I have canofile version 2.5 >>>the files that have archived I can't retrieve. many times I lost a lot of files>>>what to do first to retieve these files second how to prevent it in the future plz reply to...

First determine if the hard drive where the archive is located is OK.

In My Computer or Computer (Windows 7) right click the disk drive select Properties / Tools / Check Now / click on both check disk options and click start. You may be asked if you want to run the disk check next time the computer is booted. Select yes.

Restart the computer and plan for the test to run over night.

If there are no fatal errors, suggest down loading a file recovery program such as Handy Recovery and see if it can find the lost files.

The secret, if there are files that we don't want to ever lose is to back them up regularly to an external drive or CD/DVD.

Will i loose pictures & other files if i format my pc

Yes you will lose all files when you format.
If you want to save your files but cannot open Windows on your computer then remove the hard drive from your computer and connect this hard drive into an USB hard drive adapter. Plug this adapter and hard drive into the USB port of a working computer, this computer will see this as an external storage device, you can then open the folders on this drive and copy/backup the various folders and files.
After you have copied/backup your files, you can install the hard drive back into your computer to format and reinstall Windows.

My harddrive was accidently unplug without exiting properly and files may have been open.

Chances are that some files have been corrupted or the hard drive is corrupted.
If you are lucky the hard drive is OK and you may have lost a few files. Connect the hard drive to your computer and check your data.
If the hard drive is corrupted, you may have to format it to get it operating again and you will lose your data.

I have a verbatim hard drive 300 gb i used for about 6 month already, i have i lot data, now i plugged in the computer today i have this messega\r\nthe disk in drive E IS not formatted. do you want to...

Try the Verbatim in some other computer, to see if it can be read at all.

Or, search online for "USB file scavenger" software -- it reads through the device, block-by-block, and may possibly be able
to "stitch" blocks together, to recreate your files.

The device probably has a one-year warranty.
Eventually, exercise the warranty to get it repaired/replaced.

Hard disk error message.The computer says that windows has detected a hard disk error and that I should back up all of my system files to avoid losing all of my information.

Sounds like you have an bad sector in with the windows system files. Yes backup now! I would buy another hard drive, you can try to re format and put you stuff back on, but for the price of hard drive buy an new one.

Cannot Find the Product code for registration with memeo?

that's what happens when you buy a laptop... lots of trial software that you are expected to buy if you want to keep using it. I would however check the documentation that came with the hard drive. there may be a registration number for the software there.

When i click my hard drive, it tell me to format it. ????

have you try to connect it to a different computer?

if yes and getting the same problem you need to call your WD for the warranty and replace it. if your up to your files inside your storage i guess they will endorse you to their third party company that will recover your data storage and it will cost a lot.

Hard drive keeps losing space lol

Are you surfing the internet a lot?  You may be getting a lot of temporary files.  Here is something to try.  In internet explorer go to tools / internet options / delete cookies, delete files (all offline contect) and clear history.  This should help some.  You are always going to go down in space.  Windows updates automatically on a regular basis.  This will cause a decrease in available hard drive space.
