How can I copy my computer files on to Iomega eGo portable hard drive 250gb

    Your eGo, should have came with a program to do so, I'm surprised that it didn't. Once you plug it into your computer...it should recognize the eGo and offer a program to up load files. Plus, you can do it manually, by just cutting and pasting the files that you want place there.

Connect your drive then just copy and paste or
perform a backup, designating your Iomega drive as the destination.

I JUST BOUGHT A EGO 259 IOMEGA SERIAL NUMBER IS X1AA431124 HOW DO I O USE IT AND WHAT TO DO AND NOT TO DO.


> WHAT NOT TO DO

Do not copy all your files onto the drive **AND** then delete then from your 'C:' drive.
It's necessary to keep TWO (not ONE) copies of your files: one on your 'C:' drive,
and one on the external drive, and then pray that *BOTH* devices don't fail at the SAME time.

I have a iomega eGo 500GB which I used on a dell laptop running Windows XP. I backed up all my files on the drive and now have a new laptop running Vista (old laptop has gone) put whan I pluged in the...


Enable "File and Print Sharing" on the "old" computer.

Connect the IOMEGA to the "old" computer.
Enable file-sharing on the "root" folder of the IOMEGA.

Connect the "old" computer to one of the LAN ports on a router (wired or wireless).

Connect the "new" computer to another LAN port on the same router.

Make sure that both computers are in the same "workgroup".

From the "new" computer, browse to "show computers in my workgroup".
You should see an icon for the "old" computer.
Double-click that icon to "open" that icon, and you should see all the files on the IOMEGA.

Copy those files to the 'C:' drive on the new computer.

Is there a site that will tell me how to use my new iomega eGo portable? I need to get instructions as the one page with it when bought told me how to connect but not how to use it..


Once it is connected, it should show up in your My Computer folder as a removeable drive. You use it like your hard drive on your computer to move and copy files to. Just open your hard drive on your computer, select the files you want to copy or move to the new drive and right click on the selection, click on the send to option on the menu and it will be one of the options to send the files to.

Iomga eGo drive data back-up for Vista need transfer to Windows 7


try to connect it to another computer that runs vista, reformatting is never a good thing. the portable hould be read on any other computer, but if you connect to another computer that have vista take it off and keep it on the other computer for a little (like someone elses computer) and put it back on to the computer with windows 7, reformat it and try to put our stuff back on then try again.
