Question about Microsoft Systemax Beast IV Desktop PC - AMD Phenom X4 9550, genuine Windows Vista Home Premium 64 Bit,

1 Answer

I have a new dell studio 17 and an iomega external hard drive. I've configured backup to do what I thought was a backup to the iomega and to do all of my files on the D drive (internal) as well as anything that is default on my C drive. Backup runs but when I search the external drive for a current update to a file or a new file, it's not there. what am I doing wrong?

I purchased a external harddrive Model LDHD-UP2 31882100 and have lost my harddrive for the same

That's possible. Anything made can break. I feel your pain because I've had two Seagate external hard drives to go belly up on me. It's like now days you need a backup to backup the backup.

Thank God for the Cloud Technology. You should look into Google Cloud. You can get 5GB Free to back up your data and you can access it from anywhere.

One more thing, if you want your data off the external drive there are places that will do it but it's going to cost you between $1,000 - $1,500.

I had a hard drive crash a while back so I had to install a new one. I don't remember what to do next to retrieve the info from my iomega usb hard drive. I am sure the hard drive is a 500 GB desk top

You need to re-install the Iomega backup software on the new hard drive, so that it will see the backup files on the external hard drive.
