20 Most Recent Verbatim (R) Wallet Drive(TM) USB Portable Leather 640GB Hard Drive Questions & Answers

There may be times when all you may need to do is to reinstall a software program.

When this happens, having a backup copy is much more convenient than relying on a total system restore.

Hours are saved, frustration is curbed and getting back on track and up and running in record time are among the real benefits of keeping separate duplications of your software handy.

Learn how to make a backup copy of your valued software so you'll always be ready to reinstall it in an emergency situation.

Access the "Control Panel" from the Start menu.

Select the "Performance and Maintenance" category.

Select "Back Up Your Data" from the Task menu.

Use the "Back and Restore Wizard" option and then click "Next."

Select "Back Up Files and Settings."

Select the option "Let Me Choose What to Back Up" and then click "Next."

Select the software you would like to back up.

Typically, it is located in a similar location:

"My Computer, C: Program Files." Note: Check the box next to the software you would like to back up.

Click on "Finish" to begin the backup process. When finished, click "Close" to exit.

Hope this helps.

Has the drive been used previously? Possibly on a Mac or Linux machine? If so then Windows may be having a problem recognizing the file system the drive is set up with. Try connecting the drive to the PC, turning off your PC and then turning it on while tapping the Del key. This should bring you to the BIOS where you can have a look around (mostly in the Boot menu) to see if the BIOS can recognize the drive. If the BIOS can see it but Windows can't, it's most likely a problem with the file system. Bring the drive to any Windows or Linux based machine (or make your own Ubuntu Live CD and do it yourself) and reformat the drive to either FAT32 or NTFS (NTFS being the best choice). Windows should have no problem picking up the drive then.

If the BIOS doesn't recognize the drive, bring the drive to another computer and test there. It may be that the power is going to the drive but either not enough to start the hard drive spinning, or that the drive itself has failed. Either way, it's pretty much dead.

Don't forget that most external hard drives and the likes come with pretty long warranties (lifetime in some cases) and you should always contact the manufacturer to find out if it can be replaced or repaired free of charge.

The device is USB powered and the first test is to see if it opens on another computer and if not, another cable. If it does not work, the next thing to know is the probability of being able to get the unit operating again is very slim. Those devices use SMT components and they require very specialized service and diagnostic equipment. That is the reason that these drives come with back up software. You need to back up the back up. There is a slight chance that you may be able to remove the drive from the housing and plug it into a computer directly, of use a universal cable to activate it. Keep in mind that the drive has a lifespan.

You only get to make four or five code changes and, for copyright reasons, thats it.
You can download Anydvd from Slysoft.com and it will nest in your desk top, and remove all dvd codes as you load. The dvds then run "Region Free"
They will copy with Dvd shrink and so your back ups are region free as well.

Yes, just plug two of the drives into your computer at once, and you can then drag all the files and folders from the older (source) drive to the new (destination) one in File Explorer. You may want to set up separate folders for each of the source drives, this will avoid conflicts if you have files and folders of the same name on the different external portables.

If you want to automate the process, look for the shareware "Unstoppable Copier" which makes it easier to do mass copies.

It's probably faulty. I've seen several pen drives fail like this. You can try recovery software like Get Data Back or Recuva but depending on the problem, it will not work (if its a hardware problem). Try to see if the flash shows up in "Disk Management". If it does and it shows 32GB, you may have a chance of recovery.

Assuming it’s powered on, do you hear the “usb” sound when you connect it to the computer? If not, try a different usb port, or a different cable. If you hear the sound, check for the disk in “computer management”. It may need partitioned or formatted.
