SOURCE: convert my external drive as my back up disk

Hi, keep it simple mate, just change where the back up is stored when your back up program asks you where to store it, just tell it to store to your external drive

Go to "My Computer".
Right click your drive and select properties.
click the "security" tab.
select one by one and click "remove" for each user.
When all users have been deleted, click on add.
Under the "Enter the object names to select", type "everyone"; click OK.
now, under "Permissions for Everyone", click the check box for "Full Control" for "Allow". Now all the boxes for Allow should be checked.
click OK.
Now you should have access to the drive.

Keep getting error message when I try to back up

Hi Steffani
Thats not much Info to go on.....?
Are you using TimeMachine or perhaps Carbon Copy Cloner to "BackUp"?

Is the drive full? Click on drive icon then Cmd I for Info.
Use the Drive Utility in your Applications / Utilities folder to wipe and erase & reformat your hard drive.
The best way to Test your drive is to Run the Drive Utility once a year, If security Option is selected it will test the whole surface for faults. But it takes 2-3 hours (good for overnight test)
Make sure you copy any needed files first.

My rule of thumb is
If your in an Office environment working on the computer all day then use TimeMachine
Otherwise use CCC as TimeMachine hourly backups are a waste of time for the average home user. And harder to recover data.
One CC Clone made every couple of months is adequate and if you need a little more then drag the USER folder over to the external HD each week. The rest should be in your clone, Which.... By-The-Way is Bootable in an emergency,
Thats why we call it a Clone.
Just hold the option key down directly after Power On.
The choice of boot drive will show up on Screen.

Several things could be happening.
1. the hard drive direct drive motor is giving out.
2. the hard drive is full.
3. the hard drive needs to be optimized ( that is defragmented) using the Windows defragment utility. If the drive is large it will take some time to complete.

I need to restore by backup files, Is there a certain process to follow in doing that or is it just drag and drop the files back to my C drive?

It depends on how you backed the files up. If you just drag and dropped them when you backed them up, then you can just drag and drop them back. But if you used a specific program to back them up, then you have to use the same program to restore them.

Maxtor 3000LE makes noise and will not show up on my computer

You will need a data recovery specialist. Hard drives making noise need to be taken apart and put into a special machine to pull what data is not damaged. The more you leave the drive on or play with it the more data is destroyed.
