Where to find the reset button on my packard bell pc hard drive




Click on the "Start" button and input "Recovery" into the search box. Click on "Recovery Manager."


Click on the "Advanced Options" button when the Windows recovery manager appears. Choose the "System Recovery" option from the list and click on "Next."

Click "No" to decline using the Microsoft system restore and click "Next." Note that HP computers have their own restore system.

Click on "Back up your files first (recommended)." Click on "Next." Follow the instructions given to you by the recovery manager for backing up your files.

This is your opportunity to back up any important or original files before you reset the HP computer to its original settings.

Save these files to removable storage devices such as DVD disks, CD disks, alternative hard drives (that you are not performing a system reset on) or flash drives.

Click on "Next" when the screen reads "Recover without backing up your files." Note that after you proceed with this step, you will lose any and all information on your Hard Drive that you did not back up.

Restart your computer after it has finished the recovery procedure. Visit the HP Support and drivers website and click on the option that says "Download drivers and software (and firmware)." Enter your computer model number (find this on the front of your tower) and press "Enter."

Download the most recent drivers and save them on your desktop. Double-click the driver package and follow the on-screen instructions to install the drivers.

Insert your removable storage device that contains the files that you backed up. Copy the files to the appropriate places on your hard drive.

hope this helps

I sent my music files pics etc to my book n no memory came off my hard drive


hello,
i'm assuming your using a windows based computer and if so , when you transfer files from one drive to another, the files are copied as opposed moving them. This is usually done so you have your originals and now your back ups. If you want them not to be on your original drive try cut and paste options.
1This can be done by right clicking on the file or folder and select "send to "option.
2 next select which drive you want to move it to.
Hope this helps

I would suggest copying the data to your My Book as an interim step before copying to the second drive. Copying directly from one removable media device to another will necessarily move the data to your computer temporarily anyway, so there is no disadvantage to simply using your My Book as a middleman in the process.

I just bought 2TB my book essential, I thought it would provide an extra drive for my Dell PC, but it just seems to be for storage, can it be used like an additional drive. For example keep a file on it...


The "best" usage for an external disk-drive is to make one more "copy" of all your important files & E-mail & music.

So, if your computer "dies", you still have one copy of your files on the MyBook.
Fix or replace your computer, and copy the files from the MyBook onto the repaired/new computer.

Or, if your MyBook "dies", you still have one copy of your files on your 'C:' drive,
and you can fix/replace your MyBook, and copy your files onto the "revived" MyBook.

How do you remove fragmentation (defrag) a hard drive without using a defrag tool? Can you simply copy all files to a back up drive, reformat the fragmented drive and restore the files?


when files are written to the hard drive they start from the center outwards...as the platter fills up, the read/write heads find the next empty spot. when a file is deleted (document, photo, mp3, or even a temp file used by the system) the r/w head starts writing a new file in the FIRST empty spot it finds....rather than one continuous stream of data.

Theoretically, copying files from a fragmented drive to a freshly formated drive would move them in an orderly fashion without fragmenting.

On the other hand, if you were to use a clone utility (like norton ghost or acronis) then you would copy everything of the original drive bit by bit in its original position, fragments and all.

interesting question to be sure....I will have to experiment with this.
