Unable to access space on Lacie remote drive

I have a 74 gig Lacie drive. Had 67 gigs saved on it. Deleted the files but my system shows that it still has 67 gigs used, and only 7 available. I'm using it with Mac OS X V 10.5.8. How do i make 74 gigs available?

Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.
Paul
P.S. Please note that I had limited choices on product. My actual product is: Lacie 74 gig drive 0893602101476K

The easiest way will be to format the disk drive. Highlight the icon, right click and format.

I connected my lacie hard drive to my macbook and it suddenly wouldn't recognize it anymore nor would my xbox 360. I have no idea why this happened because it was working 10 minutes previous to this...


Hardware failure. If you're really lucky it's just the case electronics board that has failed - take out the hard disk and connect it directly in a desktop. If it works there, copy all your files back while you still can. If even there it's not recognized it means that the hard disk itself has died - this is unfixable and all the data on it is lost.

try uninstalling a few unnecessary programs then click start run type cmd then type chkdsk/f which will automatically fix any corrupt files on your hard drive then defragment your hard drive

Problem with seeing files on external Hard drive


What has happened is that your file system on the hard drive became corrupt becasue windows had not updated the MFT on the drive. THe MFT is a table of contents regarding whats on your drive.

What happened is similar to someone cutting out a few pages of the table of contents in a book that has a lot of pages.

Windows tried to fix this stupid programming method by asking people to always use the "safely remove hardware" button in the taskbar to force it to update the MFT.
In this case yur a victim of the Hard Discs MFT not updating properly probably because software was accessing the drive when it was disconnected from the machine.

You need to run chkdsk to have it rebuild your MFT.

*NOTE: Remember to use the drive letter that the USB External is on.. Not just type CHKDSK. It will default to drive C to scan for errors. ex: c:\chkdsk g: (where g is the drive your external usb is)
If you get an error like "CHKDSK is not available for RAW drives.. see my notes below.
Beware that it will take a LONG TIME to perform this procedure.

If this doesn't fix it.. contact a data recovery specialist.. It's worth the cost. There are two types. Simple and Advanced.
Simple= recovering files your deleted with the delete button (fairly easy with the right software)
Advanced = recovering files from a hard disk crash or file system corruption. (Not easy and very time consuming)

Hard drive


Could you be more specific? Do you mean you had 28 gigs on your hard drive used up, but the backup only copied 7.5 gigs? The message you left is pretty sparse.
