If the driver make a click sound chances are that drive is dead, maybe the heads parks down in a zone not allowed to, etc. You can follow this procedure to try to recover some data in this drive

Around 4 gb ?
In the Microsoft Windows operating system, you can copy and paste 5 GB files as long as you have enough disk drive space.

The disk drive to which you're pasting the file must be formatted using the New Technology File System (NTFS), which supports the copying and pasting of very large files.

Purchase a large capacity USB external hard disk drive from a reputable vendor.
Make sure that the hard disk drive is at least 100 GB.

Connect the external hard disk drive to a spare USB port in your computer. Wait for the Windows operating system to recognize the hard disk drive.

Double-click on the "Computer" icon on the Windows Desktop, after which a window will appear listing all of your disk drives. Establish the letter of the new hard disk drive you have just installed. For the purpose of this article, the drive letter is assumed to be "E."

Right-click on drive "E," click on "Format," change the file system to "NTFS," then click on the "Start" button. Wait for the process to complete.

Click on the 5 GB+ file to select it, then press "Ctrl" + "C" on your keyboard to copy the file to the Windows Clipboard.

Click on the "Computer" icon on the Windows Desktop, then double-click on the "E" drive. This will open the root folder of the hard disk drive in the same window.

Press "Ctrl" + "V" on your keyboard to paste the 5 GB+ file from the Windows Clipboard to the new hard disk drive. Wait for the process to complete, which will take several minutes.

When e-mailing or archiving huge files, it sometimes helps to cut them into smaller pieces.

A flash drive is basically an USB Hard drive. It is a very handy device once you have figured out to use it.

Flash drives come in different internal storage sizes, so it is best you buy one that suits your needs. What makes it even better, is the fact that it is a plug-n-play device, which means that you will not have to install any drivers.

If you do not know what the storage capacity of your flash drive is, follow these steps to determine the storage size.

Plug the flash drive into your Desktop/Notebook USB port.

6aac1fd.jpeg 626f603.jpg 244a6f8.jpg

  1. Double click on the My Computer icon on your desktop.
  2. Now you should see your flash drive listed as a hard drive.
  3. Right click on your flash drive.
  4. Choose the properties option.
  5. Go to the general tab.
Now you should be able to see clearly how much of the storage is used, and how much free space you still have left.

To use the flash drive as a storage device:

  1. Almost all flash drives are Plug and play, thus plug the flash drive into the USB port, wait for your computer to detect the flash drive.
  2. Once detected, open the drive by double clicking on it's icon in My computer.
  3. Now you just need to copy the files and paste it on the flash drive.
  4. Copy the file by right clicking on it, choose the copy option.
  5. Go to the flash drive and right click, choose the paste option.
  6. When you are done. remember to go to the "Safely Remove Hardware" icon situated at the bottom of the Window's tray. Click "Eject" or the "Remove the Hardware Safely" option when finished.
Remember, if the files you want to copy is larger than the internal storage capacity of the flash drive, the file will not copy.

Hope this can give you a rough idea how to use a flash drive!!

Kind regards

Hard disk not detected


You can't do very much, the damage is already done. The only thing you can do is to remove the hard disk from the case, put it in a pc and try to access it from there - most likely you will have to use a recovery soft to get some of your files back. Once that's done test the disk for faults using HDTune, the free version. If it reports errors, even small ones, then it's dying (or already dead) - junk it and buy a new one.

I can't transfer any files to my local disk from my desktop..?? i wonder whats wrong???


Too many reason why we can't transfer files from drive to drive or drive to other external drive.

* the folder or files infected by some virus and automatically stop in the middle of copying. All you have to do is choose MY COMPUTER>ORGANIZE>FOLDER AND SEARCH OPTION>CLICK SHOW HIDDEN FILES/FOLDERS/DRIVE. Now , all hidden virus or files are shown, choose the exact files you need to copy and paste.
* the hard drive are possible damaged or bad sectors infected. Try to make more partition drive and continue copy and paste procedure. We try this part to find the part of the drive not yet damaged by bad sectors.

Not Detected on PC


I found this on this site. in case you havent seen it. It worked for me. Try this:

When I disconnected my backup drive and plugged in a USB drive the other night, my Windows drive letters got all wonky. D: became G: became F: became H:, and a bunch of my shortcuts didn't work anymore.
But it's easy to reassign the drive letters of your choice to add-on disks in Windows. Microsoft says you should log on as an administrator, and from Administrative Tools in Control Panel:
Double-click Computer Management, and then click Disk Management in the left pane.
Right-click the drive, the partition, the logical drive, or the volume that you want to assign a drive letter to, and then click Change Drive Letter and Paths. Of course things can get wacky if the disk is in use - by your computer or another on the network - so proceed with caution, you drive alphabetizer, you.

Hard disk


first be sure the drive is a vaible drive.....meaning it should be in it;s originbal PC it came out of and able to boot up on the installed OS. If it can then you are in luck..... install the drive you want to copy to as a slave and use a program like DriveCopy or Norton Ghost to copy the entire drive.....or if you are just after select files, you can use the copy/paste method to the drive. By trying yo use the drive in a different PC it will not boot since it has the other PC's drivers on it =( If the drive will not detect in it's native machine then most likely the drive is lost (unless you pay to clean room recover the contents....spendy!) Let mem know if you need more help!
