Question about Maxtor Shared Storage II 2TB Network External Dual-Drive Hard Drive

1 Answer

Lost all files without deleting?

First thing I did was moving/organizing all photos from different places within this hard drive to a photo folder (with sub-folders). Other things I did: resetting the modem & router due to internet connection problem, and adding my old router to be used as additional ports. Few days later, I couldn’t find that photo folder. A week later I couldn’t find anything in my hard drive. It showed only several empty public folders. Are those files still in there? How to retrieve them? I didn’t delete anything, and during that time I had a hard time to connect to the hard drive anyway. I couldn't really see the used space in My Computer as I didn't see the drive letter there.

Data Recovery Software Free Download


Download free data recovery software here to take lost or deleted computer, camera or mobile phone data back from hard drives, USB drives and SD memory cards after unexpected delete, shift delete, format, reformat, CHKDSK RAW drive errors, not formatted drive or card errors, virus damage, computer corruption or drive or card corruption and more known or unknown data loss troubles.
Data Recovery Software to Recover Hard Drive or USB Drive Files 
Generally, when your computer internal hard drive, external hard drive, USB portable hard drive or USB drive with many important PDF/DOC/PPT/EXCEL/TEXT documents, photos, audios, movies, apps, games and the like files are wiped or formatted or reformatted completely due to virus attack, drive RAW file system errors, drive unformatted errors or drive corruption problems, etc, or when your computer hard drive partitions data is lost due to accidental delete, shift delete or Recycle Bin emptying, do not spend treasure time in blaming yourself for preparing no hard drive data backup elsewhere in advance or depressingly suffering from giving up all very, very important information after data loss cases. In such situations, as long the original computer hard drive or USB flash drive is not overwritten by new files, the deleted or lost drive files are still able to be retrieved back with data recovery software. So, stop using your drive after delete or format and select a file recovery tool over the internet.
Data Recovery Software to Retrieve Android Phone SMS, Photos, Contacts and Data
If you unfortunately lose android cell phone SMS, photos, contacts and more data stored on a memory card that used inside this android mobile after a factory reset, security wipe, format or virus infection, or if you do have deleted very important android phone Micro SD or SD memory card games, apps and files since you do have accidentally erased mobile DCIM folder or the likes, do not rush to save new SMS, contact or file on this phone memory card and merely download data recovery software to scan this deleted, formatted, not formatted or RAW format phone memory card to see whether your phone information is still recoverable.
Please Note: Any data recovery software out there always helps scan and recover data that has been saved on the phone memory card, not phone internal memory. So, always save very, very important phone data on phone SD or Micro SD card, not phone internal memory. 
Data Recovery Software to Rescue iPhone Pictures, Videos and Files
When you are stuck in some iPhone photo, video and file loss troubles, there are often two clues for you: firstly go check your Google account to see whether all your lost or deleted information is synced there and is able to be copied back directly. And then, secondly, also download and apply data recovery software to scan the memory card of your iPhone or iPad to get lost data back.
But, if you never save data backups on other storage device and Google account, and also have not used a phone memory card, your data often will be permanently lost or deleted once you perform a deleting or formatting process there.
Data Recovery Software to Get Lost Camera Photos and Videos Back
If your camera photos and videos are lost because your camera memory card says: "the card is not formatted. Do you want to format it now?", because you mistakenly delete camera card folders or do a format there or because your camera memory card is blank or has unsupported file system, also do not panic and plunge this camera memory card to your Windows PC and see whether data recovery software is able to rescue your lost images, videos and files back with success.

Hello Zherin,

Please try the Data Recovery Software available in market to recover the files.Connect your external Transcend Hard Drive in the good windows machine. Install the demo software of the data recovery software( Recover Data for FAT and NTFS) from their particular website. Then scan the external Transcend Hard Drive using the Data Recovery Software. The software will take more time to scan the 500 GB Hard Drive. If the demo software displays all your data you need then purchase their full version software to save your valuable data. Because in demo software you are not able to save the data. Please try the data recovery software for FAT and NTFS partition.

Moving the iTunes Music Files to a Different Hard Disk/Folder If you are low on...


Moving the iTunes Music Files to a Different Hard Disk/Folder

If you are low on disk space in your iTunes folder then you can move these music files to another hard drive and keep your music library in tact without the need to create your music library again.

If you want to transfer your iTunes to an external USB hard drive, make sure that it is powered up and connected to your computer before opening iTunes.
Opened iTunes, click Edit and then Preferences. Click the Advanced tab.
Make sure the Keep iTunes Media folder organized checkbox is checked, and click Change.

Then select the location where you would like to move your files to. Click Select the Hard Drive and Folder or OK once you’re done.

The files will not move into their new positions by themselves –To do this – click File, Library and Organize Library. Check Consolidate Files.

When this process has been completed, go to the new location of your iTunes media and check the music files to see if they have migrated across correctly. Also play one or more tunes to test the music files.

The redundant iTunes music files can now be deleted from the original iTune location (C:\Documents and Settings\…..…\My Documents\My Music\iTunes). Delete everything from iTunes there except files titled iTunes Library.itl and iTunes Music Library.xml. These are still needed.

I lost the cd and need to send photos to computer can i download the disc from net


  1. You can download withought the disk By usng these instructions found on:
http://www.chriscamera.com/downloadingphotos.htm
Be Sure to rate macapplezoo 100% or whatever you think I deserve!
  1. DO NOT USE THE SOFTWARE PACKAGED WITH YOUR CAMERA.
  2. The easiest program to copy picture files from one place to another came with your computer. It's called "My Computer"
  3. Turn off your camera and remove the memory card.
  4. Insert the memory card in a card reader, either one that's built into the computer or a separate one.
  5. To open My Computer, click Start, and then click My Computer
  6. The memory card shows up as a removable disk in "My Computer"
  7. Left click on that removable disk to find a folder called DCIM (Digital Camera IMages)
  8. The files in that folder are your pictures, and their names end in "jpg"
  9. Copy those files by selecting them and copying them. The keyboard shortcut (control-A) marks all the photos in a folder and the keyboard shortcut (control-C) copies them to the computer's clipboard.
  10. Navigate to the folder within "My Documents" named "My Pictures" and paste (control-V) your photos into place.
  11. Learn how to make new subfolders within the master folder "My Pictures" so that it's easier to find a photo you want. I make up folders with names like "2007March" and divide my photos by the month taken.
  12. After you copy files or folders to the hard drive, it is useful to view the hard drive to confirm that the files are copied.
  13. Do not erase photos from your memory card until you are positive you've saved them on the hard drive!


Using the camera as a source, instead of a card reader (but we really, really suggest using a card reader)

  • You can copy photo files directly from your camera to the computer. Use the USB cable that came with the camera.
  • Very important: make sure that your batteries have a full charge before you start this procedure.
  • If the power fails during the transfer, data will be corrupted.
  • Be very careful when inserting the USB cable connector into the socket of the camera. This is one of the most fragile components of the camera and we have seen cameras damaged by carelessness.
  • After you copy files or folders to the hard drive, it is useful to view the hard drive to confirm that the files are copied.
  • For the greatest safety of your irreplaceable images, make a second copy on CD, DVD or detachable hard drive.

How do you remove synced photos from the iphone?


You can do this in iTunes - with the iPhone connected select the 'photos' tab and deselect the folder containing the photos, then hit Sync to remove them.
Alternatively, just move the photos to a different location on your hard drive (out of any folder that is set to sync to iPhone), then connect to iTunes and hit sync.
Hope that helps!

Lost all video files from harddrive


Hi, John. First things first - do not take more photos and do not save anything back to the camera memory card. Then connect it to your PC. Pick a digital camera recovery (recover photos, video, music files) to make a free scan and recover the deleted photos. Regards
