Since I installed Leopard, it wants to download alot. I turned it off for a while but the upgrade seemed to work better. Now I am running out of space. How do I erase what is on there and reload my system for a bootable backup? I know that my Maxtor has orginal, Tiger and Leopard on the disk, lots of space. Please advise how I can reconfigure my disk, thanks. Ken

Download and install CCleaner, this will identify and remove files that buildup over time that you do not need. I suggest running this about once a week to help keep your computer clean and then defrag it at least monthly to improve performance. If you are still running out of space then you will need to upgrade to a larger hard drive. You can download CCleaner from http://www.ccleaner.com/
The internal Drive is a standard 3.5 inch IDE 7200RPM unit. you can indeed upgrade this to a 1TB drive as long as it's IDE wether 2.5 or 3.5. Luckily when Lacie was originally offering these drives you could get these in 1TB, so that won't be an issue.
1) Go to support.wdc.com
2) Click Downloads
3) Select MyBook, then your MyBook model (I selected MyBook Home, as it was appropriate to my hardware)
4) Download and install the WD Drive Manager (Mac)
Note that this software only updates the utilities that control the power button, drive lights, and capacity gauge. If the drive is otherwise not functioning properly, you'll probably need to seek alternate support: the hardware itself functions just fine for me as an external drive without installing any additional software or drivers.
Me too, i bought a LaCie BigDiskExtreme+ (1tb) and it keeps giving me Device removal error. I'm running Mac OSX Leopard. Worked for 5 minutes, now everytime it turn it on it goes away and comes back up, always giving me the error message. Any advice ?
the mac format of the drive is more scedualed than the windows xp or other so format ur drive so ur new operating system will install the principke sys files and it will be accecible in mac..but in windows xp u must format again...
Simple problem you made the partions using FAT 16 file system and 80 GB cannot be partition using win98 10 will limit the disk to 10 GB.
Remove all Partions And Use Windows XP to create partition during Installion.
the only thing I can sugest is upgrade norton ghost or use another disk imaging program I use powerquest drive image this works with usb support this program is better than norton ghost
I've used it on my laptop and pc backups as on my pc I do alot of editing and all editing software takes 15 gig and 4 hours to install with this it only takes 1 hour to recover all drive info.
hope this helps
