Getting rid of GPT protective function on a Flash Drive. The use of Diskpart and list drive did not work for me on a 128GB flash drive which shows up in disk management. The GPT protection was implemented when I used the flash drive with an iMac (OSX 10.6). The solution after trying {diskpart and list drive which did not show the flash drive, as well as ...

Usually if drivers are installed correctly and device is reported as functional, but not mounted it is the case of drive letter not being assigned or conflicting. It is a common issue in Windows operations systems. Try following: Open "Run" dialog Run Diskmgmt.msc Select the partition of your external hard drive Right click and in context menu choose ...

It's too soon to say with certainty, but I think I've resolved the issue. I replaced my Linksys EA-3500 with an ASUS RT-N66U and I haven't had any issues with losing files since. I will keep a close eye on it to see if I do lose files, and try to remember to update this post if that happens. My guess is that there is some issue with the firmware on the ...

You should first understand the difference between native EFI-mode booting and booting in BIOS/CSM/legacy mode. Intel-based Macs have EFI firmware, and OS X boots in EFI mode. This firmware includes a BIOS emulator (known as the Compatibility Support Module, or CSM; or sometimes referred to as "legacy mode" support) that enables them to boot BIOS-mode boot ...

I created this batch script to "unlock" any volume. Just run the .bat script as administrator, select the volume, and press ENTER. After it you should be able to use "Safe remove" as usual to detach the unit. @echo off @cls set tempfile="%TEMP%\diskscrp.dsk" echo. echo === Disk removal tool === echo. echo Select the disk volume number echo (if the ...

I had this problem on my Note 3 (Android device) with some files in a folder on the external SD card. rm produced "operation not permitted" and lsattr produced "inappropriate ioctl for device". The fix for me was to take the SD card out of the phone and put it into a PC to delete the files. Worked like a charm. I know that's not exactly a "linux" ...

I have the exact same behaviour on a disk (even the windows chkdsk error) and Recuva has been capable of recovering all the data. It's a free software, so it seems an easier way than the Linux option. I know the question is pretty old by now, but this may help someone else :). This is not spam, by the way, it really helped.

You can use Recuva, one of the best tools, to recollect the deleted files. Here is Link to download Recuva Note: You should not write new files into your hard disk after deletion. Because Deletion means OS remove just Link to that file saying that the place is available for filling. Then there can chances to fill that place if write new files into hard ...

One of the best free file recovery solutions for windows is Recuva https://www.piriform.com/recuva/download But make sure you do not install the Programm to the Harddisk with the deleted files.

Autoplay was constantly popping up when I have tried to watch movie from my new USB external disc connected to USB 3.0 port. I checked out all solutions from changing autoplay settings, USB root Hub settings in "Device manager", power settings, changing registry and nothing helped me until I found one post which helped me. This is the only solution which ...

Unetbootin can make your external drive bootable with certain ISOs without formatting the drive - it keeps all the data and adds the MBR to it, along with some unpacked folders and files from the ISO. But be careful, it has an option to format the drive, tick that checkbox before pressing next. If you want to install Ubuntu in a normal way, to separate the ...

"Buffer I/O error" unfortunately in most cases when it happened it was a hardware failure. To narrow the problem down you can try to boot up with Live CD/USB. UPDATE: You can try to treat this drive with Gparted and/or fdisk. Gparted has also its own Live CD

It doesn't matter whether you mark all files and copy or just a bunch of. Only thing you should keep care, if you have any chance, to Don't run high memory consuming applications during copy so your OS can use more RAM for buffering Don't put them at the very same USB controller: Most of PC and Laptops are having only a little number of controller using ...

It shouldn't matter at all, as long as there are no defects with either drive. The OS will copy one file at a time until it's done, it won't try to move terabytes of data instantly. It will only run at the speed of the old drive, not break it by trying to pull it all out at USB 3 speeds.

Have you tried taking ownership of the files using icacls? Here's some instructions on how to do this for a whole drive (Option 3, No. 4): http://www.eightforums.com/tutorials/2808-take-ownership-file-folder-drive-registry-key-windows-8-a.html If this fails, you may be able to change the permissions using a Linux Live bootable CD or USB, though that would ...

This really depends on your actual router. If it doesn't come with a USB port, then you're out of luck already. There are small NAS adapters out there, essentially allowing you to connect an USB device to a classic network cable, providing a small NAS. Also keep in mind that those router hubs typically only provide some minimum spec voltage (actually ...

You can use any external enclosure that can house a 3.5" HDD with an internal SATA interface. You will not find one that is USB powered. Typical enclosures for 3.5" Drives come with a separate power supply. The external connector that you have on your old enclosure is for USB. You can go with an enclosure that offers eSATA, USB, firewire or a comination of ...

As someone who has used TestDisk to recover a corrupted partition table, I would highly recommend it. First of all, it is in your best interest to not utilize the disk until you have performed recovery. This is to reduce the possibility of overwriting data on the disk which you will be attempting to recover. Also, I would recommend reading through the ...

After doing some research, I found out that Test Disk recreates the partition tables of many disk formats, which work when a drive is deleted. You have to choose the Intel partition format. If Linux file systems were previously residing, they too will be recovered, but you can delete and merge them with EaseUs partition manager. If you have any problems, ...

Check your hard drive. I'd wager that you have bad sectors. I recently ran into the same issue because there were too many and the drive was close to failure.

Your disk is probably in its agony. Anyway, you can try to clean the partition table, and setup it again. I you don't have any data on it (you should have a backup!) you can clean the disk with diskpart tool. This is build-in Microsoft partition editor. Do as follows: Connect your disk to PC an wait until it is recognized by Windows. Start Administrator ...

If the file table was corrupted you would not see any files on it directly. I am pretty sure most of tour data are kept on the disk. This is because it is physically has not been erased. If so, it can be restored. You will need to run a specific recovery software. It searches for the chains of data which are supposed to be the same file(s). I mentioned here ...

Your USB interface is going to be a bottleneck. You can daisy chain up to 128 devices with USB, though, you'll need to use powered drives of powered hubs. If its just a matter of space it could work. You could probably use a pair of 8/9 port hubs, or chain up USB drives like so +----+ ...

The way with USB HUBs works technically, no serious issues but performance. If you are not going to spend more money you can go for it. It's cheapest but slowest way. However I would run it on professional stuff, such as SAS. Here is an example which would cover you requirements: 15 SAS or SATA drives in one box with SFF-8088 miniSAS connections for great ...

try this command in cmd: chkdsk e: /r (assuming that e is your drive letter listed in your 'My Computer'). If you are note able to recover it then try file recovery programs like the one mentioned by Dark_Cyber in the previous Answer.

Is the folder you're looking for in your EXT HDD? If so, why don't you copy it over to the desired location? If it's no longer on your EXT HDD, you might have accidentally deleted it. If so, try using a tool called "Recuva". I've had success with recovering accidentally deleted folders/files/etc in the past.

The Hard drive might have errors due to the power loss, Run the cmd command chkdsk e: /f (assuming that e is the drive letter listed in 'My computer') If that doesn't fix it then try hooking it onto another OS, preferably Linux OS

In my personal experience, it will always be slower to use external drives, rather than internal drives. But I have connected USB hubs to USB hubs before, so I don't see any reason why you shouldn't be able to connect 16 drives to 1 USB port, if only you have enough USB hubs... You might want to buy an I/O card with extra USB ports, that is if it's not a ...

It is very much possible, the hard drive can be powered seperately and connected to an android device by using a hub like the following : http://www.vantecusa.com/en/product/view_detail/586 You need an OTG cable for the device aswell, whivh you van get at any local store for a couple of dollars.

I am a tightwad so I would try to use that drive again. If so, I would run SpinRite which is available at GRC.com for $89 dollars. Once SpinRite has identified the bad sectors and relocated the data, the drive's SMART system should be able to keep the drive operational for quite a while. If money is a consideration, it could serve as a local backup or ...

After a ton of changing permissions, it was noticed that I had two .Trash and .Trashes folders in my Home folder as you can see above. "Sudo rm -r ~/.Trash and Trashes" and then a restart fixed my system and it is running clean as a whistle.

Based off of your questions, I'm not sure if this answer can comprehensively resolve your situation: I would suggest externally connecting the drive so that you can check to see if it is formatted. If the drive is not formatted with a file system Windows recognizes, Windows will prompt you upon connection to format said drive. I think your evil plan is ...

In case anybody was wondering, Toshiba StorE Alu2 disassebly requires removing the 2 alluminium covers. So press/pull the plastic case, and use the screwdriver to release the 2 of 4 clips on each side.
