LaCie Hard Drive

Dear Master, My LaCie Hard Drive refuses to switch off the blue light. I do everything as I always did - eject it by dragging it into Trash, it seems to switch off but the blue button keeps burning. When I switch my computer there is more movement in the Hrd Drive anf then it seems to be completely off but the light is still on. I finally switched it off from the energy supply. How can I deal with it?

The hard drive has it's own power supply. If you look on the back of the external hard drive, there is a power button there to turn it off. It doesn't shut off just cause you disconnect it from the PC or turn the PC off.

I put a mini disk in my macbook not knowing it would not load - now it will not eject

Be persistant-shake the F&^% out of it. Face it with the disk slot facing down and just shake it a few times. Worked for me.

Lacie hard drive won't turn on

My 1TB Lacie suddenly won't power up (no sound, no blue light). It turned out that I might have worn out the on/off switch over the seldom-use 4 years of usage. I push and flip the switch multiple times, and the Lacie came back to live and mount normally. I will just leave it at the On setting and simply pull the power cord when i want to switch it off.

Obviously, Lacie failed to do QA on the on/off switch because my 4 years usage did not totalled to more than 10 on/off per month.

Lacie 500gb external drive

The disks inside the HD are not spining. The creaking noise is the HD trying to start. Next time when it does start transfer all the files ASAP cause your drive is about to die.

Trouble seeing my lacie drive possible mounting issue

Not sure if this is the exact same issue, but I couldn't get the drive to mount with different connections, etc. The problem turned out to be the power adapter. If you've got the same kind of adapter on another drive, switch it out and see if your drive shows up. Good luck.

Lacie 2big Triple 2T - Raid 1 LED's blinking

Solved! After 17 hours of blinking, the status of the 3 leds is now to fixed blue. You just have to be patient...
Note that I had only put 1GB of data on the drive. I expect that the resynchronization time is not proportionnal to the amount of data on the disk!

Creating space on external hard drive

When you move files to the Trash on a Mac you are just marking the files to be deleted next time you empty the trash. You are not actually deleting them when you move them to the trash. They will continue to take up space on your drive until you empty the trash.

Emptying the trash will delete everything in the Trash folder regardless of which drive it is stored on. If you have files you are not certain you want to delete that are located on your internal drive, open the Trash folder and move them temporarily out (like to the desk top), then empty the trash to delete all the ones on the external drive that you do want to clear off.

You will see that the free space has increased on the external drive. Now put back in the trash the files from your internatl drive you were thinking of deleting but not certain you wnated to (if that is your reason for not wanting to empty the trash. I'm not clear on why you would not want to delete them.)

Information used- capacity used and available

Re: deleting the files, did you drag the files into the trash bin and then empty it? The files don't actually leave your drive until you 'Empty Trash' on your mac's doc. Hope this helps, not sure about your startup disc problem.
