Data Storage on Laptop (IBM/Lenovo)

Hello, I run a desktop & laptop. The desktop has 40GB storage, it has much more data stored and about 20GB free), the Laptop has only a small amount of data and a 60GB hard disk, but only has 4GB free. How can I get the lost space back? I have already un-installed several programs and deleted lots of data, but I still have lost of GB space unused that I cannot access. Please can someone help, I regularly defrag and clean my hard disks. thanks, Xavier

While not cheap, Spinrite from GRC was my choice for HD problems of most kinds while I was still doing service.
It isn't cheap but it can perform seeming miracles on problems such as yours.

When laptop says no bootable device


re-seat hard drive and check settings for boot devices in bios.
run ibm diagnostics and see if it is seeing the hard drive . if it is run the hard drive tests if they pass then you probably have misconfigured the bios settings somehow. if the hard drive is not found or fails the tests then im afraid your going to have to look in to an exspensive data reclamation service, your best bet there is go to the hard drive manufacturer or even ibm itself.

Retriving Data from Storejet and uploading to new computor


If the hard drive in the IBM laptop is OK then remove the hard drive from this laptop. Connect this hard drive to an USB hard drive adapter then connect the USB adapter with the hard drive into the USB port on the Vaio laptop. The Vaio laptop should see it as an external storage device (if the hard drive is OK). You can then open the various folders and files then copy these to the Vaio laptop

I have an old 40gig ibm apple hd


You wouldn't be able to use it as a primary drive in a laptop, you could in a desktop, but you would require and IDE to SATA adapter. But even then, I still wouldn't bother because the drive would be too slow.

You would be able to use it as external storage via the means of an IDE to USB cable. It still wouldn't be as quick at accessing data as today's modern external storage devices, so again that's why I wouldn't bother. But you could if you really wanted to.

Hello jazzmania67
The best solution in this case is to use a recovery tool to recover and store your data on another drive
Free Recuva works fine : http://download.cnet.com/Recuva/3000-2242_4-10753287.html
Do not try to recover all at once but each category at a time , documents , pictures , music ...etc...
If it fails , try this one . It's not free but very efficient : Tenorshare Data Recovery. It can recover data after deeply scanning your hard drive to look for lost data due to unwanted erasing , system sabotage, virus corrupted partitions,drives crash, physical damage,ect.. http://www.any-data-recovery.com/product/index.htm
If you still don't have success , you will have to go to a recovery office but let's hope not because it will cost you a lot of money .

Free data storage on device is low.


You need to free some space for more storage. Delete some items eg music, pics, videos, ringtones etc that are unnecessarily used. The store space is running low

Mother board problem, data retrieval


If you know someone who can disassembly your laptop (for safety refer to a laptop specialist) to remove the storage device hard drive inside your laptop. You can retrieve all your data, you can use an usb external case wherein you can insert your laptop hard drive on it and it will work as your storage device of all your computer files, pretty cool because you can use that storage case in any laptop because of it's usb cable connector function.

I HAVE LAPTOP IBM THINKPAD T30 AND I WANT TO CONNECT HARD DISK 80GB OR MORE


  • Supported HDD thickness:
    • 12.5 mm for systems without the touch pad
    • 9.5mm for systems with the touch pad
  • Standard 20GB, 40GB, 60GB HDD sizes.
    Note:
    • The 60GB HDD orderable as marketing option part number 08K9688 has a height of 12.5mm and will not fit in the HDD slot of the systems with the touch pad installed. For these systems, it is only supported via the ThinkPad 2nd HDD Adapter for the Ultrabay 2000.
    • The 60GB HDD orderable as replacement service part number 08K9833 is 9.5mm.
  • Supports one additional HDD which can be used concurrently to offer expanded storage utilizing the Ultrabay 2000
  • S.M.A.R.T technology to issue an alert if a hardware failure is pending
  • ATA Bus Interface
  • 4200 or 5400 rpm
  • Although you can upgrade the HDD, it is not designed to be removed and reinserted on a regular basis. Repeated and frequent removal, for purposes other than to upgrade for greater capacity, can cause damage to the system. The Ultrabay 2000 HDD adapter is designed to provide this flexibility with a second HDD in the Ultrabay 2000 IBM says. I say if the OS recognises it and so does the BIOS, you're good. good luck, hope this helps.-jmattes p.s. I found this info on: http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-42218.html
