I upgraded my hard drive and cloned my old info onto the Toshiba external hard drive. Now it only recognizes the capacity of the hard drive as 465 gb instead of 2 tb. How do I reset that back to 2 tb?


by up grading do you mean fitting a new hard drive
BY your statement you downloaded all of the data from the old hard drive onto an external 2tb hard drive ( to save everything I imagine )
if that is the case then the computer will only recognize the capacity of the new hard drive which would have been a 500gb unit
there is always a loss of capacity in a hard drive for internal workings and programs so what the computer is reading is most likely the capacity of the new hard drive
if you want to read the capacity of the external hard drive , you will have to click on it separately then go to properties and it will read total capacity and unused capscity

Installing a 320 gb hard drive in a Dell Inspiron N4020


The computer restore is trying to partition the drive into 2 logical drives and it cannot allocate the space it needs. Unless you have a clone of the drive or other hard drive there is nothing that you can do except get the right size.

Seagate 500GB FREEAGENT DESKTOP 7200RPM EXTERNAL USB 20 HARD DRIVE 16MB it just stoped working in the middle of the movie, complete blackout, tryed conect to another PC nothing came up, what it could be...


Try this:

1. Turn off the power supply to the hard drive.
2. Turn off your PC/laptop.
3. Connect the hard drive to the PC/laptop.
4. Turn on both devices.

It worked with mine.


You could also try installing Seagate Manager which can check for errors on the drive.

I have a Maxtor 500GB. It was working ok but today the green light is blinking and the external memory is not conected with the computer. I have tried using different USB ports, conecting an desconecting...


you could disassemble the case and remove the drive. it could then be connect via an external controller such as(http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=2477926&CatId=3770) and test if the drive itself is good in which case it is the controller in the case.
cheapest way I can think of to diagnose these external enclosures

Arogsy 500GB HD Drive won't boot up


If you have dropped it, most likely the hard disk is damaged, especially if it makes clicking noises..
The case is probably screwed together, but the screws are hidden with plastic covers or under a label.
If you are able to remove the hard drive you can connect the hard drive to an USB hard drive adapter and conect it to a working computer's USB port. It will see it as an external hard drive, if the hard drive is OK you can view and open the folders and files.
You can also connect the hard drive to a desktop PC as a slave drive if the PC's BIOS can support a hard drive of 500Gb.
If you are desparate to recover data from a damaged hard drive, there are companies that can recover data from these drives BUT it will cost you an arm and a leg for their services.
