1 Answer

Running low on capacity

I have very little capacity remaining on my one touch1. Will I be losing anything by adding more data? Will it stop storing information when I reach capacity. Is there some method to select and delete unimporant data?

Explore/Open the drive via My Computer and delete the "unimportant data", empty your recycle bin, and you could defragment the drive when your done deleting if you like?

Hi, I have a freecom tough drive 640 gb which stopped working. it keeps showing msg that it has to be formatted, which I'm worried that if I do I will lose all the stored data. Please help. Thanks.


Formatting will erase the data. The drive itself may be failing. Hope you have a backup.
You can try connecting to a different computer to see if it will read it.

Photo software recovery


Hello,
Want photo recovery software to take your deleted or lost data back from the memory card of your Nokia mobile phone?
Ok! No worry! No matter whether you do have got data backups stored elsewhere to copy anything desired back, stop using this mobile phone to avoid losing more and then, search for data recovery software to recover deleted photos from Android phone memory card.
Always choose proper data recovery software according to your own conditions.
From now on, make phone data backups well all the time.

minis are a little hard, you can't just dump coolant in and know it's full. You have to burp the unit. Try checking it 3 days in a row and keep adding coolant until it doesn't need anymore. The fan will run after the car is shut off if it's running a little warm

Virtual Hard disk : does it mean i can create a VHD of 500gb on 320HDD and can put data more than 320gb? Is it possible? if it is then will i lose any data if my operating system goes bad?


Who told you that? No you cannot create a virtual hard drive with a storage capacity larger than that of the physical hard drive that contains it. And yes, you will lose any data stored on the hard drive if your physical drive is reformatted.

Can i do system recovery without losing my data


Generally, most "System Recovery" processes involve re-imaging the system from a stored backup image of the system. This process normally overwrites the entire HDD including your data. So before running a recovery, I'd backup anything important.

Red light in dashbord blinks on/off look like a red hose with a drip.


That's the oil pressure light. Take it to an auto parts store like Napa or AutoZone, and ask the staff to scan your car (they'll do it for free). That will diagnose the specific problem. Odds are that you're a little low on oil.

What is the Platinum content on a 3.5" platter


The hard drive is the component of the computer where data is stored. Each drive contains one or more platters or disks where data is stored on the magnetic surfaces. The amount of data that can be recorded on a given surface depends very much on the strength of the magnetic field generated by the surface layer.

Platinum enhanced magnetic alloy allows data to be stored at much higher densities.

Back in 1957 when IBM first introduced the hard disk, storing just 5 megabytes of data require fify disks, each measuring 24 inches in diameter. Sixty years later, a much smaller 3.5 inch disk drive is capable of storing over 500 gigabytes of data. An important process to achieving this remarkable increase in storage capacity is by adding platinum to the cobalt alloy to enhance its magnetic properties, allowing data to be stored at higher densities.

With so much digital content being created (at higher and higher definitions) and then shared online by millions of people over high speed broadband internet, the strong demand for higher capacity disk drives has resulted in more platinum being used in the manufacture of hard disks to enhance their storage capacity. The proportion of platinum in the magnetic alloy has gone up from less than 10 percent in 2002 to 35 percent in 2007.
