Remove the plastic casing. peel the foil back. slowly remove the "usb card front section" from the "hard drive section".
purchase a "FREE AGENT GOFLEX UPGRADE CABLE - USB 3.0...MADE BY SEAGATE" (about $20 at BestBuy). plug it ino the hard drive section, plug the other end into you computer

Assuming the harddrive is working, plug it in and click start and my computer( or computer if you are running vista or 7) and then in this window click the name of the harddrive. Then drag and drop?

If you used 3rd party software to back up your data you will need to install that first and run the recovery option

Unlock hp notebook, running windows 10


without password, sorry not going to happen! All You can do is set your notebook back to factory settings! If there is anything on it that You Want to save, you will have to either, hook your hard drive to another computer to retrieve your stuff, or after you set it back to factory, use a recovery software, "Recuva" is a good one, but when you recover it put it on another drive, or usb storge! because if you don't you will copy over your stuff making it impossible to recover in one piece.

Kyocera presto phone was dropped fully charged but now wont turn on how can i retrieve photos and contacts


Without being able to power the phone on you still may be able to retrieve your pics and stuff if it has a removable micro SD card and a SIM card. The SIM card usually holds the contact info and the SD will hold most of your other stuff.

Yes, it's fixable, no , it's not worth it - it will cost you to fix it almost as a new pc. To recover your files just take the hard disk out and put it in a external enclosure  - around $25 - and plug it in in another pc.You will end up with an external disk, just wipe all Windows related stuff and use it as a backup.

My nokia n95 screen cracked and I cannot see anything to download important phone numbers and stuff off of the phone. Can you help


hello,
in order for you to be able to retrieve the numbers and datas from the phone, you have to replace the screen first.

if that is done then you can retrieve all datas from the phone.

the other option is for you to connect the phone with a usb cable to a computer, once it reads it, you can access the whole files and datas on the phone from there.

take care.

Sounds like the Hard Drive has gone on you. With the proper memory retrieving software one can take the HD out and get everything off of it. I would say your power supply has burned out but you said the fan runs so if it were your Power Supply then the fan would not run. I would either get on a friend's computer and search for tools or software that will allow you to retrieve your memory or a local repair shop should have all that is needed to get your HD's info.

Dont want to format my flash drive


Sounds like all the connections are not . . connecting.

If the computer recognized the device but can't get the directory structure, it will ASSUME it's not formatted and suggest a format.

Check the connections to be shure the drive is fully inserted in the USB port, and that the connector is fully extended, and free of any obstacles.

Hope this helps.
