Question about Iomega HDD External Desktop (32660) 80 GB Hard Drive
Ok. I need help, on how to move the contents of my internal hard drive in my computer to my external iOmega desktop 320gb hard drive. I want to make sure to do it right, and if you have any other tips on how to make a computer faster, please let me know.
Computer manufacturer: eMachines
Processor: Intel celeron D
Model: Windows XP sp2
Internal hard drive: 80Gb
Disc, DVD compatible, DVD+rewriteable compatible
One disc input.
Internet: Bellsouth DSL, westell modem, lynksys router
Misc. crystal XP.net vista look-alike inhancers
Vistamizer 2.0 TRue transparency, glass 2k, blaero start orb, win flip, Thoosje's sidebar.
It takes 30mins+ on start up, and is extremely, I mean extremely slow, freezes up at least 20 times every day, maybe more. All hardware, self installed. Including modem, ad wireless router. PLEASE HELP ME!!
P.S. After movement od hard drive contents to the external hard drive, internal hard drive (C:) is to be deleted. Thank you for your time.
There is a program on the xp cd called Fastwiz- it will save all your profile data for you. Unfortunately it's REALLY slow and you would be better doing it by hand. If you want to do it by hand you will need to copy all the data in the Documents and settings folder for all the profiles, plus any other data that you will need to reload the drivers. I recommend saving the e-machines drivers directory.
Wiping and reloading the operating system is the best way to resolve problems with a slow system, and a faster bigger newer hard drive is a good idea too. E-machines have a tendency to just die after a year- be aware that you get what you pay for. Also adding more ram to this system will help too.
