How to move/copy user files to external hard disc (wall or usb powered) so that productivity applications default-save to the external hard disc (virtual drive) folder via ...


When you connect an USB drive to a Windows machine, or a Mac the drive is shown. On a Windows machine in the explorer with a new drive letter, like D: or E: on a Mac it is on the desktop with a name.
Then you can access it as any other drive. But if you are using program's like Office, you have to tell the software what drive and what folder is the default folder to save your data.

In explorer and on the Mac with finder, you also can move files around to any folder you want. On the internal drive or to the external drive.

IMac won't read Imation 160GB Apollo 2.5


Mac's won't read windows format disc, even if it's capable of reading the files wich I believe Newer Mac Operating Systems CAN DO, it can not read the file SYSTEM used to place them on the disc. You need a third computer. Put the files on a nother computer or two if you need the room or on another media or pocket drive. Use a program that VERIFIES the were moved without errors while copying them, the use the Mac to format the now empty disc drive and download Mac Pooler, or File Stuffer, and copy the files back onto the disc. Now the Mac will be able to read the drive they're on.

External keeps telling me not responding


Assuming your talking about an "external" storage device, such as a hard-drive over a USB connection... If the device isn't responding, and ASSUMING it doesn't need external power, and "should" operate over USB (most do)... then it's damaged. If it needed to be formatted, etc..you would get a different message. If it's locking up the computer, and not responding..it's simply bad and needs to be returned. Sorry :-(

I have a smartdisk usbflb100 external hard drive, but can't locate the usb cable or the power supply. is it worth trying to find replacements, or should i just move on? i intend to use it as a back up...


You can open the enclosure, and extract the disk-drive, and then attach it as a "slave" disk-drive into any desktop computer, probably just long-enough to copy the less-than-100GB onto your 'C:' drive. Then, buy a new 500GB or 1000GB or 2000GB external drive, for under $100,
and backup to it.

Or, you could buy an "empty" enclosure (with a power-supply and a cable), and "transplant" the disk-drive into that new enclosure.

Yes, any external storage device should be used as a "backup" device,
i.e., ALWAYS create an ADDITIONAL copy of your important files,
rather than INCORRECTLY using the device as the ONLY location for your files.

My Hard drive has only 6% space left on it.Can i connect external Hard drive to it?


> can I connect an external hard-drive to it?

Probably.

However, an external hard-drive should _ONLY_ be used to make an _ADDITIONAL_ copy of your important files. It should _NOT_ be used to store the _ONLY_ copy of some files -- if/when the drive fails, the _ONLY_ copy of those files will be _GONE_. Not good!

Instead, it's time to purchase an additional "internal" disk-drive, which will be _NEWER_ and _LARGER_ and _WARRANTIED_ and to use software to "clone" your old hard-drive onto your new hard-drive.

Then, disconnect the old, out-of-warranty, disk-drive, and boot Windows from the new disk-drive.

Then, purchase an EMPTY disk-drive enclosure, for about $30,
install your old disk-drive into the enclosure, to build your own external storage device. Once you're satisfied that your new "clone" disk-drive is working 100% correctly, delete all the files from the OLD disk-drive, and then make a backup of your files onto the now-empty disk-drive.

My simple drive (simple tech) portable hard drive 250gb will no longer work. The red light appears but not the blue ready light.


I would be very concerned that the drive may be failing, and make copies of anything important.
Is the external drive full? Go to My Computer and right click on your external drive and click on properties and it will tell how much is free and used. 90% is very full. Check all your hard drives while you are at it.

You should go to the website of your hard drive maker and download a diagnostic utility to check the health of your hard drive. It will be on the website under support. This must be run from bootable floppy, bootable usb, or bootable cd.

I have a maxstore 3100 external hard drive that just clicks when I plug it in. It has worked well up until now. It is our picture storage drive. is there anything that can be done?


Your only option is a professional "Data Recovery Service".
They will disassemble the hard-drive, fix the bad parts,
just long enough to read all the files, and copy them to a brand-new hard-drive. Expensive!

I can't delete files from my 160 GB Simpletech hard drive and it is full, what should I do?


Do a "disk cleanup"
Click on [My Computer]
Right-click on the External drive (D?)
Select [Properties]
In the [General] tab, click on [Disk Cleanup]
It will "scan" your drive, but not remove anything... alow it to complete the scan.
Look at the recommended list that appears and accept its findings.
This should remove non-essential files and leave your data intact.

Burn some of your data, especially video content to DVD (make at least two copies) ... then remove the data from your external hard drive.
You may want to purchase another (larger) external drive. You can use two of them or move your data to the new one.
