It sounds like you might have some bad sectors on the drive. If you do it might be time for a new one. Read this article for more info on how to check your drive.

    If there are bad sectors when you run chkdsk it'll try and correct it. However if it is a physical problem on the platters in the hard drive there is nothing you can do. In fact it may get worse. You can have the sectors marked as bad so they are not used but the problem can spread anway.



    It really is best to look for a new drive if there is physical damage to the platters.

Whenever back up or defrag laptop goes off


Three things you can try:
1. Disable automatic restart on System failure.2. Boot your laptop to safe mode and run a hard drive diagnostic program3. If the test fails, the replace your hard drive:a) Order the recovery disks for your laptop from the manufacturer of your laptop. Call them to order it.
b) Take your old hard drive to a big name electronics store such as best buy, and ask them to sell you a similar hard drive.
c) purchase a USB to SATA cable (sold in most electronic stores) to turn your old hard drive into an external drive that plugs into your laptop's USB so you can transfer your data.
d) Reinstall Windows using the recovery disks and after your done, plug in your old hard drive and transfer all your data.
Let me know if this helps.

Help transferring files from computer hard drive to La Cie


Well you can ONLY transfer/Move DATA as Programs and Documents & Settings and User Directories, cannot be shifted at all. So It is only the Files and Data that can be Moved off a drive. To gain space back, Right Click on the HDD, go to properties, in properties Under the general, tab the first window, select disk cleanup, remove everything in those boxes and after, that look under Tools tab, & do a disk defragment. This may get you space back. If not you may have to get a new bigger drive, and clone your old drive, then install the new drive and reinstall the Cloned image back onto the new drive?

Hangs on large installations or data transfer


THat means that there is something wrong with the drive already. I can transfer up to 100 Gig of a single file to large USB drives so generally transferring is not a problem. Try formatting the drive then transfer again. Or your USB port on your computer is only a USB 1.1 and not USB 2.0

Cannot transfer any files from my computer to my external hard


Did you install the drivers for the drive? Is it recognised in Windows as a device? If not, try reconnecting and Windows should prompt you to install the drivers, Assuming the drive is recognised by WIndows, then are a few causes for not transferring data. I've attached a link to Western Digital's FAQ regarding Data Transfer problems with your drive....

Several page of possible solutions are listed above.... however, you can refine the search if it is only happening when running specific apps or @ specific times. The answer you seek is located in this link. If you can provide more details on the type of file(s) you are trying to transfer and how, I'll refine the solution for you....
