Question about Western Digital My Book Essential Edition (WDG1U5000N) 500 GB Hard Drive

1 Answer

I finally have an external hard drive to insure the security of my files. I would like to know if there is a freeware program that will scan my external drive and update it with any new files on my computer without recopying everything each time. I guess It would be called it an updater perhaps? Thanks.

It depends on your operating system.

Most versions of windows have a nackup facility that can APPEND new files to an existing backup.

You may have to install it from your CD if you are talking windows.

his is done by using ADD REMOVE programs and then selecting WINDOWS COMPONENTS

You will find it listed in one of the sections there and when you add it it will ask for your windows CD.

My Iomega 1tb drive now only shows invalid shortcuts instead of the directories to my 800 gb of data please help!


first, recover your files with data recovery program like asoftech data recovery program.
http://www.geardownload.com/system/asoftech-data-recovery.html

I've had to use it many times in the past but in this case you need to plug that drive into another system as an external drive or slave drive and run the software from there. It will rebuild the drive and hopefully recover the files.

After you get back your files, you can then format the drive.

I have a FreAgent/Go 500 Gig, it will only show shortcuts of files I had in it and they do not open the real file


Sounds like a virus or trojan. There's a lot of good info in the link below. You might try downloading Malwarebytes and doing a FULL scan. It's a good little program that should find and remove anything undesirable.

Files disappearing on external hard-drive (nexstar.3)


In this case you should use data recovery software to try recovering the files and data, provided those lost data are not fully overwrtten.

Be careful: Before your files are recovered, do not attempt to save more files to the external in case the original files are overwritten.
