  1. How do you manage data on very large discs?


    Hi Folks,
    I'd be very interested to know how other people manage very large discs and data, i.e. 1TB and above.
    As a photographer and videographer/film maker I am almost always dealing with large volumes of data and hence have migrated to a couple of terabyte drives.
    I always keep my system disc free of large data and back it up to an external drive weekly.
    I currently make great use of partitioning and find it's an excellent way to keep everything separate and after a large photo or video project I can just delete the whole workspace without worrying that I'm going to delete something else by accident.
    So my current set up is a separate partition for all of the following:
    C: System
    D: Pro photos
    E: Family photos
    F: Music
    G: Software and downloads
    H: Pro videos
    I: Family videos
    J: Video workspace
    K: Video archives
    L: Photo workspace
    M: Photo archives
    N: Multimedia
    But by the time you add in a couple of letters for CD/DVD drives and another four for a multi-card reader, I'm up to T.
    So when I plug in a usb flash drive it shows up at U.
    All well and good so far and it works for me BUT I've now decided I should back up these partitions perhaps every 3 months or so, but if I plug in a large external drive, I can't partition it into enough partitions because windows runs out of letters!
    So as I said, I'd be really interested to know what others do.
    Regards.

    :)

    There are no more files and ASUS Data Security Manager


    I've been having the same issues trying to save files.

    I followed all of the steps but ASUS Data Security Manager keeps reappearing. How do I really get it to delete? I've done the uninstall four times and it just pops back in the list.

    Lost data from hard drive, what to do now?

    Well, I'm sorry to hear that it's a WD My Passport that failed on you, @tomhenry ! *Frown How do you manage data on very large discs? :(
    I'd recommend you to try using a different USB cable with it and see if that will help your system to detect it without it disconnecting.
    I'd also suggest you to go to Disk Management and see how the drive is listed there. It won't hurt to check up on the health and SMART status of the HDD by running the QUICK and EXTENDED tests from the WD's Data LifeGuard Diagnostics. Here's a link to the available software: http://products.wdc.com/support/kb.ashx?id=11ZOpD

    Give these troubleshooting steps a try and keep us posted with the results!
