Just open it and highlight everything then rt click and pick delete,
and you should go to my computer, and rt click on the drive letter
and pick format, and format the drive.

If you have personal info on it, get a program called boot and nuke,
its free for the once write, you boot from the disk you make
and it will erase so that most people can not retrieve data from it..

You have an issue - if my understanding is correct ' you are trying to restore your files, programs etc., to a new computer.

Backups are meant to restore the files and windows operating system etc. on the same computer the backup was created from. If you bought a new computer, it cannot do any restoration of the backup file from the hard drive.

if this is not the case, you need to provide more information for anyone to help.

Toshina External Hard Drive backup files in


Which program did you create the backup with? You'll need to install a copy of that software on your new computer. Then you will let the software find the backup and restore it. This will only work if you used a file backup. Many backup programs do not restore to systems with different hardware (different CPU, hard drive, OS, etc.).

However, I don't know which software uses *. PFT, pfi or pfp extensions. PBF is the format for one of the older Paragon Backup software versions. Acronis uses *.TIB . For a list of many of the software extensions used for backups, see https://www.file-extensions.org/filetype/extension/name/backup-files .

Canvio drives used to include NTI BackupNow EZ software. However, I believe that NTI backups use BJF or NTI extensions. The installer for that is here: http://support.toshiba.com/sscontent?contentId=3044104 . To check for other software for your external drive, try looking up your drive at http://support.toshiba.com/support/home . The available drivers and software should be listed. Alternatively, check if the backup software installer is still on the external drive.

I hope this helps.

Somehow you have scheduled a scandisk operation. The instruction for the PC to do this is stored in the registry. If you use a registry cleaner, such as ccleaner, you should be able to remove this request.

Apricorn EZ Upgrade II Cloned Drive Won't Boot - Toshiba P15 479


Basically this product does not do what it is advertised to do. You have to do a custom clone (not typical as suggested) and try to get an exact copy the drive you want to copy.

But... If you are upgrading to a larger drive you will now have to do a diskpart as an external drive in order to get the complete upgrade your drive.
