Cannot restore data from iomega backup pro

When I try to restore data from iomega backup pro I get no configurations to choose from on my screen. So the wizzard will not start. I backed up my hard drive not just files. But I need to restore a few files that I deleted by mistake. Iomega has in my judgement the worst tech support ever.

Yes..that is quite the case. you may wish to do a restore all approach, perhaps to another drive, if you have that option.

How do you get the Iomega eGo Hellium 350GB hard drive to be recognized and initialized by Microsoft Vista Operating system? Have tried the instructions from Iomega and they do not work. The system...


one thing that is possible, is that you may have another drive letter assigned to the letter the iomega is trying to use.

Try this....Click on your start orb and type in Disk Management.
open the Disk Management utility in Windows and see if you see the iomega drive listed in the list of disks on the bottom.

If you DO see the iomega drive there, make sure it shows a healthy partition (It should say something like Fat 32 or NTFS as the file system type...if it shows "RAW" or "damaged" or something like that, you may need to erase and format the drive)

Then, try right clicking on the drive and choosing "Change Drive Letter and Paths..."
from there try a new drive letter in case you already have another peripheral using the drive letter the iomega drive is trying to grab. This could cause Windows to recognize the drive but still be unable to see it in your explorer.

Good Luck

How do I back up my computer with an iomega portable hard drive?


  • 1 ***** the size of files you need for taking the backup. Files having graphics, sound and videos occupy more space than a simple text file.


    2 Plan the future requirements and consider the space needed accordingly.


    3 Choose an external drive of 20 GB or above to store huge data backups.


    4 Get an external hard drive and connecting cables to attach the drive to your computer.


    5 Select the data you want for backup. Organize the data into folders and sub-folders for easy find. Financial data, digital photos and music can form priority data for backup.


    6 Connect the drive to your computer. Use the drag and drop options for taking the backup.


    7 Remove the drive after properly ejecting by right clicking on the task bar on the desktop.


    8 Keep the external drive away from the place where you have your computer when done. If your computer gets damaged due to any unforeseen reason, you will have your entire data safe in the external hard drive. It minimizes the risk of data loss.

    Here is what LaCie suggests about this issue:- first backup any data you have copied on Wireless Space. You can also backup your configuration: from "configuration" tab of "Support" widget, click "save" button next to "Configuration file", it will download a backup file.
    - still in "configuration" tab of "Support" widget, tick the third box labeled "Restore device to factory state (data erased)", or any equivalent quote in selected language, and click apply
    - the device will reboot, rebuild hard drive image, then reboot on default state. The issue is definitively fixed
    - it is recommended to apply latest update downloaded from LaCie website
    - you can restore previous configuration in "configuration" tab of "Support" widget, click restore and select previously downloaded backup file
