Hello,
I've been using an LG HDD for some months now. 1 GB. All of a sudden, its stopped working properly. I cant copy files into it. Most of the times the copying window shows up, and then it reads 'calculating time remaining' for a few minutes, and then the HD disconnects.
Anybody help?

Whatt system???
Is this a real old system as 1 Gig HDDs are pretty old.
And did not know that LG made HDD, could you provide a model Number?

If infact HDD is only 1 GB (Note: just my windows 7 operating system + some programs take about 35 Gigs) click on Right click on My computer and select properties and look at how much fre space you have.

Sounds like you may have a failing HDD.
To check the HDD.
..Goto Start Button.
...Type Command
Should open a dialog box and at the top should say Command prompt
...Right click command prompt and select Run as administrator

In the Dos Box
.. Type in X: Then enter NOTE Do Not use X, use what ever drive letter your external drive is then
..Type chkdsk /R Then hit enter. This will check the HDD sectors and attempt to fix. It can take a long time depending on number of errors it finds.

LG's web site MAY have a bootable HDD uti;lity disk that you can download and create an ISO bootable CD to check the HDDs health.

chkdsk will only affect files that are in BAD clusters. It will attempt to recover the file and relocate to a good cluster. IF it can not, most likely you have lost the file anyways.
Will NOT effect files in good clusters.
