    Hi Steve,



    Thanks for trying, but I gave up in frustration as it would not even
    reformat again.... took it back to the store where I bought it and
    exchanged it for a SATA HD (I'm going to buy a new computer shortly and
    I will install this other hard drive in it.



    This is the second large hard drive I have put in this one since March
    and I feel that there may be something about this computer and large
    hard drives....



    Thank you very much for trying to help me, I really do appreciate your time and effort.



    Regards,



    Ray

Don't worry about the size reported, 305GB is same as 320GB because 305GB = 305*1024*1024*1024 = 327491MB

Try deleting all partitions and reformatting (but do NOT choose Quick Format). Also try chkdisk /R C: to check for errors.

If you have an external hard drive, you can use software such as Acronis, to make a copy of that drive to save everything in an image. Get a new drive to install in place of the old one. Next you can use Acronis to copy the image on the external hard drive, back to the computer, onto the new hard disk in your computer.

Having trouble booting two Raid-0 discs on Asrock Z77 Ex4 UEFI


RAID implementations will vary from controller to controller, and even from bios to bios revision or version for the same controllers.
You should "image" the raid on the old board, then delete the raid on the old system.
In the new system, you need to treat these drives like they are new, blank hard disks. Any partitions will need to be removed, and the RAID created on the new board. Once this is done, you can use your partition imaging software to drop the data back onto the new RAID partition. Seagate I believe has imaging software available in Seatools, or you can use something like Acronis True Image or GHOST.

Ihave a sagate 320 inturnal HD that was installed on my desktop Comp. 1.5 years ago I am getting window massage to download all my data due to the HD failing. I am looking at the date code and it appears...


It sounds as if the SMART measurements on your Seagate 320GB hard drive are triggering the Windows message advising that the drive is failing.

You would be best advised to backup your data from this drive to a different drive or on to DVD media (depending on how much data is involved).

To test the failing Seagate disk, download a copy of Hiren's Boot CD which is a CD image file (.ISO) and must be burnt to a blank CD disc - then boot the computer with the failing disk from this CD - then select DOS Programs on the initial menu, then choose Hard Disk Tools and then HDAT2 - this is a tool which will let you try to recover any bad sectors on your boot disk.

On the Hard Disk Tools menu there is also a SMARTUDM - HDD S.M.A.R.T. viewer which will let you examine exactly which areas of the Seagate disk are giving the problem leading to the failure message.

Scansnap Scanner stops suddenly when scanning multiple pages and "hangs" for a little while, stating that it's scanning the same page, before giving an error message saying that it is offline. ...


I had this problem happen also and found that it was related to Acronis True Image Home 2011. When this program was uninstalled, the problem went away. I had even rebuilt the Windows 7-64 bit OS and the problem existed until Acronis was again removed.

320GB seagate freeagent, cant open some of the files.


If you have the ability and space then recover any files that you can

use the RUN option from the start menu

now type in "cmd" then ENTER

Now in the black box that appears type "chkdsk x: /f /r" and press ENTER

The "x" is the drive letter of the drive you wish to check

It may take some time but this will try fix any errors it comes acrosss and you may have to re-start to complete the task.

Now remove any more files that you can.

Use the RUN command again but this time type "compmgmt.msc"

Select Disk management

Make sure you freeagent is listed here.

Right click and select "Format"

Select NTFS as the file system

Do not tic any other boxes

Click OK

When it is done you can move the files back to this drive.

It is quite possible you hit the limits of the FAT32 file system which would have caused the types of error you saw.

How do I transfer data from my hard drive to added external drive


you can this many different ways. The most straightforward is to go to the drive and select "folder and file options" in the view menu and selct "show hidden files", that way when you copy and paste you will get every single file. The other way is to use a program such as Acronis Tru Image and use the clone option. I am assuming that you want an image of your C:\ drive.
