Question about Freecom (24358) 160 GB Network Hard Drive

1 Answer

Free space availabilities

I have 122 GB free memory on my FREECOM external hard drive. However, when I try to copy a movie of only 4.22 GB a message appears: The file is too large for the destination file system. Interestingly it does allow me to transfer movies of 699 MB without any problems. I have tried restarting the laptop; check the volume for errors and defragmenting, none of which worked.
Thank you.

Re: free space availabilities

Is it formatted as FAT32? If so, it doesn't support files larger than 4GB.

Backup the files you have on it, then reformat as NTFS.

Data Missing from 250GB Freecom HardDrive.

May be that is hidden..Go to the control pannel look for folder options and then in the view tab check the box show all files and then click ok.

connect it again see if are able to see your files again. if not then there are data recovery tools available on the internet.

But i think the first method will solve your problem

I have a lot of photos on the external Freecom hard drive. I've changed laptops, and have lost the CD, and anyway, can't remember the password! help!

This should not be to hard to recover.

Unless reformatted it is likely that only file indexing problem is the issue.

External hard drives are for copies.
Never allow a to ever be your only copy.

Just choose a drive,
Your Hard drive.
Then click the Scan button.

Hope this Tip helps you.

My computer has found new hardware for my freecom external storag

It should automatically allocate a drive letter to it. Go to windows explorer and hit F5 to refresh the display and you should see a new drive letter with the name of FREECOM next to it.

My 160g freecom hard drive has stopped showing my files says its empty but i have 20g of space used how can i get them to show up again?

make sure your reading the files on the same type of system.. if it is formated in NTSF you can only read in in newer windows systems, if it is in FAT32 it needs to be read on a fat32 system

Hard Drive not detected

If you are sure that the disk is okay, then I do suspect it is a power problem. Laptop USB ports often can not provide as much power as desktop USB ports. If possible try using an external power adapter with the disk and see if that works.
You can try some other external hard disk troubleshooting ideas, but probably it is the power.

Everything is possible. Few points. Is this external hd? Did you used the software and the drivers given by the manufacturer? Which OS are you using?
Yes it is possible to erase everything on any type of the drive and start from scratch. You can do this by formatting the drive make sure you do NTFS format.
