How do use Verbatim to back up files


Which operating system ?

Determine how much space you need. The first step in backing up your hard drive is to figure out how much space you will need to back up all of your files. You can do this in a couple of ways. Find out how large the hard drive is on your computer first to see if you can back up the whole thing. Click on "My Computer," right-click the "C" drive and select "Properties." This shows the approximate of your hard drive, how much space is actually taken, plus the space used by your operating system. If your hard drive is manageable (the space actually taken), back up the whole thing. Your second option is to create a file called "Backup" and copy all of your important files into it. Right-click on the folder once everything is copied over and choose "Properties" to find out the of the folder. This is how much space you will need to back up your important files only. Choose a backup method. Choose either an external hard drive, data disks (CDs, for example) or use an online backup service. Plug the flash drive or the External Hard drive into your computer's rectangular-shaped USB drive. Wait for Windows to recognize the system. Windows operating systems use "plug and play" technology, which means that computer peripherals like USB flash drives can be recognized instantly by the system without further need for device configuration. Open the drive on your computer. Open the "My Computer" directory if using Windows XP or the "Computer" directory if using Windows 7 or Vista. Locate the flash drive letter and icon under the section named "Devices with Removable Storage." Double-click the flash drive icon to open it. Transfer files to the flash drive. Click the "Restore" button in the top-right corner of the "Computer" or "My Computer" directory to shrink the window so that you can view your computer's desktop background. Open the folders or locations of the files which you want to save to the flash drive. Click and drag with your mouse each of the files and folders you want to save to the flash drive over to the empty space in the "My Computer" or "Computer" window. Release the mouse button to let the files "drop." Close the windows and directory locations when finished. Save files directly onto the flash drive. From an open file (i.e. text, spreadsheet, image files. etc.), click the "File" menu and "Save as" option. Select the "My Computer" or "Computer" directory in the drop-down menu at the top of the "Save As" box. Double-click the flash drive letter under the "Devices with Removable Storage" section. Click the "Save" button to save the file onto the flash drive. Close the windows and files when finished

You might have to create a folder you can do this by right clicking in the backup destination drive selecting new folder and name it lets say Back Up 2012 for the excercise.

File size limit for Buffalo HD 250 GB Hard Drive backup


The file is too large meaning that the size of that SINGLE file is too large. Your hard disk is probably formatted to a FAT32 file system, this results in a maximum of 4gb PER FILE maximum transfer. What you could do is archive it into a few parts using winrar and then moving it onto the disk, and when you need the file just extract the archive. Your problem isn't the total free space, it's the size of that file chunk.

I formatted my Maxtor Basics 500gb to FAT32 and now it only has 131gb of space, I have no idea how to recover it, any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.


There's a Windows limit to how much you can format with a Fat32, and that's 128GB (1024bytes=1KB system) or as nowadays system measure them as 1000bytes=1KB... anyways.
You can use Easeus Partition Manager home, it's great for all kinds of cool stuff like partition recovery.
It's fairly simple and the program is quite graphical so you wont need any explanation, just follow the process, it's really simple.
However, there's a reason why it's not recomended to have large FAT32 partitions: instability, large volume information section, limit of max. 4GB file size... On the other hand the plus is that it can be read on PC, MAC, PS3...heck, maybe even a gadget-ready microwave. So you'll have to weight out the pros and cons. If you only use a PC and most of your friends are PC fans, then I'd suggest that you go with NTFS. It's stable (like server stable), no limitation to file size, relatively small footprint of the file allocation table, smaller sector size (which means there won't be too much slack space) and so on.

If this was informative and helpful please vote with a Thumb Up. Thank you.

I have a .pst file that is 5 GB which I am trying to copy to a sandisk flash drive cruzer 8 GB. I keep on getting an error message stating the the file is to big for the destination file system. What...


Two possibilities:

1. you already have more than 3GB of files on the SANDISK.
So, delete some files, or "burn" them to a CD/DVD disk,
so that you have at least 5 GB of "free" space available.

2. the "file-system" (the way that the "table-of-contents" is laid-out on the SANDISK) limits the size of a single file to 2GB.
The "file-system" on your 'C:' drive does *NOT* have that identical limitation (it does have a "maximum-file-size", but it is MUCH larger).

Open Outlook, and "compress" all the folders.
Perhaps, the PST file will shrink to less than 4.7 GB.
If it does, then you can "burn" that file onto one DVD-writable disk.

Memory to low on c drive message pops up even after I transferred most of my files to d drive


Are you referring to the virtual memory or just disk space? Assuming you are on Windows, even after transferring files, the space might not be enough. You can change the pagefile size (virtual memory) or just transfer enough files and even move your temp directory to D. That way the partition/drive with OS will have enough space. Now a days keep at least one gig free there. It usually starts complaining when it gets close to 500 MB.

Will not let me save a file and reads file permission error


I think for some reason there is a limit to the number of files (nb: number of files not amount of space used) that the root directory can handle. Try making folders and moving files into these to cut down on the number of root directory entries.

Error message 0x80070052


I tried setting up a new folder and transfering the files, this did not work either so I just purchased a new Jump drive. I had plenty of space remaining on the Lexar, however, my time was worth more than the cost of a new drive. I'll keep looking for "free solutions" to my problem and if I find the answer, I'll respond.

Problems with transferring files


I think I know which limit you have hit then. The maximum size for any single file on a FAT32 system is 2^32-1 bytes which is 1 byte less than 4GB (binary version of the number, not decimal) or 4,294,967,295 bytes.
