Question about LaCie 301103U 500 GB USB 2.0 Hard Drive

2 Answers

I can't believe how slowly my backup is running

I can beleive how slowly my backup is running.

I have a brand new 500 Gb LaCie drive. For my first backup, I just clicked on backup my entire C: drive, which contains about 30Gb. After 2.5 hours, the backup software indicates that it is about 14% complete. This would mean an estimate of 17 - 18 hours to backup.

Is this normal? Have I missed something?

There is nothing else running on my computer. The LaCie is connected through a high speed USB hub.

    I stopped using Backup software. I now just drag-and-drop the folders I want to back up. It works much faster.

Try different backup software. I had a problem with Acronis, which worked fine on one computer, but not on another. On the other, Symantic Ghost completed a backup in about 2 hrs. for a 6GB system drive

I have the same problem too on my 2big form lacie . If I use 2x 1,5 tera disk in "fast mode" or in "big mode" my disk manager only shows 746 gigs available (it should be at least 2,5 terra).
If I use "safe mode" so my system can see 1,3 tera available, wich is normal for a raid mirror configuration.
I hope to find a solution quickly.

Hard drive is no good. If new replace under warranty. Given the bad luck you have had with this brand, you might consider replacing it with a different unit.

Have you tried showing hidden and system files?
In the Windows Explorer, go to the Tools menu and select Options or Folder Options.

Hard drive making strange alarm/chiming noise and won't load onto desktop


Listen to your power supply and see if it is making a faint buzzing noise. Try your device with a new power supply. With a new power supply my drive now runs fine, and was not corrupted.
