Does my Maxtor back up my iphotos?


Run a time machine backup. Then the easiest way would be to find a photo that you are willing to delete in iPhoto.

Jot down the name of the photo file, delete it. Then empty the trash.

Then go into time machine, try to search for that file, when you locate it, restore it. If you can then there is probably a good chance that you time machine backup is good.

To be on the safe side why not create a manual backup.

You'll find the iPhoto Library at:


/Users/username/Pictures

"username" will be your name that appears when you login to the computer.

  1. To get there, double-click the icon for your hard drive to open it, then double-click the Users folder. Double-click your Home folder, which is identified by a house icon and your username, and then double-click the Pictures folder to open it.
        1. Inside the Pictures folder you'll see a file called iPhoto Library. Copy the iPhoto Library file to a location other than your hard drive, such as your Maxtor external hard drive.

With the scandisk inserted in your computer, locate the drive where you inserted and the file folder with the data you want to erase and delete or empty the file folder. If you do not have an available drive to place the scandisk, connect the media device with the scandisk included and locate the data via drive/file folder. You can locate the drive/file folder by clicking start>computer>drivelocation>scandisk folder.

Iomega 1tb drive have files hidden


You might not have the appropriate software installed on your computer to show / read the files
IE: adobe flash , directx , win zip , codec , word ......
Determine if access is denied by a sharing violation because the folder and its files are in use by someone else or the computer itself. Wait several minutes, and then attempt to access the folder again. Go to the location where the file or its folder are stored on your computer. Lock files are hidden files in Microsoft Windows. Select "Show hidden files." The lock files for Windows applications have a ~ symbol in front of the file name. For example, for test.txt, the lock file is named ~test.txt. In UNIX, the lock file may be identified by an extension of .lock or .swp within in the file name. Delete the lock file. The locked file or folder unlocks. Reboot your computer, and bring it up in Safe Mode. This prevents the startup of many of the system services and programs that could be locking the files or folders. Attempt to access the folder location and its contents. If the folder is available, save the folder or its contents in a directory to which you have access. Record the active processes running on the computer and the programs available in Safe Mode. Then, log into the computer after a normal boot up. Review the applications running in the background in normal setup. One of these applications may be preventing access to the file folder and its contents. If there are applications that run in normal mode that do not run in Safe Mode, turn off those applications. Then, try to access the file folder again. b> Are the Security Permissions for the Folder or Its Contents Preventing Access? b> Check the file folder permissions by right-clicking on the folder and selecting "Properties." In the "Properties" dialog box, select the "Security" tab. The "Name" list box includes the user and group permissions. If there is no "read," "read and execute," or "write" permissions in your user profile, you do not have permission to view the file folder or its contents. These security permissions are typically set by system administrators. System administrators may be trying to prevent end users from altering system files that are critical to the computer running smoothly. Contact your system administrator, and request local administrative rights to the computer. This allows you to gain access to the files and folders that are restricted to administrators. Edit the system policies using administrative tools via the gpedit.msc program. Users can add, read and modify permissions for folders and other objects via this program. Full control is the best system policy, because it includes read, write, execute and modify rights. However, access to the gpedit.msc program may be restricted, as well. Go to the command line (press on the "Windows" and the "R" keys on your keyboard at the same time), and enter the CACLS command for the folder name. Use the command format: C:\> cacls <foldername> /E /G <username>:F CALCS stands for Change the Access Control ListS. This command allows you to add your user name to the security settings to permit access to the protected system folder when the gpedit.msc program is not available. Hope this helps.

Hi, I just purchased the nexxtech 2gb to cop my photos. I am 65 of age. Just starting into this. Iput it into the back of my computer and nothing happened


Hi,

When you say "put it into the back of my computer", I assume you mean you connected it with a USB cable? It is perfectly normal for "nothing" to happen. This doesn't mean it isn't connected or ready for use. Open the START/WINDOWS menu in the bottom left corner of your desktop and from the resulting pop-up menu, click on "Computer" in the right-hand column. You should then get a list of devices/drives connected to your PC.

Depending on what else is connected, The Nexxtech 2GB should be listed under the heading "Removable Storage" as either USB Mass Storage (D:) or possibly Nexxtech (D:).

(D:) Simply denotes a drive path but it could also be listed as (E:), (F:), or (G:) depending on how many other devices are already attached. Once you have identified the drive in this list, you can double-click on it with the left mouse button to open it and it will function like any other folder on your PC. You can copy files or folders to it, create new folders and delete files and folders.

If you have opened the list of drives as detailed as above and cannot identify your nexxtech drive in the list, please post back with details of which drives DO appear in the list and I will try to assist you further.

Regards,
BElectric

How do i transfer photos from my hp photosmart m537 camera to sandisk cruzer micro usb 2.0 flash drive 2gb.


Connect the HP camera to your windows pc using the usb cable provided. Open My Computer to ensure that the camera is being properly enumerated (given a hard disk letter). make note of the drive letter assigned.

If you have more than one USB port, insert your cruzer micro 2.0 stick into another USB port. Look in my computer again to determine what drive letter was assigned to the flash stick. Open a windows explorer window for each of the locations. One for the camera, the other for the flash stick. Its likely that the picture files are in a subfolder of a folder called DCIM.

Once you locate the files you want to transfer, you can highlight them using the mouse (click/drag a box around the files you want) and drag them to the other open window (flash stick folder)


If you don't have another available USB slot on the compter, you'll need to copy the files from the camera to a temporary location on your computer and then move them to the flash drive. In this case, make a new folder on the desktop and name it temporaryfiles. open that folder. open the drive letter assigned to the camera and copy whatever files you want from the camera to 'temporaryfiles'...

Then power off the camera and remove the usb cord from the computer. attach the flash disk to the newly free'd up usb port and open a windows explorer window to it. drag whatever files you want from 'temporaryfiles' folder into the folder for the flash stick.

I hope this helps!
-Ray
