How do i transfer data from hard drive if it is vroken

Hi, if you can hear the drive spinning up but then making a clicking noise this means the heads have failed, this would need to be opened up (ideally in a clean room), if the platters are okay you can replace the heads... but if your data is precious to you I would reccomend sending it to a data recovery company Digital Recovery ( are fairly good.

Whenever back up or defrag laptop goes off

Three things you can try:
1. Disable automatic restart on System failure.2. Boot your laptop to safe mode and run a hard drive diagnostic program3. If the test fails, the replace your hard drive:a) Order the recovery disks for your laptop from the manufacturer of your laptop. Call them to order it.
b) Take your old hard drive to a big name electronics store such as best buy, and ask them to sell you a similar hard drive.
c) purchase a USB to SATA cable (sold in most electronic stores) to turn your old hard drive into an external drive that plugs into your laptop's USB so you can transfer your data.
d) Reinstall Windows using the recovery disks and after your done, plug in your old hard drive and transfer all your data.
Let me know if this helps.

Just installed brand new hard drive, 500 GBs. Upsized from 40 GB. Could there be a problem in set-up using XP Home. Keeps saying read disc error occured. Says Clear/ Alt/ Delete to restart, not working.

There might be a problem with the hard disk. You should hook the drive up to another computer and run a hard disk diagnostic test on the drive, such as Data Lifeguard Diagnostics by Western Digital to make sure that the drive is okay, even if it is brand new.

Forgotten family setting password for black xbox 360

  • If you enter the passcode incorrectly, you get the option to reset the pass code if you set it up with a security question, and remember the answer.
  • If that isn't an option, you can try calling the Xbox people (1-800-4-MY-XBOX [this is the US number]), and they will be able to help you. (RECOMMENDED)
  • If you don't feel like dealing with them, you can back up all the data, and just reformat the drive. Just so you know, this will ERASE the hard drive, so you'll have to back it up beforehand. To do this, go through the following steps:
  1. If you have two hard drives in it (which is only possibly with the 250 GB slim), I'd recommend removing the extra (250 GB) one before continuing, so no accidental data deletion occurs.
  2. Transfer all the data to a thumb drive (16 GB limitation). Plug in the thumb drive, and it should ask if it can reformat it. Say yes. Then, go to My Xbox, System Settings, Memory, then press Y for Device Options. (If you have two hard drives in the Xbox, you'll want to highlight the permanent one). Then choose Transfer Content, and pick your thumb drive as the destination.
  3. Next, get the Console Serial Number. Go to My Xbox, System Settings, Console Settings, and then System Info. Write down the Console Serial number, which should be at the top.
  4. Finally, go to My Xbox, System Settings, Memory, and press Y for Device Options again, highlighting the drive you backed up earlier. Select Format, and say Yes. This will erase everything on the hard drive, leaving you free to set it up from the beginning all over again. Then you can just restore all the data back from the thumb drive when you're finished.

Hope this helps!

U can remove the drive from the external unit and hook it up to your vista computer as a secondary drive. Boot up the vista, use windows explorer, and transfer the data from the secondary drive to either your primary or a usb stick.

Thinks it's full

232 gbs is normal, a 250 GB hard drive has generally less space than 250 GBs, the actual size of the disk depends on the way used to format it.
