Question about SimpleTech SimpleDrive Portable USB 2.0 80GB 5400rpm 480Mbps USB 2.0 USB 2.0 External (STIUSB2580FT) Hard Drive
Using Windows Vista; IE
I have a SimpleTech SimpleDrive External Hard Drive. The contents are zipped. I have located a folder (with 10 files in it....WordDocs) that I would like to retrieve.
I can find a way to UnZip the entire zipped file (with over 2000 items in it) by clicking on UnZip All. I tried using that to unzip my WordDoc folder but can't.
How do I retrieve (unzip) one folder, with 10 files in it?

I feel the problem can be something else as well.
The message "Photo Gallery can't open this picture because it might have been deleted or is in a location that is not available" can be because the Photo Gallery program that you use to view pictures in your computer.
First, try this, right click on the picture and click on "Open With". This will give you a list of all programs.
Here, you can select "Windows Picture and Fax Viewer" and place a check in the check box below that says "Always use this Program.." and click OK. See if this works.
I would also like to know if you are able to open other files on this drive except picture files.
Also, the document that you are trying to open, what's the file type for this document.
You can try one more thing that will help us to isolate the issue.
Please note the next step we are going to do is just a diagnostic step and we will revert back to the original settings after this step.
If not, then try the fixes provided by other friends above.
Even if it works after MSCONFIG, that will show that there is some other program/spyware creating this problem and in that case try uninstalling any recent programs you installed and Run the complete virus and spyware scan.
Please let know if you need any further help.

It could be that it's internal power supply burnt out,
in which case the drive itself could still be fine.
Try opening up the external case, and removing the drive.
Once you do, plug it in to your computer directly using its SATA cables, and see if that works.
Hope I helped,

You probably have to initialize and/or format the drive.
Right click my computer and click Manage (assuming windows xp)
Go to disk management
See if you see the drive listed somewhere there. Should show approximately 950gb disk drive
If so right click that drive listed and choose either format, or create partition.
If you create the parttiion, make sure to click quick format, otherwise it will take a long time.
Hope this helps
