Don't know why you might want to do this, but assuming the portable drive is equal to or bigger than your system drive (C:), I would recommend you check out Ghost software (not sure of name) but this will put you on it. With Ghost, you make a mirror image of an entire hard drive. I used it to make multiple copies of entire PC's for classroom use.. i.e. Load one PC with all the OS and program software, and then connect other drives to the "Master" one at a time, until I had a classroom full of identical systems. Had to pull the drives, but since yours is already external, connectivity would be the only issue. USB should work, I would think.

How do I use your Verbatim? Please give me instructions


From Verbatim "Installing your portable hard drive is extremely simple - just use the included mini-USB cable to connect your hard drive to any free USB port on your computer. On Windows computers, a new icon will appear in My Computer representing your hard drive. On Mac OS systems, your hard drive will appear on the desktop as a new disk."

Hi, I have just rebooted my PC, and find myself missing the driver to my Verbatim Hardrive 320 GB. Is it possible to download a new driver, so I again can watch all my pictures I have saved? Hope you can...


No driver is needed, it's just a basic USB external memory. If you get a message about a driver then the pc no longer recognizes it correctly, which means that it has failed.
Your only hope of maybe recovering some data out of it is to dismantle the unit, extract the actual hard disk from within and connect it directly in a desktop - access it from My Computer.

You have to partition your Verbatim Drive to work on a Mac. Go to Macintosh HD / Applications / Utilities / Disk Utility. When in Disk Utility select the 232.9 GB SAMSUNG HM250HI Media to the left.

Lacie 1tb external hard drive into ps3 is not regconised


I have the same issue, however with my verbatim 500g its ok. i believe it is because the lacie is a desktop external and therefore is compatable with windows xp and 7 alone.
Verbatim is a "portable" external hard drive which makes it compatible with several different systems. I would suggest returning it, I just formatted my old verbatim harddrive and set up mediaasharing. Through my router. You can actually route the lacie harddrive by going to my computer and right click the icon. Next go to share with; advanced settings and allow all. Then when you turn your ps3 on search for media servers... I would suggest to google media server for ps3 to get it all seet up. GOOD LUCK

I can´t see the portable hard drive unit in my pc


I don't know too much but I may be able to help. I started by closing all applications and then plugged the USB into the port. A few moments later a window opened and when I right clicked it allowed me to make a shortcut to the desktop. The Verbatim icon is now on the desktop and I can click it and it opens. I have Windows Vista and can also open the "computer" option and the hard drive is there - mine shows as drive "f". I hope this helps. I am a good user of the computer but a novice at installing, un-installing, etc.
