Once you save the data on the external drive it will stay there until you delete it from the external drive. I personally run (2) 1 terabyte external drives and I save My data on 2 separate drives. I have had them fail in the past. This is the only way to ensure you will always have a good copy no matter what. At the time I had only 1 500gb external hard drive and it was nearly full. I bumped it when it was running and lost every thing I had! With the low cost of external drives I recommend buying two of what ever capacity you require and making redundant backups, this will assure you your data will be safe. If you have any other questions feel fre to contact me at geokohler@gmail.com Send me your number and I will call you for free. I do this for a hobby just to help people. Please take the time to rate this fixya for me and I will assist you with any problem you have. Thank You,

Erase Firelite backups so drive is clean and I can start over


Empty the Recycle Bin -- the files that you "erased" were _only_ moved from their location into the Recycle Bin -- they still occupy just as much disk-space.

I can't seem to open my external acomdata hard drives. My computer doesn't recognize them and when they do open they will close in a few minutes.


Either the power-supply for the external drive is dying,
or the disk-drive inside the external case is dying.

Quick, make a "backup" of all the files on your ACOMDATA, before it totally "dies".

If it still is under warranty, exercise the warranty, and replace it.

Sorry, best I can do is advise next time don't use the backup/restore s/w that came with the drive. I own the same one and found Windows Backup works flawlessly. In fact, if files are still on orig computer, re-back-them-up using Windows Backup and restore to new machine same way.

Problems with Hard Drive


Hi,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

T your concern:
  • initially, pls verify that it is indeed an external storage problem rather than a laptop USB issue by trying other USB devices and determine if they are recognized and working;
  • disassemble the enclosure of the Acomdata external hard drive and remove the actual hard drive;
  • you would need the use of a 2nd PC, a desktop that could accommodate the HD from the Acomdata (IDE or SATA);
  • install the HD from the Acomdata as a Secondary Master or Slave internally to the 2nd PC;
  • boot the 2nd PC and determine if the HD from the Acomdata will be recognized as a local drive;
  • chances are that the partition of the HD from the Acomdata was messed up. This would explain the blinking blue light;
  • download and install a file recovery program. An example is GetDataBack (unfortunately not a freeware but DEMO is available) and do a recovery. It would take some time based on the size of the HD from the Acomdata;
  • temporarily save the recovered data in the 2nd PC. You can burn this likewise into a DVD backup should the 2nd PC be capable of that;
  • after recovery, re-partition and format the HD from the Acomdata while still attached to the 2nd PC;
  • should the re-partition and format be successful, you can transfer back the temporarily saved recovered files;
  • a nice, simple, fast and safe partitioning/formatting software is Partition Magic (unfortunately not a freeware but FREE TRIAL is available).
  • should the re-partition and format be not successful, you can replace only the HD and/or claim warranty.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Changing system files


If its an external drive go to my computer, right click on the drive and click format. In the format box you should be able to choose which file system to use. Note: This will erase ALL data on the drive. This works with any secondary drive. For the primary drive you would have to reinstall windows, formatting in the XP setup process to change the file system type.

Redemption Backup crashes


I have the same problem and have asked Acomdata several times how to fix it.  They say they'll get back within 3 days, but they never reply, Acomdata doesn't support their products.  Buy something else.
