I work on an iMac and have been using Iomega HDD 500 for backing up, which then became full, so I instructed it to delete oldest files. A day later it has suddenly changed its status to Read only. What...


You can change the permissions on any given folder, drive or volume by clicking it once and selecting "Get Info."

Then, to change the access and/or permissions, in the lower right hand corner of the Get Info window, click the lock icon and enter your password.
Once it's unlocked, change the entry next to your username where it says [yourusername])(me) to Read/Write.
Then, click on the little gear icon and choose 'Apple to Enclosed Items.' It will ask you if you're sure, tell it yes.
If you do not see your username in the list, click the plus icon to add it, then follow the steps above.

I have backed up everything and now I have to restore my computer. It downloaded but it says I do not have permission to access the files when I click on them.


Try right clicking on the file and go down to properties and when the window opens click on the security tab then click on the user name you are using and go to edit to change permissions, check allow all.
thanks for using FixYa

I have a mac and a new iogmega external drive, 500g. I cannot move any files onto the iomega or save them. I get messages such as "that file does not exist" to iomega can't be modified,...


Hello,
With the drive plugged in, going into your Applications ' Utilities ' Disk Utility Select the drive and press Verify Disk, Repair Disk and Repair Permissions. If you don't have anything on the drive right now, try formatting it with the Mac OS Extended (Journaled) file system from the Disk Utility.
If that doesn't work the drive may be damaged. If you have another PC / Mac, trying plugging it in and see if it works there. If the drive is under 1 year old it should still be under warrantee, in which you could return it / RMA and get a new one sent back from the manufacture.
Regards, Chris

Attach the cable from the external hard drive to an available usb port on your mini. Here is a link to the Guide provided with the unit if you do not have it. There should be a setup section. Use this drive to store all your pictures, music, documents etc.

My Iomega Home Media Network Hard Drive ("HMNHD") used to work perfectly, until I reset my Dell Inspiron 1545 and installed Windows 7 to upgrade it from Vista. I backed up all my files, program data,...


First and the foremost thing is that when u backup any info to an external hard drive try only back up the data that u have saved. Coz application cannot be saved if done they cannot be retrived. Now if those files are asking for permissions then right click on the file - properties - then on the securities - click on add - then Under Enter the object names to seclect type in Everyone then click on Check Name now Everyone will come in Underlined - click on OK - U will come back to properties tab then on top click Everyone - And under Permissions for everyone Under Full Control Check ALLOW - Then OK
this should fix the issue.
If this does not helps, since u have transfered all the data back to the PC why not format the External Hard Drive. Connect the Drive right click on it the see it teh format option is there or not if present then foprmat it.

Cannot copy files to Iomega 500 GB external hard drive.


It depends on how you formatted the the drive.
If it was formatted FAT it will work on both Mac and PC.
If you formatted to HFS+ (the native mac format) then it will only work on a mac.

Problems adding files onto the hardrive


This sounds as though the Iomega has got locked somehow.
Do a get info on its desktop icon and have a look at the lock checkbox. Also look at the write permissions while you are there.

Iomega 500 gb hard drive: large file transfers


The default format for the IOMega drive is FAT32. This format will work on all versions of Windows, as well as Mac OS9 and above. Unfortunately, FAT32 can't handle files larger than 4gigs. If you want to use larger files, you're going to have to remove all the files from your IOMega drive and use your computer to format it to NTFS (Windows 2000/XP/Vista) or HFS+ (Mac OS9/X).

Consult your owner's manual for specific details.
