  1. External drive backup


    Hi, recently I bought a new computer dell Inspiron small desktop, I also own a "Toshiba external hard drive USB 3.0 USB devise", which I used to backup my previous

    desktop computer for years where I saved valuable files and documents. Now when I tried to open this devise in my new computer I can't. I tried so many way

    and I'm giving up. I also check so many web technical sites and I have not found a solution. So anybody who may have a knowledge this problem, please let me know how I finally can I open it.

    I contact Toshiba's customer service but they were unable to solve my problem.

    :)

    Hard Drive / External Drive + Backups Configuration?

    I run 2 500GB drives in RAID-0. (Seagate 7200.12 drives)

    This is very good advice. I have lost my array once. *Mad External drive backup :mad: I backup weekly to an external, and also copy any important files (work data, game saves, pics, etc.) to my 500GB "personal" drive. So basically, I have an image of my Array saved to the external, and a copy of "My Documents" backed up to the internal 500GB.

    Moral of the story: Definately backup often, whether running a RAID array or not. *Toast :toast:

    Free hard drive backup/restore program?

    I am looking for a free (freeware) program that will back up and restore a hard drive. I'm looking to clone a few external hard drives. If the program will backup the used space instead of the whole drive this will be awesome! Thanks for any suggestions.

    Hard Drive / External Drive + Backups Configuration?

    Pickup a 2TB for internal use, use all above drives as external for periodic backup of the 2TB. That way you have the best of both worlds, backup and "speed".
