Need software for simple tech 96300-40001

That software is not required for operation of the drive; however, you're more than welcome to download it here:

Click the blue link that says STORAGESYNC BACKUP SOFTWARE VERSION 1.42.

Then open the compressed (ZIP) folder and then double-click on the program file and click Setup... then go through the short install process to get that software on your computer.

Keep in mind that you don't need a program like that; Windows already has backup software built into the operating system which you can check out more info about here:

Simpletech 250 GB External Harddrive won't backup 180GB . Says it is full.

click start control panel administrative tools computer management disk management right click on your drive select properties click tools you should see click check now click start two boxes

automatically fix files and scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors place then a tick in both boxes then select check now start

you might tick one box then return after its finished the first repair then return and tick the second box you should not do anything while the chkdsk utility is in progress any input may damage this drive

I found that you get best results by ticking one box then returning after it has finished then tick the other box

then you restore it to its default status

Right click on usb drive select properties you will have an array of options

Select the hardware option then select your drive properties policies

restore defaults


Right click on your drive select properties then on customize restore Default in W 7

hope this helps

I have uploaded everything on my Mac laptop hard drive to my SimpleTech external hard drive. I removed most of my music (in iTunes) and some other files to make room on my Mac. Now I'm having trouble...

You may need to tell iTunes where your iTunes media folder location is. You can do this in iTunes, go iTunes>Preferences>Advanced Tab>Change button, then navigate to where your iTunes media is and choose this as its location.

Try to go through disk management and see if it works?
Open control panel then select administrative tools then disk management. Then in left column click disk management.
If you locate it may be it must be initialise by the system or need to create partition by formatting.
You can also check all the cables , the power cables the adapter , try to change the Usb cable also..
Good luck !!

I have SimpleTech drive that I used Storage Sync to back up C drive. Took drive to work and since all the files are 'bpa' cannot open them. I compare this to a simulation of what I bought the drive for -...

The BPA files are the backed up copies of your data. The simpletech utility backs up your files to compresse file ending in BPA. Any computer running the simpletech restore program can extract the data from these files.

You will simply need to install this software on a spare computer in order to test the backups. Frankly though I would just use windows backup to copy the files/folders you want to the drive raw as this can be read anywhere.

Hope this helps FixYa,

Simpletech 320 gb

It has to do with the way computers count. Computers count in binary where we count in decimal.
Hard drive makers list there drives capacities in the decimal format, where windows lists it in it's binary format.
Wikipedia has a good explanation.

Also, the drive may have some preinstalled software on it that could be taking up a bit of space (it's usually not much).
