There is not enough space to do a backup. Is it possible to completely wipe the hard drive and start over?


Sure but you'll lose all your programs, files and documents, etc. Unless you are using W10, your best bet is to buy a new drive ($20-50) rather than wipe and reformat the existing one. You don't say how old it is but you could do that, just to have the current hard drive fail later.

1. Get the new HDD and use free software to "clone" the old hard drive to the new.
2. Or start over, install the OS - (W7 recommended) then use the File & transfer settings to move - only your documents and files, not your programs - to the new HDD. You'd need to reinstall any other programs you have on the old drive.

Here's a great link - don't be intimidated - if you print out the directions and follow them (or get a friend to help) it's not that difficult.

Where can I get a service manual or owners manual for the above computer?


Unfortunately you won't find a manual that will tell you how to do that. Cloning software is full of pitfalls. Your best bet is to take it to a technician who knows what they are doing.

SSD are also full of pitfalls. not sure if they fixed the part that didn't allow sections to be over written or defragged.

How can I conform that NTI is working? I can't see changes.


I presume that you are referring to a program produced by NTI, probably NTI Echo, which is a backup program. If so, then be aware that as it is a backup program, it will not delete data from your hard drive but, instead, make a second copy of it (thus the term backup). If what you want to do is use the drive for additional storage so as to free up space on your primary hard drive, then you do not need to use any software whatsoever. Just move the data from the C: drive to the new external hard drive and make it happen.



One suggestion, however: make sure to use directories (aka folders) to organize the files that you move to the external drive. The reason being that the root directory (such as C: or D:) has a limited amount of storage capacity, so just dumping files into the root will cause the hard drive to be "full" despite having plenty of storage capacity remaining. Besides, it will be easier to find the data that you desire if you have it more appropriately organized. ;-)

ASUS Notebook K52F/K62F Has 2 hard drives os(c:)1.1GB free of 74.5GB Data(D:)179GB free of 208GB Can I free more space in c drive by transferring it to D drive? If so how is this easy to do?


You can move your documents and data but not program or system files.
Select drive D:
Make a directory/folder called copies.
Go to My Documents in C: and select which ones you wish to move. With the right mouse button select Cut.
Go to the folder you made in D: and right click selecting Paste.
You can use that routine for all files you want to move.

How do usb external drives work


If you are comparing the USB drive to an internal drive, generally the USB drive is slower due to the USB connection not moving data as quickly as a internal hard drive which has a more direct connection to the motherboard. USB 3.0 is a significant upgrade over USB 2.0 in that it can handle higher data traffic.

1 TB is quite large.

I want to take some programmes my hard drive and use them in my external hard drive.


There are essentially two types of data that are written to a harddrive.
1. Programs (such as Microsoft Excel) 2. Data that are created by the Programs (XLS files)
In order to "move" PROGRAMS, they have to be first uninstalled from the original harddrive; then reinstalled onto your external harddrive.
In order to move DATA, simply do a copy and paste from the original drive to the new drive.

If you are running your computer under ntfs should your external harddrive be formatted the same instead of fats32. If it does can I move my back up from the external hard drive and move it back after...


The external hard drive can remain formatted as FAT32. NTFS and FAT32 are the file systems used by the individual disk drives, and do not effect the data being read or written (i.e., you can transfer data between the two with no worries about compatibility). There ARE differences, however, and many would suggest using NTFS to avoid some limitations with FAT32. For example, FAT32 drives have problems with individual files over 4GB. Formatting in NTFS is definitely recommended for people storing large files like video and other media files.
Yes, you can move any data you have off of your external hard drive (to your system hard drive or another external you use temporarily), format your external hard drive with NTFS, and then transfer your backups and other data back to your newly formatted external drive.
You can also convert the drive to NTFS; but I recommend backing up the data first anyway in case of (rare) problem during conversion. Here is a link that has directions for both scenarios (scroll down for conversion info) for Windows XP. http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/setup/tips/advanced/ntfs.mspx
The process to convert is similar for Vista and 7; here are the instructions from MS: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Convert-a-hard-disk-or-partition-to-NTFS-format
