Open "My Computer".
Right-click the icon for the Passport.
Choose 'Format'.
Choose 'Quick-format'.
In a very-few seconds, _ALL_ the files on the Passport will be deleted, and the Passport will be 100% "empty".

Then, do a backup from your 'C:' drive to your Passport.

Hello I have an ascer aspire ast 180 ea381b with 160 gb of memory and it is always telling me that I am low on disk space. the C drive has 71.9 GB but only 4.3 M free. The D driver has 71.6 GB and 68.4...


4.3 GB is very less for current day windows versions (you have not specified what version of windows is installed in your computer). Please move some of your files like music, movies, photographs and documents to the D drive and free up the C drive. Ensure you free up atleast 15 GB in your C drive. Also try removing / uninstalling unwanted programs installed in your computer.

We briefly mentioned using junk data to overwrite the iPhone's flash as a last-ditch method of securely clearing off your user data yesterday, and although we were half-joking, that's more or less your only option until Apple provides a proper secure erase feature. Security researcher Rich Mogull has helpfully laid out the steps for you, and they're basically what you'd expect: restore your iPhone, don't sync any personal data to it, and then manually transfer three different playlists large enough to fill the flash. Essentially you're doing a manual three-pass overwrite, which is pretty much exactly the long and tedious process it sounds like -- but we wouldn't dream of selling or giving away our iPhones (or any other phone with personal data on it) without struggling through it.

My pen drive moser bear data 4 GB recover please


Hello

My apologies if this message finds you long after posting this problem , but I am currently working through a backlog of problems that never got answered and hopefully this info can still be of use if not now possibly in future.

Please download Disc Digger HERE. This is a free tool you can use that works very well and there is no installation required, just run the program once you downloaded it.

Once you have connected the memory disk / hdd to the computer , run the program.

On the program , select the dig deep option for accidentally deleted files or dig deeper for a formatted drive. Then select the disk you want to do the recovery on and run the program.

The data will be displayed and you can recover it from there. This will only work if the card has not been used since the data was lost. Save the files to a location on the computer hard drive and not back to the disk it is recovering from as this will overwrite the other pictures that still needs to be recovered.

Some of the properties of the files may become lost in the recovery but the pictures should be fine.

You will also only be able to recover certain file types using this method.

Feel free to ask if you need more assistance.

Kind Regards
Andrea

Solution to recover files after formatting


There is a solution to recover formatted, deleted data recovery through a software called "Ontrack Easy Recovery" from this you can recover in RAW format also. Make sure after deleting or formatting the drive don't install any softwares or write other data. This will overwrites the traces of your old data. So you can't get back data completly.

Hope this will be usefull...

Thanks & Regards
