Question about SimpleTech SimpleDrive Pininfarina 320GB External USB 2.0 Hard Drive - Blue
Error message when I try to open total media backup application from my desktop. Message "total media backup may be damaged or incomplete". Last back-up was 2010. This is my first use since 2010 with the same computer (macintosh/apple). The computer's original hard-drive has been replaced since last back-up. Previously backed up files are visible on drive so drive is working. Don't want to format drive as I'll lose existing back-up. Any advice on why I might be getting this message? Could it be because of the new internal hard-drive? and does this mean the recovery feature will not work for the 2009 files?

SOURCE: restoring backup files
well first off you should not use teh same external hard drive for both dell and mac! and for it to work on a dell you need to go to disc utility in the applications folder and click on you external hard drive and go to the last pannel which is called restore and put in the given info and it shall work!

I had a very similar problem. It turned out to be a faulty case.
If the drive was formatted, there is a very good chance you've destroyed your data and may need professional services to recover the files (if possible)
Chances are you just needed to replace the external case by removing the harddrive from the simpletech case and installing it in a new case.
But again, if the drive's been formatted, it may have wiped out your data.

> icon does not show up on the desktop or finder
A major "clue" that one component of the external storage device has failed, namely:
* USB cable (try a different one)
* disk-drive inside the enclosure
* USB-to-disk-drive adapter inside the enclosure
* optionally, the external power-supply that connects to the enclosure
Use a multi-meter to verify the voltage/amperage output of that power-supply.
(Not all external storage devices need such a power-supply.)
> can it be saved?
Partially. Disassemble the enclosure, and remove the disk-drive.
Purchase a new, compatible, disk-drive, and install it in the enclosure, to "revive" your external storage-device. (Compare it to a heart-transplant -- same body, new heart.)
