One of the most important yet overlooked elements of PC maintenance is data backup. If you do not perform regular backups, chances are your productivity will eventually suffer from data losses or a failed Windows installation.

All versions of Windows after 3.1 ship with a free backup utility called Microsoft Backup. It is not the best backup program available, but it may be sufficient for your needs. (Backup is better in later versions of Windows. Microsoft recommends Win98/Me users purchase a third-party utility.) If you want more control over your backups, consider purchasing a third-party program.

Backup is part of the System Tools utility. However, Setup does not install it by default in Win98/Me/XP Home. If you cannot locate Backup, visit the Microsoft support site and query for article No. 152561 (Win98), No. 264541 (WinMe), or No. 302894 (WinXP Home).

In Win98/Me, click Start, select Programs, Accessories, System Tools, and click Backup. To create and run a backup, click the Create A New Backup Job radio button and click OK. Follow the prompts to create a full or partial backup. If you want to create a backup set and run it later or run an existing backup set, open Backup and click the Open An Existing Backup Job radio button and click OK. You can now access the main Backup dialog box.

In Win2000/XP, navigate to the System Tools utility and select Backup. Click the Backup Wizard button. If you do not see a Backup Wizard button, click the Welcome tab. In WinXP, the wizard will start automatically if you are in wizard mode. Follow the prompts to create your backup set.

When you reach the last dialog box, Completing The Backup Wizard, you can click the Advanced button to create a backup schedule (this option is not available in Win98/Me). When you reach the When To Back Up dialog box, select the Later radio button and click the Set Schedule button. Perform data backups on a schedule that is appropriate to the importance of your files (once a week is a common timeframe). You should also perform a system backup at least once a month.

If you do not want to use the wizard, or you are working with an existing backup, open Backup and click the Backup tab to access the main Backup dialog box.

SOURCE: LaCie d2 Quadra 500 GB HD dropped, now makes strange chime/alarm

Modern hard drive motors can easily become seized after an impact. The only DIY solution I am aware of is the use of a heat gun over the back of the drive motor. The build up of heat within the motor is sometimes enough to free it.

If the drive was running the problem may be due to a phenomenon known as "sticktion" where the drive head is actually stuck to the disc surface. If this is true then you need a data recovery company.

SOURCE: my lacie hard disk 1tb all of a sudden isnt

Just contact www.lacie.com great support. their answer for my drive was to reboot the drive. For me it worked.


Follow the procedure below to reset the Network Space to factory defaults:

  1. Move the power switch to the OFF position. Wait for the drive to shut down.
  2. Turn ON the drive.
  3. Within about 3 seconds, flip the switch OFF and On several times.
  4. Immediately turn it ON
If the light flashes quickly, the unit is resetting itself. Attempt to connect to the drive again after about 1 minute using the default username and password (by default, they are both admin.)

SOURCE: My Lacie isn't letting me

Hello,
did you use your drive with a PC too?
What you describe is commonly linked to a drive formatted as NTFS (a windows partition format) which is read only on a plain MAC system. There are add ons you can install on your MAC to make NTFS writable. I can direct you to one if you need.
Another possibility is that your drive is formatted as MS-Dos (FAT32) which is read and write enabled for both PC and MAC, but it has the negative aspect of limiting file size to 4GB. So in your case, maybe your movie files are larger then 4GB and your drive is formatted Fat 32.
To verify the format of the drive, go to DIsk utility, select the LaCie drive and read the information that shows at the bottom of the Disk Utility window.
Regards,

Lacie 324 screen turned blue


yeah mine too ... was working fine then came up Blue screen. switched back to another laCie 324 monitor happen to have. Called LaCie who said they only replace these as it is cost prohibitive to repair or service... oh and I had it 18 months and they wanted me to pay for a new one and after I send it back if it is not working and is covered under warranty they will reimburse ... what kind of customer no service is that.

Doesn't work


am not so sure if this is a similar issue with iomega2_bing.gif external drive in which the drive wont show up on My Computer but when the external drive was plugged into an ubuntu machine the drive was being detected and working just fine.

Please try to do the same. plug your external drive to an ubuntu machine and lets see if it can be detected. If it is then the hard disk has a similar issue with iomega drives. check this link for the solution.

Check the memory. It might be missing, or it might be full.
There might be something wrong with your MP3 player. Test it a few times , and if it doesn't work, you might need a new one, Or you can exchange it with another new one.

LaCie drive won't turn on (blue light doesn't go on)


I doubt your hard drive is dead, even if your HD was dead the blue light would go one. It has to be the internal controller.. Your best bet is to get a HD enclosure and put your old drive in there. I've burned through 3 Lacie cases, all with similar problems..

File transfer size limitation for LACIE HD


hi

can i suggest that you use winrar to divide the file size of your file that you want to transfer to your lacie. this might work.

download winrar @ majorgeeks.com

but if you LACIE still says that it does not have any disk space left...i would suggest that you reformat the HD instead. but make that a last resort...

hope this helps

Lacie d2 HD Quadra 250gb


Lacie D2 drives in my experience are infamous for not having the most durable bridge boards. The bridge board is a chip that has a chipset on it which take the SATA or PATA connection and send it to the USB and or Firewire ports on the enclosure. If the drive is powered up, you should get a blue light on the front. When connected to either mac or pc ( porsches are MS_DOS formatted out the box ), if it does not mount or does not appear in DISK UTILTY, then it is a high probability that the enclosure/bridge board has failed and the drive ( if not making grinding, buzzing, clicking or beeping sounds) will have to be extracted and placed into a more stable enclosure.


Hope this helps.
