If you examine the hard disk you should see on the labels the jumper positions for setting it to slave. You will then need to attach the slave disk to the power and data cables inside your friend's computer.

OK you harddrive is infected with Malware. This Malware creats shortcuts of each folder and Hide the all those your main folder.
You can scan your Hardrive with fully updated Anti Virus apllication .

To see all your original folder you can enable your Shown hidden File option from your Folder option--View--uncheck show hidden files and folder--and uncheck hide protected operating system files.

Here is the step to unhide your all files and folder in one go.

http://en.kioskea.net/download/download-11613-autorun-exterminator

Extract it --> Double-click on "AutorunExterminator" --> Plug your Hard drive now.

This will remove the autorun.inf files from your flash drive and also from drives.

Step 2:

Click on "Start" -->Run --> type cmd and click on OK.

Here I assume your flash drive letter as G:

Enter this command.

attrib -h -r -s /s /d g:\*.*

You can copy the above command --> Right-click in the Command Prompt and

paste it.

Note : Don't forget to replace the letter g with your flash drive letter.

Was using my 1TB and then all memory (pictures) dissapeared. Still shows memory used/available, just all the files are gone.


Those files are hidden folders.
For that connect it to computer then open my computer go to tools menu->folder option.
then click view tab enable "show hidden files and folders" and disable check box of "hide system files" then apply then you can see your files as hidden folder.
then open it then copy all files to local drive also scan computer and harddrive with updated antivirus because it (harddrive) is infected of virus.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Error code 36 when transferring photos to harddrive


According to Microsoft, error 36 is:

"ERROR_SHARING_BUFFER_EXCEEDED
36 (0x24) - Too many files opened for sharing."

There may be many causes for this. Do a virus scan and run the registry repair tool from this download link:

http://www.windows-error-repair.org/tools/regcuredownload.php

Run the tool, press the scan button and let the tool clean and fix your registry.

Good Luck!

The only problem about putting the hard drive into an external box and doing a scan is that most virus softwares move the infected files to the virus vault or virus chest. By doing so it may have moved some of the operating system files to the other machine. If you have the original operating system cd, I would recommend trying to do a restore of the lost files by inserting the operating system disk and allowing the machine to boot from the disk. Then it should pop up a window that asks if you want to do an install or repair. Click on repair and it should go through and replace the missing files with a new version. If you cannot make it work, you may have to put it back into the external drive case and try putting them in manually. I have on occasion seen some destructive viruses that will disable the hard drive when the infection is removed. In a worst case scenario, You might try putting the hard drive back into the external case then moving all possible files to the other machine. Then install the drive back into the original machine and try doing a clean install of the operating system and moving the files back afterwards.

Dropped hard disk


A dropped hard disk that makes clicking sounds when you plug it into a computer is dead. It would be cheaper to get a new one, and I doubt if you could get anyone to repair it.

Hardrive help!


Unfortunately this is a little like closing the gate after the horse has bolted. as there is a possibility that the files you copy onto the drive may be infected with the virus. however, It is usuall that External drives are not configured for use (as the application for the drive's use is varied) it is up to the user to partition and format the drive. if you are using win XP it sh a case of connecting the drive (the hardware should be detected) install drivers if neccesary. Then the Disk needs to be prepared, Right Click "MY Computer" and select MANAGE. This should take you to a management window. Select "Disk Management" Under "Storage" from the "tree" on the left of the window. You should now see on the top right a list of named partitions, and below you should see the partition maps of the drives connected to the system. your 100 GB disk should be shown here, as an unformatted unpartitioned disk, once this disk is selected you can partition it any way you like however most choose a single partition, once the disk is partitioned you need to format the partition, FAT32 is the most portable. once this is done the disk should now have a Drive letter, This can be changed if required. yould now be able to access the disk :) `
