Once any hard drive is dropped it is not likely that it will work again. They are too fragile.

How back up your files (data) before doing system restore


<p>1. Use of pre-installed backup tools. Many computers have a backup software installed when you buy (including Time Machine backup and restore for Mac or Windows). These tools are designed to transfer files to various media they create on the computer hard drive or external hard drive, you can prevent a total loss of data is performed. When you open the utility, follow the onscreen instructions to complete the backup. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Back up important files on a USB stick or Memory Stick. Insert the stick into a USB port on your computer. Drag the selected files to the disk icon on the desktop (Mac) or PC (Windows) will appear. Flash drives and memory sticks are very mobile and can be stored in small spaces such as basements. Although they generally do not have a capacity of more than a few gigabytes (GB), they are large enough to store your important files. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Enter an external hard drive. These external hard drives usually have a very large capacity and can therefore keep most or all files on a disk. Connect the external hard drive via a USB port. You can drag and drop files on your hard disk or use it as a means of backup using a backup utility installed. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Burn your important files on a CD-R or DVD-R. an entire hard disk backup can be many slices, so this option is ideal if you want large media files or documents for easy access later. Insert the CD into the CD-ROM and follow the instructions on the screen (for Windows and Mac) to back up and store files. <br /> <p><br /> <p>5. Upload files for storage in the cloud. Services in the Internet cloud storage (like Mozy and drop-down box) are great ways to backup files to the internet access from any Internet enabled device. Important files with sensitive information may only be attached to a back-up cloud services such as Mozy. Clouds, Drop box is ideal for backing up photos, videos and other files less sensitive.<br />

How to Decrypt files to plain text on my htc mobile


If you can access the files via your USB on your PC, drag and drop the file to your brouser. Or you can use Starsuit and open them as Unicode... Hope this helps. The other thing is save the files in the first place (if you have the option) as txt files.

I got a Polaroid PMP282-8 Music & Video Player with 2.8" LCD display and I can't figure out how to put music on it?


First off just download song off the internet and save it to the desktop where its easy to access. Then plugin mp3 and a window should pop up saying "mp3 access files using windows computer" click that one. Then just drag and drop the .mp3 file into the mp3 folder.

I want to delete some folders previously backed up on my Seagate 100 GB USB External Drive. When I drag the items to my Trash (MacBook Pro) the next time I look into the Seagate, the files are there. How...


At the moment you're just copying them to you trash bin.

Access the requisite file/folder on your external drive, RMB click, should give you a drop down menu. Choose the Delete or Move to trash option.

Alternatively, click on (highlight) the file then click on file at the top of your browser window and select delete from the drop down menu.

I am trying to copy files on to a flash drive or recordable CD to back them up but I can't because I can't drag my files at all


Sometimes you can't drag files for back up due to software limitations. Try to start your back up program first and then highlight the files you want to back up.

Select the files by highlighting them and right click for a drop down menu. If there is no option given to send to back up, your program may not support drag and drop.

Backing up files is not the same as saving them. Be careful, because you need the back up program to open them again.

If you only want to save your files rather than back them up, do this:

Highlight the files. Right click on the files you have highlighted. Make sure your cursor is right on top of the highlighted files. right click and on the drop down menu choose -send to-.The menu will give options. One of the options is send to compressed folder. This also saves space and is easy to open.

Of course, there are a variety of ways to approach this task, but this is the easiest.

An actual backup program compresses and backups your files and you need tags to access them in the future. In this case, the program simply may not support drag and drop.

Thanks for the question, please comment with the exact backup program you wish to use and we can help you with that if this solution was unacceptable.

WMP 11 can't access files to sync with sansa clip


1ST: Just try to 'reset' by holding down the main center button AND pushing UP on the lock/off-on button, for about 8-9 seconds,
It will then 'refresh' the database, shouldn't lose anything,
OR:
Most other problems can be fixed ultimately by the following;
REFORMAT the SansaDisk Clip by finding it in My Computer and right click then just 'format' the thing. THEN drag and drop new music into it (or books), DRAG and DROP, you apparently erase the thing with a 'FORMAT' ....BUT - it's .sys files remain and it is like new {as in empty}
This usually fixes almost anything, should even erase a virus (I'm guessing) but shouldn't hurt it.
Good Luck!
