Laptop HP Pavilion 15-199sa: power external HARD drive Question

I think to install an SSD and put the HARD drive in an external enclosure USB 3.0.

However, I noticed that the maximum starting current of the HARD disk existing (a Seagate ST1500LM006HN-M151RAD) is cited as 1000mA, while the available USB 3.0 port output is only 900mA.

Should I take particular notice of the "current maximum spin-up ' or do I have to find another way to feed the external enclosure?

All have experience of moving from a HARD drive in an external enclosure?

Thank you!

Yes mine was 2.5 "internal & put in a usb basket.

very old model notebook too butruns out a usb.2.0 port without problem.

I think you will be fine & find your port can provide 1amp quite easily if necessary.

Usually, all that would happen if port could not feed enough energy would be failure to load the USB device.

The odds are in your favor, just buy a shopping cart 2.5 "usb3.0 of good reputation of quality that will support your large drive

(caddy to take care of 1 or 2 TB is probably more matter than usb3.0, so check caddy spec full power)

  • Seen my original library cut in two, can I have the second library on my laptop with images referenced on my external hard drive?

    Following the Division of the library and the Organization,

    I can duplicate the library system on an external hard drive. Then divide the library and erase part of it on my library system and do the same on the library to external hard drive blocking the erased part of the library system. Essentially to save space on my laptop. But I need to have two libraries on my laptop, one with the originals and iCloud services, and the second with "small pictures" listed on the external hard drive. Can I do it? How can I do? ¿Is - it safe on two libraries?

    Thank you!

    If you want to turn outside your library in a referenced library, with the originals on the external hard drive, you can not do it by duplicating the library if your original library is managed. Does not support photos to transform photos managed in referenced. The only way to make a photo referenced must import it such that referenced.

    You can do the following:

    • Export all the photo you want to move to a second library to your external drive.
    • Then, create an empty library on your internal drive and import the photos exported to this library with the preference "import. Copy items to the library' for disabled people.
    • Delete all the photos in your library that you moved to your new library referenced iCloud.
    • Keep a backup copy of your original library on your external drive, so that you can revert to the original version, if you made a mistake.

  • external hard drive questions

    How can I move only my new images on an external hard drive? I have my library of photos copied onto an external hard drive currently and you want to move only new images. The only way I know how is to move my library of photos once again, but then I would have 2 libraries of photos on the hard drive and double images I want.

    Also, how can I save my external hard drive to another hard drive external?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am fairly new to back up my photos and tips on a systematic and safe method to save frequently pictures would be great! Thank you

    You can "move" and new photos to any photo library - you must use the Photos to import, iCloud library sync them or PowerPhotos to move

    How to backup up depends on your backup software - backup TimeMachine to an EHD - you need to remove the form DHM the list excluded in the TM preferences

  • Satellite L670D Simple Drive external HARD drive question

    OS Windows 7 Home. Preload by Toshiba.

    Have a Toshiba simpledrive 1 T. When plugged into the USB hardrive are rewritten with shortcuts. Hard drive in Explorer properties shows data from correct volume on the disk, but I don't have access to the drive. Shortcuts anywhere.

    Disk formatted with laptop and work very well, but can not eject. Whenever I want to eject the disc, it is being used by another program. Cannot find the program using Xdrive. Once the X drive is off and then turn it back on shortcuts will be displayed again. Do not have the same problem with Xdrive on my PC - OS Win 7 Pro - works fine.

    I've updated to Toshiba laptop drivers, Bios etc. Also updated Windows still no go. It must be a problem with laptop, but I seem to not be able to solve it.

    Help will be appreciated.


    Hmm, try connecting the HARD drive to the computer before booting the operating system Win.
    Also, check if the software Xdrive isn't blocked by any other security software (antivirus, firewall tool, etc.).
    I also recommend checking the power management of the Win 7 on your laptop. Check if the USP ports are not configured to save energy.

  • Windows XP - a problem to transfer big file from laptop on an external hard drive

    I have a problem to transfer large files (mail.pst - zipped file - 5Gbyte) of the laptop (Dell Latitude D630) on an external hard drive (WD 320 G - FAT 32) where each time, I got the message "there is not enough free space on the disk" although I did successfully drive clean on both sides and there is enough space on both sides (not less than 25 GB).

    Also, I did a checkdisk command and he succeeded, and I use Windows XP

    I did several tests to resolve and in the end, I found that I convert the format of external hard drive FAT 32 to NTFS, and then I could successfully transfer the file.

    I used the following commands:

    (1) command line then chkdsk to repair bad sectors

    (2) convert the command line to change the format to FAt 32 to NTFS

    Note: For Windows xp, "convert" command will not delete the files from the hard drive

    First of all, programs of a different version or windows session will not work on another computer as it was installed on the computer of origin at this time. It is an installation and application software, to the difference of the data or information that is accessible by any computer when the hard drive is connected. It is because no software installation binds the application of this specific operating system installed on this specific to the time machine.

    If the computer does not and the hard drive is accessible, all the content (such as music, photos, videos, and other information are accessible), but the programs have been installed originally are not available and will not work on any other computer when it is connected to the outside.

    However, if the hard drive works fine, windows is correctly installed, then the same hard disk can be installed on another PC of office and some of the programs should work ideally.

    Boot Manager Windows coming to the power upward with message: "Windows could not start...". Info: the boot selection failed because a required device is not accessible. "No previous problems with starting, but, yesterday, I hooked up a new external hard drive (WD Passport 1 TB) to back up my entire computer.  Everything went well: formatted, partitioned the drive (500 GB), but I clicked on 'active' on one of the menus.  Remember that a single partition on a hard disk can be active and in the case of the c: / drive is the default for the MBR location, but this player is also the default location for the operating system (unless otherwise designated).  I just didn't know it would be a problem if I did an active partition on another disk entirely.  I only have WIN 7 on the machine, but I guess that the BIOS is looking for the operating system on the external hard drive (it will not start if I have the HD Ext. hung or not), is not to find a MBR or a BONE.  However, before shutting down the computer yesterday, I created an image of the system disk hard Ext. as that was my intention in the first place.  Turned off the computer and it does not restart until today, whereupon no boot, error events began.

    I use a macbook air 2014 model and would like to know if I can boot the mac from an external hard drive rather than the inside. The reason to do this is to save space on the laptop and updates can be installed directly on the external hard drive.

    Is this possible? Forgive me, because I'm not that tech savvy. Thank you in advance!

    Yes. Install or clone of Mac OS X on it and then select it in the pane of the system preferences Startup disk.
