Proper or Best way to use my newly installed WD SATA external Hard Drive;


The files are placed on the drive by you. Unless someone setup a special application files will not automatically migrate to another drive. You would not generally want them to because they would never be where you left them and be much harder to find. Primarily you will want to be moving data files and not application files (unless you uninstall from the internal drive and reinstall to the external drive) You can open my computer and find both drives -- you can drag/drop folders (containing only data, mp3s, videos, etc) between drives. I always like to check these moves by doing a right mouse click selecting properties on each folder separately to assure that an equal number of folders and files were copied before deleting them off of the smaller drive.

I emphasize again moving programs in this fashion will cause them to break. If you have large and seldom used applications you can uninstall them then using the installation process and media provided by the manufacturer then reinstall them choosing the external drive as the destination..

I hope this helps.

How to Speed up a Slow Mac


Apple Mac computers can also become slow and sluggish with time and use. So here I will show you four methods to speed up your old-slow-mac.

Method 1: Free up hard drive space
You might have stored many huge video files, thousands of photos and music tracks on our Mac computer. The popularity of using solid-state drives (SSDs) of Mac computers means considerably less capacity than traditional hard drives.

1. Find the large media files on your Mac, delete the unused videos, apps, photos, etc. Or you can move all of them to an external hard drive, and remove them from your Mac.

2. Empty your trash cans, say the user account's main trash can and the iPhoto/iMovie/Mail trash can.

3. Remove junk files from your old Mac, MacClean is the way to go. It helps removing Internet junk, user junk, system junk and application junk on your hard drive.http://www.imobie.com/macclean/

Method 2. Free up more RAM

Most Macs ship with between 4GB and 16GB of RAM. If your Mac has only 4GB or 8GB RAM, the system might be running low when launching programs or loading document.
Step 1. Open up Terminal: ~/Applications/Utilities.
Step 2. Enter the command: Purge, and tap the enter tab.
Step 3. Give your Mac a minute or two to complete the process.
Open up Activity Monitor to see the before and after results, you'll find the Free size increases in System Memory.

Method 3. Kill Unwanted login items

Step 1. Open up System Preferences, and click the Users & Groups.
Step 2. Click the Login Items tab, and you'll see a list of apps that open every time you turn on Mac.
Step 3. Select the login items you want to kill, and click the "-" button to remove them.

Method 4. Clean up your desktop

1. Delete the files you don't need any more, and empty the Trash.
2. Classified the files on your mac, and move them to some folders.
3.Name the folder so that you can easily find the one you need. Why Is My Mac So Slow and How to Fix It

Hello I have a HP Pavilion a1320N it is running very slow, so I want to do a full recovery back to the original state, but I did not create a set up disks when I bought it. How can I do a full recovery?


Use an external hard drive to backup your files and do the recovery... or better use the System Restore utility to at least restore it to an old backup date.

Maxtor 40gb disk diamond max plus8 stops. how to fix it to download files again


Is the hard drive full check it by going to my computer see the hard drive go to properties check that and then see how much space is available. I highly recommend a bigger hard drive especially if you download things quite a bit or move files to another source external USB flash drives work well or external drive will do the job. Check the space if it is fine and you have enough room then something in one of those files is stopping the drive from working. Reformat get all you can off of it then install the software Operating software again starting over fresh. I usually do my drives about 1 or twice a month reinstall software back to its original so that I do not get packed with junk I do not have to deal with or see. Also it is advisable to clean and defrag disks frequently some will tell you do not have to do this I can tell you since I have been doing for over 20 years now I just do not have problems with my computers.

I have a Maxtor One Touch 4 Mini 120GB External USB 2.0 Hard Drive, I've previously used it multiple times in the past, importing AND exporting data. For some reason though after using it on one computer...


try testing it in another computer. if you have the same problem. then there might be an issue with the drive.

to recover your data. unplug external drive from the computer and open the external hard drive case. remove the hard drive inside. with you computer off and disconnected from the wall open the case to your computer. look and see how the hard drive inside is connected in your computer and add the external the same way. you might need a cable to connect it. you can simply disconnect the cdrom and plug the hard drive instead. make sure the external hard drive is not touching any electronics inside the pc. now you can turn on the computer. give the computer a minute to detect the new drive and assign a drive letter. navigate to my computer and select the newly added hard drive. copy and paste all the data you want to save. after everything has been backed up format the external drive to clear any bugs that may be causing it to be recognised in its case.

when finished remove the hard drive, plug in the cdrom, close the case, plug back into the wall, and return external drive to its case.

Computer slowed down considerabily.


Check whether this is not a viral slow down. If not i suggest this

1. Give enough space to the hard drive.
2. Uninstall unused application for a long time and not needed anymore.
3. Install Ccleaner, this can clean your registry, cookies, and other junk files.
4. Defragment your drive. If you have enough space already.

Maxtor external hard drive takes all system resources from pc


John,


I hate to be the one to say this but the reason you are seeing the spike in CPU usage when you connect the hard drive is because the computer is trying to read the hard drive and the hard is beginning to go bad, I would recommend taking the hard drive to a repair shop mom and pop type they often have the best rates and ask them to recover the data.

Treat the hard drive as if it were an egg bumps can make it very difficult to recover your data that you need. That is if you have any..
I deal with hard drives for a living this happens to my laptop and quad core desktop all the time but i am always able to get the data if they bring it to me before it gets worse

DONT RUN THE HARD DRIVE time is critical...


I wish you the best of luck

Thank you
