External hard drive full, want to erase and start over.


While the external hard drive is connected to the computer, click on my computer. Find the icon related to your external hard drive. Use the right button of the mouse to bring up the context menu and select format. This will erase your hard drive. BE sure that you really want to lose all the files on the external harddrive. They would be difficult if not impossible to restore.

Connect the device.
Open 'My Computer'.
Double-click the icon for the device, to "open" it.
Click on a file/folder that you wish to delete.
Hold down the SHIFT key, and press the DELETE key.
Click 'Yes' to confirm that you really want to delete, bypassing the 'Recycle Bin'.

Where did all my disc space go?


Empty your "Recycle Bin" -- it's possible that the files have just "moved" from their original location, and have _not_ really been "deleted".

Or, right-mouse click on "My Computer", and choose "Manage". Click through "Disk Management (local)", and you'll be able to "delete" the partition(s) on the drive, and then "create" a "new" partition, which, of course, will be 100% "empty".

Just because you transferred it to your external hard drive. You will still have the files on your internal HD. You will need to delete the files off your internal HD and they will still be on your External HD. I had to do this with mine and other clients.

Storage capacity wrong


There may be a hidden file on the storage stick. To check this goto

start -> control panel -> folder options -> view -> and under the advanced settings click show hidden folders and files.

Then open up your usb stick and check if it has hidden files, delete them all, and then try your procedure again.

It seems that you will lose your files. These file already
infected with virus, and corrupted it. There's no other
way but to reformat your smartdisk.

AUTOMATIC BACKUP TO EXTERNAL HARD DRIVE (FIRELITE)


The first thing that comes to mind is the Firelite has become full and can not accept any more backup data.
Delete the data on the Firelite and try running your backup again. If it works then that was the problem.
The backup software should have a configuration setting somewhere that allows it to automatically delete older data and keep it from filling up.
