Question about Maxtor OneTouch II external hard drive 300GB 7,200 RPM - FireWire & USB (E04W300)
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?

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.
