Question about LaCie Design by F. A. Porsche 160 GB Hard Drive
How are you backing up you data? You should specify the drive and location where your backup file should be saved when you started the backup.
Do you see the external drive from your windows explorer? Make sure it is detected by the system.
If you have other clarifications, please don't hesitate to ask.

First ensure the HD is working on a different computer, otherwise HD is faulty.
Ensure that you log on Window using an administrator account, and that there are no restrictions on software or devices installation on this computer.
If the Lacie is not detected by Windows, go to hardware devices, in control panel, and check if there is a yellow mark on USB. In that case you will need to uninstall and reinstall USB.
If nothing in there, try using a different USB cable, unplug the Lacie and plug the disk USB to a different port. The disk should start self installing.
If still no luck , try unplugging power cable from PC and adapter from external disk. If the computer is a laptop, also remove battery. Plug back computer, then try re-connecting the disk.
If still no luck and disk is not detected, at that point a solution may be reinstalling Windows, providing that disk is working.
If instead the problem is that you cannot recover a backup, then backup file may be corrupted.
