One thing to remember is the some of the Simple drives requires the USB mini to conect to the drive and the TWO USB connects to be plugin to the computer.

Backup software compresses the files and encodes them to an image file made up of a series of sequenced files. The same software you used to do the backup should have the restore options needed to locate desired files. SimpleTech website shows Fabrik to be the name of the backup software.
If you utilized, there's also an online backup site used to store files. Following link is the users guide:

Mine will work on my desktop but not my notebook


This is usually a corrupt USB driver for the device. On the machine that has trouble recognizing the drive:
right click my computer
click on properties
click on device manager
find the USB devices, click the plus sign to expand the tree.
Plug in your drive, see which new device appears, if it has the exclamation point, then right click on the device and click uninstall. Reboot the system.

Reformatted without downloading software to my desktop


robilynn -

Here is the driver page, you'll have to get the model number off of the drive to download the proper one:

Here is the page for the manuals (top of the page), just choose Pro or Duo pro for whichever is the drive you have:

That should give you everything you need to get it back up and running.

Simpletech external simple drive model 96300-40001-001--flashing blue light


do you mean that you used this as a "Data" drive and do not have the data stored on your pc...

that is basically the same as having no backup... if it is important, store the data in more than one location.

it is possible that a power surge killed the usb adapter on your storage device.... you may be able to transplant the HDD onto a working adapter or USB->HDD bridge to get your data back

I have a SimpleTech Portable Drive (back-up)


I assume you're using the StorageSync software. Go here to make sure you have the latest version:

http://www.simpletech.com/support/support_downloads_storagesync1.42.php

Since I don't know what you're clicking, I can only tell you that you need to choose the "Incremental Backup" radio button at the bottom left of the Backup Window, then click the "Backup" button.
