Nomadesk by design stores copies of all files locally. It is not a 100% cloud-based solution.

How do I back up files on my PC with SimpleTech SimpleDrive Pininfarina 500GB External USB 2.0 Hard Drive - Onyx


Determine how much space you need. The first step in backing up your hard drive is to figure out how much space you will need to back up all of your files. You can do this in a couple of ways. Find out how large the hard drive is on your computer first to see if you can back up the whole thing. Click on "My Computer," right-click the "C" drive and select "Properties." This shows the approximate of your hard drive, how much space is actually taken, plus the space used by your operating system. If your hard drive is manageable (the space actually taken), back up the whole thing. Your second option is to create a file called "Backup" and copy all of your important files into it. Right-click on the folder once everything is copied over and choose "Properties" to find out the of the folder. This is how much space you will need to back up your important files only. Choose a backup method. Choose either an external hard drive, data disks (CDs, for example) or use an online backup service. There are advantages and disadvantages to all. An external drive is convenient because you can plug it into other computers and immediately transfer or copy files without needing the Internet or having to worry at all about security. However you have to carry the drive with you and always face the remote possibility that both your computer and the hard drive would break. Data disks provide the same advantages and disadvantages as external hard drives: portability, but the possibility of theft or breakage. You can also use an online backup service. These services range in price depending on the amount of storage. The advantage of an online service is that you can access your files from anywhere there is Internet, and it is generally cheaper, especially for small amounts of service. Also, you don't need to carry or store another piece of equipment. The disadvantage is your backup is stored on the service's external server, so security is a potential issue. Back up your files.
Once you have chosen your method of backup, do not forget the most important step: back up your files. For external media, go into "My Computer" and double-click the "C" drive to open it. Select all the files if backing up your entire hard drive, or select your "Backup" folder if just backing up your important files. Holding your "CTRL" key, drag your selected files to your back up source, either your external hard drive or data disk drive. Release your mouse button and "CTRL" key and allow the files to be copied onto your backup media. Hope this helps.

Can't find back-up folder


You might have to create a folder you can do this by right clicking in the backup destination drive selecting new folder and name it lets say Back Up 2012 for the excercise.

Determine how much space you need.

The first step in backing up your hard drive is to figure out how much space you will need to back up all of your files.


You can do this in a couple of ways.

Find out how large the hard drive is on your computer first to see if you can back up the whole thing. Click on "My Computer," right-click the "C" drive and select "Properties."


This shows the approximate size of your hard drive, how much space is actually taken, plus the space used by your operating system.


If your hard drive size is manageable (the space actually taken), back up the whole thing.

Your second option is to create a file called "Backup" and copy all of your important files into it.


Right-click on the folder once everything is copied over and choose "Properties" to find out the size of the folder.

This is how much space you will need to back up your important files only.


Choose a backup method.

Choose either an external hard drive, data disks (CDs, for example) or use an online backup service.



Plug the flash drive or the External Hard drive into your computer's rectangular-shaped USB drive.

Wait for Windows to recognize the system.


Windows operating systems use "plug and play" technology, which means that computer peripherals like USB flash drives can be recognized instantly by the system without further need for device configuration.


Open the drive on your computer.

Open the "My Computer" directory if using Windows XP or the "Computer" directory if using


Windows 7 or Vista. Locate the flash drive letter and icon under the section named "Devices with Removable Storage." Double-click the flash drive icon to open it.


Transfer files to the flash drive.

Click the "Restore" button in the top-right corner of the "Computer" or "My Computer" directory to shrink the window so that you can view your computer's desktop background.


Open the folders or locations of the files which you want to save to the flash drive.

Click and drag with your mouse each of the files and folders you want to save to the flash drive over to the empty space in the "My Computer" or "Computer" window.


Release the mouse button to let the files "drop."

Close the windows and directory locations when finished.


Save files directly onto the flash drive. From an open file (i.e. text, spreadsheet, image files. etc.), click the "File" menu and "Save as" option.


Select the "My Computer" or "Computer" directory in the drop-down menu at the top of the "Save As" box. Double-click the flash drive letter under the "Devices with Removable Storage" section.


Click the "Save" button to save the file onto the flash drive.

Close the windows and files when finished


Hope this helps.

How do I back up my computer with an iomega portable hard drive?


  • 1 ***** the size of files you need for taking the backup. Files having graphics, sound and videos occupy more space than a simple text file.


    2 Plan the future requirements and consider the space needed accordingly.


    3 Choose an external drive of 20 GB or above to store huge data backups.


    4 Get an external hard drive and connecting cables to attach the drive to your computer.


    5 Select the data you want for backup. Organize the data into folders and sub-folders for easy find. Financial data, digital photos and music can form priority data for backup.


    6 Connect the drive to your computer. Use the drag and drop options for taking the backup.


    7 Remove the drive after properly ejecting by right clicking on the task bar on the desktop.


    8 Keep the external drive away from the place where you have your computer when done. If your computer gets damaged due to any unforeseen reason, you will have your entire data safe in the external hard drive. It minimizes the risk of data loss.

    I have downloaded the files from my old computer to the Seagate hard drive. How do I transfer those files to the new computer?


    Copy, Paste. Just choose what files you want to copy over, and WHERE you want to store them.

    If I were you I would create a new folder on the desktop, right-click an open space, new folder.

    Then highlight all your old files, right-click, copy. Open the "new folder", right-click empty space, paste.

    Cannot transfer files that are greater than 4GB


    The lack of free space iis on your internal HD not the external. Whenever transferring files from one drive to another, you are acturally making a copy of the file to be transferred and sending the copy to the new drive. If your internal HD is nearly full, you can try to Cut and Paste the files to the external, or clear up more space on your internal b/4 tryiing to move the bigger files. Best of luck.

    Low capacity problem


    Hi,

    Mostly this is affected by match used to construct the drive geometry. The narrative below is courtesy Tiger Direct of Canada and is their copyrighted content.

    When we ask our customers if an Answer is satisfactory, the requested rating is four diamonds for a thorough answer. Hopefully, you will find the below content achieves that mark.
    1. The way size is calculated and displayed.
    2. Any "Partitions" on the disk will change the total in a specific partition.
    3. Hidden files and folders decrease available space.
    4. Compression increases the apparent size, but not the physical size.
    5. Drives larger than the OS or Drivers natively supports.
    hddsizescreen.jpgFirst, the definition of a megabytes (or gigabytes) is a unit of data storage capacity measured in 1,048,576 bytes (or 1024KB). The larger the numbers, the more apparent the size difference will be when listing the size as megabytes (or gigabytes) versus bytes. Actually, both numbers are correct. The noticeable difference is due to the 1024KB definition of a megabyte. This is why a 95.3GB hard drive can also be listed as having 102 billion bytes of total space. Just think of it as "round off" In the screen shot at right: The first number is the total number of bytes, the second number is based on the number of megabytes or gigabytes.
    Second, some computers have a non-DOS hard drive partition that is used for features such as Save to Disk, Hibernation, or Recovery. This partition is not normally reported by the operating system, although it can be viewed using a disk partition utility. This is very common on desktops and laptops. NOTE: Partition information will be created or formatted automatically during initial system setup and a system recovery.
    Third, by default, all system files are hidden and cannot be seen. This may adversely affect the reporting of available hard drive space. You can set your Folder Options so you view system and hidden files and folders, but do be careful as changes to system files can adversely affect your system.
    Fourth, if you turn on Compression for a drive, it will increase reported free space and used space, but since compression is based upon the actual contents, this number is not fixed, but will change as files are added or changed.
    Fifth, older operating systems did not support some of today's larger drives, so the total space reported may be much smaller than the drive specifications.
    It is also worth noting that bad sectors are corrected by your operating system and can change the total drive space, free space, or used space as well.
    So as long as a drive is reporting a value approximately close to the specification value, you can be comfortable that you received the right drive and that you are getting to correct data storage. Of course, tuning of your drive's partitions and options can yield optimal values, but this is not something for the average user to explore.
