Are you connecting this high-speed ("USB 2.0") device to a low-speed ("USB 1.1") USB-port on your computer? If so, and your computer has a "USB 2.0" port, connect your device to that port.
If not, then purchase an add-in PCI card for your computer, to add "USB 2.0" port(s).

Good morning, my system is too slow, i can i make it fast


Okay, Make sure you take note of the following
1. What is the capacity of your Hard Disk Drive e.g. 160 GB, 250GB etc
- Note How much space has been used and how much space is remaining
- If the used space exceeds 3 quarters (3/4) of the HDD capacity, then delete/move
some of the data from the Drive, to free up disk space. You can move your data onto any
removable drive like an external HDD or anything like that
2. How many software programs have been installed on your computer. Most of the installed programs run in the system background causing the computer to go slow. Consider uninstalling some of those that you do not normally use/run.

3. Then go to start, right-click on my computer and go to manage. Look for Disk Defragmenter and Click on Defrag.This also helps to speed up you computer.

4. Your computer could also get so slow because of viruses that replicate and fill up the RAM.
Restart your computer while pressing F8, this will let you boot into safe mode. Download and install any antimalwarebyte software and run a full system scan. Restart the computer afterwards, update your antivirus and run a full system. You will be good

How do I completely reset my external hard drive


1. You need to check how much free disk space is available on your laptop.
2. You need to check what duplicated files you have on both the laptop and the external hard drive and which is the latest version.
3. You need to decide to move the latest versions of the data files from the external hard drive to the laptop. This automatically delete these from the external hard drive. The older versions on the external hard drive can be deleted.
4. Now you need to check how much data is stored on your external hard drive.
5. If the amount of data stored on the external hard drive exceeds the available disk space on the laptop, then you cannot copy these files to the laptop.
6. If you have sufficient disk space on the laptop you can copy the data from the external hard drive to the laptop. I suggest you make a folder to copy this data to it.
You can now delete all the data from the external hard drive or you can format the external hard drive to make a clean external hard drive.

Reduced Hard Drive Capacity with Internal to External Kit


Problem can be tricky.. though i offer my two cents.

1. some BIOS have upper limit of hard disk capacity. check that out. try connecting IDE device to IDE connector in same comp and see if it is being detected properly.

2. seagate guys are true .. IDE to usb conversion can be tricky ... a lot depends on card convertor.

my advice would be if you have precious data on it ... first take a backup of it, if possible connecting the disk to nomal ide connector.

HARD DISK CAPACITY PROBLEM


When your hard disk capacity says 320, that does not mean 320 GB fo free space, Total capacity is 320 GB, from this space required for the partition table, boot sector, etc will be taken, Dont worry only the available free space will be shown.

This is not a problem, so dont worry.

Dont forget to rate me fixya
