Question about SimpleTech 100GB SimpleDrive portable USB - black Hard Drive

1 Answer

I have a SimpleTech Portable Drive (back-up)

How do I download just the new info that is on my computer? Everytime I go to update the portable it downloads EVERYTHING on my computer again and takes so long. I would like to be able to back-up my files on a regular basis but am having problems doing that as it takes hours each time.
Thanx
Richard

I assume you're using the StorageSync software. Go here to make sure you have the latest version:

Since I don't know what you're clicking, I can only tell you that you need to choose the "Incremental Backup" radio button at the bottom left of the Backup Window, then click the "Backup" button.

The BKF file is only a reference to allow the XP os to know what program opens which file. It doesn't contain photos or music or documents.

I made a mistake and reformatted my SimpleTech Signature mini portable hard drive without first downloading the software to my desktop first before formatting..??and now I do not have the software that...


I don't quite understand what you're trying to accomplish. Do you want to try and restore the data that was formatted on the Simpletech drive? If so, follow the link and get a software program called recuva http://www.filehippo.com/download_recuva/ It's freeware. If you can't get it with that then there's another software program that I use quite often called Easy Recovery Professional. It's not free, but it's saved me quite a bit of time recovering lost files that I forgot to back-up.

SimpleTech 80 GB Portable HD Won't Read


It sounds like a problem with the board inside the case,- the actual hard drive is probably OK. Opening the case will void any warranty but there may not be much left anyway. There should be 4 screws in the bottom of the drive,- front 2 may be hidden under a sticker. Try installing the drive in your new case or an empty drive bay inside your computer. I have had external hard drive cases fail before and the actual hard drive was ok.

SimpleTech 60GB usb hard drive.


switching hard drive requires a bit of acurracy.the machine should be able to detect the drive before you can even use a cd for it. So please check the IDE cables and fix the well, and make sure they do not have brakages. check for power in the drive if not the I am afraid the drive might be crushed
