SOURCE: My external hard drive is unreadable

Does you drive make any sounds like these? If yes you have a mechanical problem and you should get a specialist to work on it. If not - try to remove the drive from USB casing and connect it directly to your PC or put into another USB enclosure. This should help if the problem is with the enclosure itself and not with the drive.

Quick format removes files from the partition, but does not scan the disk for bad sectors, while a normal format does that. That's why the formatting takes so much longer.
You should definitely check your drive for bad sectors by issuing "chkdsk /r" in the command line, which scans for and attempts the recovery of bad sectors.

If there is a bad sector somewhere, your system might crash at any time and it might be at a very inconvenient moment.
If you find bad sectors, you should consider replacing the drive

Hello,
If you can see the drive in Applications --> utilities --> Disk Utility, then you will be able to reformat it in the Mac OS format and read it.
Good day, Damien

How to partition the HD into two portion with OS windows 8?


Hold the Windows logo key on your keyboard and press "R" (Winkey+R). This will launch the Run the utility. Type "diskmgmt.msc" inside the text box and press Enter. This will open the Windows Disk Management utility. This is where you can format, create, and delete hard drive partitions.
order to create a partition, you need unallocated space. Unallocated space is basically disk space that is not formatted or not prepared for storage. Formatting is the act of preparing a disk space for storage. It similar to building a foundation for a place to be inhabited. Thus, unallocated space is just useless blank space with no "foundation" or format.
To create unallocated space, you need to shrink your hard drive. When you shrink your hard disk, the remaining space becomes unallocated.
To do this, right-click your main drive and select "Shrink Volume."
You will then see the region of unallocated space (shaded black). Remember, this space is not yet usable.
Now you need to create "foundation" or format for the unallocated space. This will allow for the space to become usable.
Right-click the region of unallocated space and select "New Simple Volume."
This will launch the New Simple Volume Wizard. This will guide you through the installation process.
ssign the disk a drive letter. You can choose any drive letter that is not currently in use.
Select a file system for the disk. The file system is basically the type of format or "foundation" the storage device has. If you plan on installing a Windows OS to the partition select the"NTFS" file system.
Name the partition in the "Volume Label" text box. You can choose any name for your partition.
Now click "Finish" to create the new partition.

Is it possible to format a HCS725032VLA380 in NTFS ?


Absolutely...just make sure you have any data you want to keep backed up. If there's no data, then it's pretty straight forward.

  1. To format right click on My Computer (or just Computer in Windows 7) and select Manage.
  2. Go down to Storage and select Disk Management
  3. You'll see a list of drives connected to your system. If the drive you need to format doesn't have a partition, it will show as either Unallocated or Not Initialized.
  4. If it's not initialized right click on the drive and select to initialize it.
  5. Once complete, the box will show "Unallocated".
  6. Right-click on the box to the right of the drive listing (Disk X) and select New Partition.
  7. Accept all of the default parameters, or change the volume name it's up to you. You might want to select quick format to save some time.
  8. The formatting will start and will be busy until complete.
  9. Once the formatting is complete your drive will be accessible.

How to install wins 8 on dell Inspiron netbook 1018


proceed according. God bless you
  1. Create a New Partition
    • 1 Launch the Disk Management tool on your computer running Windows 7 by opening the Start menu and typing "diskmgmt.msc" in the search bar. The Disk Management tool, showing all connected storage devices, appears.
    • 2 Pick the hard drive onto which you'll install Windows 8. The normal choice is Disk0, which is the primary hard drive. This disk should already show your C: drive, and possibly other items like recovery partitions.
    • 3 Verify the available free space on the selected disk. For most computers with no other dual-boot setups installed, the entire drive should be occupied, so you'll have to shrink an existing drive (like C:). If there is a section with a black bar titled "unallocated," then this represents free space not currently in use.
    • 4 Shrink your C: drive by right-clicking on it and selecting "Shrink Volume." The computer assesses and reports how much free space is available on the disk. You need a minimum of 16GB of free space to install 32-bit Windows 8 and 20GB of space for 64-bit Windows 8. Type either 160000 or 200000 in the "Enter the amount of space to shrink in MB" box. Increase that number if you want additional storage space for files and programs within Windows 8. Click "Shrink" to continue.
    • 5 Right-click on the new unallocated space and select "New Simple Volume." Leave the defaults, ensuring that NTFS is selected as the file system type. Give the drive a name, like "Windows 8."
    • 6 Insert your Windows 8 installation disc or USB drive into your computer. When the new drive is formatted, restart the computer and boot from your installation disc or drive.
    Install Windows 8
    • 7 Select "Custom" during the Windows 8 Setup initialization process.
    • 8 Select the new drive you created when the installation program asks you where you want to install Windows 8. Be sure to select the drive with the label you used for the new drive; if you install to the C: drive, you will overwrite your existing Windows 7 installation.
    • 9 Follow onscreen instructions to install Windows 8.
    • 10 Reboot after you install Windows 8, ensuring that you've removed any installation media. When the computer restarts, you are presented with a boot screen that lets you pick between Windows 7 and Windows 8.

Adding 250gbhd to double my storage.Hdd in bios but not in "my computer"


Is this an internal or external drive? If it is an internal drive, you need to partition and format the drive. For Windows XP and later, this is available in the drive management service. In Windows 7, click Start > Control Panel > System and Security. Look in Administrative Tools and click on Create and Format Hard Disk Partitions. (Make sure that you have logged in as the administrator.) In the lower section of the window, the new hard drive should show (probably as Disk 1). Select the correct drive (it will probably say unallocated space). Click on Action > All Tasks to find the option to format the disc. If this drive will be used with the current computer or only with the recent Windows OS, format the disc in NTFS. Mac's have a similar utility but HFS is their current file system. If the drive will be used on multiple computers with different OS versions, format it in FAT32.

Other programs (Partition Magic, Partition Manager) will give you more options for formatting.

If this is an external drive, looking for the drive in Disk Management will let you check if the OS finds the disc but has a problem with the format.

I hope this helps.

ONLY 650 MB OUT OF ONE TERABYTE lacie all terrain


For anyone else that runs into this issue, you don't need the EXE.

Follow the instructions on here to get to the Storage control panel area on your computer so you can view partitions:
http://www.ehow.com/how_5022760_check-partitions-hard-drive.html

Locate your LaCie drive, and delete the small partition that shows as "Healthy". Once you delete that, you should have a large "Unallocated" space. Format that normally using either FAT32 or NTFS. Your drive will now have its full allocation (which with a 500GB drive, should be around 465GB, give or take depending on the system accessing it).

I have a Lacie 320gb external harddrive which was connected to an eMac and is now connected to an Acer laptop. I've reformatted it as NTFS and it shows up in disk management as healthy but does not appear...


you need to give it a drive letter

A more reliable way to do this is via the computer management console

Start / Control Panel / Administrative Tools / Computer management / Disk Management.

Your drive should show up in here.

if it says Healthy and just above that gives the file system eg. NTFS or FAT32 etc it should be fine but may just need a drive letter.

If it does dot say any of those then right click on it and use the format option. Select how you want to format it (NTFS for XP is preffered)
and then tell it to do a FULL format. and also give it a drive letter !
It may take a while but I find it more reliable overall.

If it didn't have a drive letter then right click and use the Change Drive Letter and Paths option, then add a drive letter and use the one it offers.

I like to re-boot just to be sure windows sees it properly

Follow the Wisard, choose Quick Format and you've formated your Ex. Hard Drive. It should come up in My Computer now. Congrats!
