have a choice to backup your documents only or all files, make your selection and click Next.

  5. Highlight the drive you wish to copy your data to and click Next.

  6. You will have the option to run the data duplication daily or once a week. Make your selection and click Next.

    • If you choose a daily duplication, you will have to select the time that you'd like the duplication to start each day, then click Next.

    • If you choose a weekly duplication, you will have to select the day and time that you'd like the duplication to start, then click Next.

    • If you wish to run the duplication one time when you are finished setting up the schedule, check the Start the backup now box and click Finish. Otherwise, just click Finish.

    • You will see the Automatic backup button glow a solid blue. When the blue light is on it indicates that the automatic duplication schedule is enabled and your duplication is set to run at the scheduled time.
For the duplication to run successfully, you must have both the computer and drive powered on and connected correctly at the scheduled time.

Lightly Dropped Seagate 100GB External Hard Drive


Your not going to like this, but remember you did ask..
The only way to recover your data is to use a data recovery centre.
You can try this place if you are in the USA
This is not an endorsement of that particular company, but an idea of what you will be dealing with.

For the record, there is no such thing as a light drop when it comes to hdd's. The drive will have recorded the damage as a G-Force that can be read off the controller board at the factory and will not be covered under any warranty either.

Sorry for the bad news.

I can't find my pictures on my external hard drive


What type of external drive do you have and what are you using to perform the synchronization? What type of sync schedule are you on? Is it time based, or upon connection or other activity? Have you change your folder arrangement or relocated the pictures on the source drive?
