20 Most Recent LaCie (300950) 400 GB Hard Drive Questions & Answers

Simplest solution: back up the data on the drive and repartition it (which will wipe it). Otherwise it sounds like it could be a problem with the file tree or structure of the drive, the configuration files could be corrupt, some program could have stored temporary files in a hidden place that cannot be deleted without making the program delete them, etc. If you are on a mac, spotlight Disk Utility and use it to repartition. If you are on a PC use the search thing from the start menu and find a program called disk management (or something similar to that, you'll know it when you see it.) external drives are annoying. i kick mine into the wall periodically for good measure.

The whining noise and the low clicking sound are indicate mechnical problem. My recommendation to you is to backup all the important data you have on it ASAP before it will crash and you will not able to do it !!!!

hereĀ“s a thought! You can try running chkdsk cause maybe your freespace is being reported incorrectly! Open command prompt: Go to Start->Run then type cmd and press enter Run the chkdsk utility: where x is the drive letter of the removable drive at the prompt type chkdsk x: /f and press enter now windows will scan for filesystem errors and fix any if found. Also on another note, items in your recycle bin count towards the amount of used space! hope this helps regards, babb

Just an idea. When you set pass words or any important information write all information in a note book and keep it in a drawer someplace where you will not lose it. When things change write the new ones down and cross out the old ones. I save a lot of head aches that way.

Pushing in the paperclip should unlock it, but if still jammed, may have to wreck drive by pulling off front of drive drawer thing. Maybe try putty knife to push cd down some of that's holding it from opening.

Replace perhaps, but repair is most difficult. The electronics are miniature and it takes special tools to do repairs.

Two ways this can go. If you are talking about the entire hard drive pulling it out and plugging the whole drive into another pc. Then you're fine If you are talking about disassembling the hard drive and moving the disks inside. This is not something you can do. This is what you will need. 1) a certified clean room surgical grade 2) tape 3) A matching drive/ hd board down to revision number 4) presision screw tools. 5) patience. Or you will need to contact a professional data recover company.
