Backed up once successfully but any subsequent tries it says 'no space left' on a 320GB Verbatim external hard-drive. Any ideas?


i would format the external dive and then back up the system hard drive on to it. save any necessary data or files onto CD first-- but if you have a back of the hard disk on this external, no need to keep more than one image copy of the computer hard disk drive. i had to format my external. i do not save anything that is of persoanl value on external drive. if i can i save up to 750M of persoanl data on several CDs

please send me 4 thumbs up

Unplugged my hhd by mistake and now it asking me for a format i have 18 gigs of data loaded in it please help

Is it an external HDD or internal?

In either case if it is formatted you can recover data by softwares like Recuva and Recover my files.

The files recovered are not in the same organized manner nor with same name

It is better if you try to plug it in to a different system/laptop

Maxtor 3200 200 gig not recognized

When your drive is in RAW format, the best thing you can do is try to recover the files and then get the hard drive replaced. I would recommend trying the trial version of this program:

If that doesn't work, let me know, and I'll see if I can come up with another way to solve the problem
