Question about Computers & Internet
I have a Freecom 400GB external HD to use as a backup to my PC drive C.
My PC drive has used around 27Gb of its 40Gb capacity, yet when I run a backup to the 400Gb drive it only shows about 6Gb in total space has been used. All my files and folders seem to backed up OK, and indeed I can open them from the 400Gb drive with no problem, but I cant see the Windows files as shown when drive C is opened. So how can 27Gb be backed up into a space of 6Gb. I dont understand.
I use XP Pro SP2 and all updates.
Ive just brought a seagate freeagent 1tb and want to use it to back on files from ps3 but it needs to be a fat32 but i only have the option of exFAT and NTFS, hope someone can help thanks Justin

I have a 500 GB external HDD from freecom, wich was working fine in the beginning.
It was fat32 pre-formatted when i bought it, so i formatted it to NTFS becouse i want to put big files on it. When I connect it to my computer, everything goes allright. But when I start a program such as:
wich are using my drive, it just *shuts down*. Well, it's not shutting down actualy. The light indicator goes off, and windows can't acces it anymore (it's still in your list of my computer though) , but the drive inside is still running. When I hit the switch to shut it off, it goes off, you can hear the drive stop spinning, then you get all kind a errors in windows with drive write errors (becouse i shut it down ofcourse). This is not happening when i connect it to a hub. i connected it to a 2.0 hub (wich is not 2.0 full speed ofcourse, but it's faster then 1.0) and then it's not *shutting down*, but it's very slow ofcourse.
Please help me out, becouse I can't do anything with it right now, unless under low speed. )-:
