File size limit for Buffalo HD 250 GB Hard Drive backup


The file is too large meaning that the size of that SINGLE file is too large. Your hard disk is probably formatted to a FAT32 file system, this results in a maximum of 4gb PER FILE maximum transfer. What you could do is archive it into a few parts using winrar and then moving it onto the disk, and when you need the file just extract the archive. Your problem isn't the total free space, it's the size of that file chunk.

Hi, I have WD 1TB Elements SE. When I checked the usage space on the partition after I plug in the drive, it shows a total capacity as 1,000,200,990,720 bytes (931 GB) and it shows 921,753,505,792 bytes...


If you have a 32bit system, it is expected to have miscalculations, a 32 bits can only go up to 4Gb for calculations (that is, 2^32 = 4'294'967'296 bytes) a 64bit system can make calculations to 2^64 bytes this is also why you couldn't copy a file larger than 4Gb in a 32bit operating system...
So, if you are running a 32bit OS, you should expect a discrepancy for the total space of the Hard Drive and the amount it shows (that's the 93Gb you are missing as total capacity).
Another reason why it can show you incorrect calculations are damaged sectors on the hard drive it-self. These will present themselves either as occupied memory or missing memory.
So, you should expect some miss calculations and you can expect some damaged sectors on the hard disk (a external drive spins on and off too often, eventually damaging sectors... its a problem of physical drives).
In the end, your disk might be fragmented, so run a disk analysis and a defragmentation on the disk so it can recalculate.
A note: A disk is like a shelve, you put things where there is space, if you remove things, that space will be open, and if you want to put something there it has to be the exact size or small enough to fit there. This effect, when things are small enough leaves blank spaces unusable, consuming space on the hard drive and making the access of files slower, this is fragmentation. In order to expand your disk life expectancy you should run defragmentations...
To run a defragmentation, go to START, write "Disk Defragmenter", choose your disk and run and analysis and defragmentation.

MY HARD DISK TAKING SPACE 35 GB ONLY FOR OPERATING SYSTEM


Hello,

If you have windows 7, the size should be around 15 GB. More space can be taken up by updates and system restore points created by updates and software/driver installations. You can try running disk cleanup to see if this is the case or not.

The short answer to your question is "Yes" however, all information on the drive would be lost. As a work-around, store/move more information to the D: volume. Perhaps install any new software programs to D: rather than C:

221 GB Free on MyBook - Error states not enough space for backup


It may be due to the file system.  If formated as FAT32 files larger than 4gb may not transfer.  Try reformatting as NTFS to fix the problem.

Total size is not 80 GB IDE Hard Drive


Hi,

Two possible solutions but both calls for another software/utility.
1. Use FDISK but you should be booting and running in DOS mode;
2. the other is Partition Magic which runs under Windows environment.

The idea is to delete the existing partition (that shows only 31.50Gb) and thereafter re-partition to the full capacity of the drive. of course doing so would erase the contents. Further, a format after the re-partition is required.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
