Western digital corporation(wdc) is probably the maker of the disk, and default name for their drive

open my computer, one click(left) on the drive, rename or open properties, and voila, you can rename it to whatever makes your clock wind up.

My hard disk c: drive 100%. free space is zero.i delete my tem file and others un necessary file.but free space show 678MB.why


If you manually deleted the Temp files, there are still many more which are hidden from your view. You can use system utilities like Ccleaner or TuneUp. (Click Here to Download Ccleaner), install it and run the "Run Cleaner", you'll see how much space is freed up from your computer, i.e from C: drive.

You also need to understand that all the files saved on the Desktop, My Documents, etc.. are saved on C: Drive, All Programs installed are also installed on the same drive if you didn't select the installation directory during the installation.

If possible, move files from My Documents, including My Pictures, My Music, My Videos etc.. to other Drive, i.e other partition.

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I cant seem to use my 320 gb mobile hard drive. when i connect it to the usb, my laptop reads it but i cant save files into it..help me please.


try to connect your device into your pc and then, try to save files again, if this doesnt work, try to reformat your hard drive, im sorry to say that all your previous files will be deleted upon the format. after this, make partitions to hard drive. then save some of your files into it. if that doesn't work either, try a disk scan to check if your hard drive has bad sectors.

Wd external hard drive stopped working


Sounds like you need to create a new partition, and if you find that a partition already exists, delete it and create another.

MY external hard disk maxtor is not detected


Is this a new Maxtor external drive? It came with a CD. Run the utility.

If there is no data on it that you want to save, you can also blow away the partition and format it:
Right-click [My Computer]
[Manage]
[Disk Management]
Find your external Maxtor Disk inthe list and / or graph
Right-click on the disk and select either "Format" or "Delete Partition"
(try format first) Use "NTFS quick format"

If you delete the partition, then "Create Partition" and then format.
You can assign a drive letter or accept whatever it assignes (probably Drive D)
*done*

I want to do my assignment on word.i want to save this to my u.s.b ,im not great on computers and dont no how to save or if have to do anything so my computer regodnises the flash in the first place pleze...


Check
1. Word document .doc extension (Word 97-2003-document); this way
you can access the document even on older computers.
2. Connect the Cruzer always directly to the computer for transfers.
3. USB flash drive enough free memory (e.g. pics require a lot of memory)
4. USB flash drive has memory format FAT or FAT32
5. Have a backup on your computer on a seperate partition of the hard drive on your computer; another partition than the place where "My documents" are located. (in case you should have to restore the Operating System)

See next items how to locate your flash drive on the computer.:

Windows requirements:

When there's a drive letter conflict it can happen that the flash drive is not recognized, see:
33f62be.jpg
Once you can locate the drive and know if there's plenty of memory
free you can drag and drop your document from the computer to
the flash drive: the document on the computer will stay as well.

You can also right click on the document and next select copy.
Then select (left click) your flash drive, next right click and select paste in the field of the flash drive or any map on the flash drive.
