INdex.dat causing bail-out of HDD Back-up

I am trying to take a back-up of my HDD using a Freecom 120BG External Hard Disk Drive. Model number: FHD-2 Pro.
When the device finds a index.dat file it stops updating my files on my external hard drive. Is there any way I can get around this problem?

Index.dat is not required, simply do not include it in your backup..windows will recreate the file automatically. It is created by the file indexing service for faster searches, etc.

several things and solutions you can do.
if it's just an external hdd you can rip it to bits and take the drive out and use it as an internal drive, or take it to pieces and get an external hdd caddy for the size of the drive (3.5" or 2.5") they are cheap enough to buy.

Transcend 500 GB External HDD is detected but doesnt show the data in it.


Your external HDD may be corrupted. Recover the data before you use it.

First things first: STOP using the external hard dive that you want to recover data from in case you may quite possibly ruin your chances of data recovery.

Then Recommend you have a try of Wondershare Data Recovery, a data recovery program with both Windows and Mac versions provided. It should help you. Get the related versions here,

Data Recovery Windows (for Windows)
Data Recovery Mac (for Apple Mac OS)

Remember - Do NOT try & write anything back to your hard drive until you can recover your data safely!

I have an external freecom 400gb hard drive


The chances are that you would have burnt the Power IC's, so there might not be any damage to the Hard Disk itself. you culd try buying a cheap External Enclosure at the closest IT store or moun the Hard drive on to a desktop computer. you should be able to retrive the data.

I have a Freecom 160gb USB 2.0 drive that I love. Recently I have been told that Disk-keeper would not defrag it as the drive needed a CHKDSK session run against it at boot time. I have two systems, 1: a...


Hi Again - managed to sort out my own problem by accident.
I was installing a new bit of kit and needed to access the BIOS. The reboot time came and I gave the three-fingered salute (CTRL +ALT + DEL), and lo and behold it went into the chkdsk routine! Then there was a delay whilst it took 2 hours to check the disk, but there were no errors.
As a matter of interest I then ran diskkeeper (without problem) and noticed the report was saying the MFT (Master File Table) file was way too small - an 98% capacity - and that I should increase it's limit. I did and ran the defrag again. I now have a very healthy external HDD that is as happy as me.
Hope this helps others.

Computer does not recognize simpletech


Assuming Windows, try the Device Manager and see if the (old) disk is listed there in the disk drives section.
If so, right-click it and select Uninstall. (do this while the new driver is disconnected)

That should force Windows to recognize and reinstall the new drive when you plug it again.

For other causes check out the external hard disk problems.

BURNED CKT


If it is the USB adapter that is part of the enclosure, (not the disk itself) you can transfer the HDD that is inside this enclosure into a generic external HDD enclosure. either that or you can use an external HDD adapter to access the data on a disk (like Magic Bridge), this is and adapter without the enclosure, and is fairly handy if you need to get data from HDD in this way.. or to Clone disks
