Tip

Prevent a virus attack no your computer through USB pen drive or Hard drive


There are lots of viruses available that gets distributed with the help of USB per drives or portable hard drives.

So here is a useful tip which can be kept handy to prevent them from infecting your System.

Do not double click to open a removable drive or the portable hard drive or pen drive. Always right click and select explore from my computer. This is because, the virus would have created Autorun scripts that will get executed when double clicked. The scripts infects your computer with the same virus.

Once the removable drive is opened by selecting explorer, Navigate to Tools > Folder Options > Views. Find the radio button to show hidden files and folders. and also uncheck the option "Hide extensions for known file types"

Now of you find some new unknown files in your removable disk, try deleting them permanently by pressing shift+DEL. If it fails, copy required files from your device and then format the drive.

Hopes this tip helps someone.

Drive not recognized under Vista Home Premium 64-bit


I have seen drives not recognized for a few reasons. Bad drives, drives not jumpered correctly or full-disk encryption was used on them. Here are my thoughts:
Try making sure that the drive is jumpered to Master. Should be a jumper on the back of the drive.
Make sure you did not encrypt the hard drive using full disk encryption.
I use an USB IDE drive enclosure when recovering customer's data using a Vista computer and have not had any issues other than the ones mentioned above.
Let us know if this helps or what you find out.

Lost data on hard drive and unable to connect


Unless you are willing to spend some big bucks on getting everything recovered and you have already tried all of the above steps everything on there is lost. I have gone through the same problem if you can't access it as a slave then you truly have lost all that was on there. If you buy a new hard drive consider a seagate. It is a little more cost wise but they have good life ratings and always try and back up files on dvd just in case.

I am trying to use a OneTouch 4 Mini to retrieve files from an old PC with Windows98 OS. The USB does not recognize the device.


windows 98 doesn't have support for usb drives, you need to install a driver for the onetouch.

looking at the support pages the requirements state windows xp or newer.

you can try contacting the support and ask for a driver for windows 98

I feel its unlikely they have made a driver for it, but you got noting to lose by asking.
