Question about Iomega 1000 GB Network Hard Drive

1 Answer

My Iomega Home Media Network Hard Drive ("HMNHD") used to work perfectly, until I reset my Dell Inspiron 1545 and installed Windows 7 to upgrade it from Vista. I backed up all my files, program data, programs, etc. to the HMNHD, and now that I have 7, I can't delete or modify the backup (I no longer need nor want it). When I try to modify one of the folders, it gives me a "File Access Denied" popup saying, "You need permission to perform this action You require permission from Unix User\254 to make changes to this file" It's really starting to get on my nerves since the HMNHD now has about 400 GB of space used up by the backup, and now I only have about 600 MB left on the 1TB drive... Help!

First and the foremost thing is that when u backup any info to an external hard drive try only back up the data that u have saved. Coz application cannot be saved if done they cannot be retrived. Now if those files are asking for permissions then right click on the file - properties - then on the securities - click on add - then Under Enter the object names to seclect type in Everyone then click on Check Name now Everyone will come in Underlined - click on OK - U will come back to properties tab then on top click Everyone - And under Permissions for everyone Under Full Control Check ALLOW - Then OK
this should fix the issue.
If this does not helps, since u have transfered all the data back to the PC why not format the External Hard Drive. Connect the Drive right click on it the see it teh format option is there or not if present then foprmat it.

    If you have a Linux machine and are willing to open the IOMEGA - very carefully - you could physically connect the hard drive to your Linux system and after mounting its filesystem, also access all the files. Note that this will void the warranty but I've done it a few times and after putting everytihng together again, the IOMEGA continues working. Just don't snap the delicate LED connector and be careful when removing the hard drive. The problem you have experienced lies in the brain-dead approach IOMEGA has taken to file permissions, by trying to be clever and translating Samba style permissions on your behalf. It is possible to solve it by using the Linux chown and chmod commands.

make sure you have the Lenovo storage manager software installed. Make sure you can see the device from the storage manager and all the shares. Once this populates you can then see the shares in quickprotect. I believe quick protect polls Storage manager rather than the actual network.

I need to know how to do a factory restore on my computer. i dont have anything important on it... as a matter of fact i kind of look forward to getting rid of all of it.


when you start the computer hit control and f11 then release them at the same time. In the Dell PC Restore by Symantec window, click Restore. Alternatively, press <Tab> to highlight Restore, and then press <Enter>. When a warning message appears stating that all data will be lost, clickConfirm, or press <Tab> to highlight Confirm and then press <Enter>.
The Progress window will appear. Once the restore process starts, Dell PC Restore by Symantec usually takes about 8 to 10 minutes to finish.
Click Finish or press <Tab> to highlight Finish and then press <Enter> to restart the computer.The software is now installed as it was when the computer was first received

I have dell inspiron 1545 ultimate & window 7 it was before vista.Now blue tooth is not working please help me out.


Upgrading your laptop OS from Vista to Win 7, you have to reinstall your Bluetooth drivers for Win 7 OS(ie x86bit or x64bit) for the Bluetooth to function properly.

Dell Inspiron 1545 download @ http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&ServiceTag=&SystemID=INSPIRON1545&os=WLH&osl=en&catid=&impid=

Under "Network" -> Select your correct Bluetooth drivers versions for your OS Win 7 (i.e. x86bit or x64bit) to install.

Hope it helps.

I'm trying to update the firmware on my Iomega Network Home Media Hard Drive (1 Tb) using my Mac. The drive has worked flawlessly, but I'm still using firmware 1.029. I've downloaded the new firmware...


The instructions for updating the firmware from the older version is here

www.iomega.com/support/manuals/hmnhd-1011-1208/en/main.html

If it is not rebooting itself and coming up in the new firmware, i would assume that I had neglected to hit the apply button.

You might find more information on that site, but I can't see any mention of a hardware or software lock on updates.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1545, purchased about an year ago. My OS is Windows 7 Professional 32 bit. The touchpad is not working. I have reinstalled the official driver, but to no avail.


Reboot and enter your bios (instructions are on the boot screen), reset your bios to defaults. If you're using a synaptics touchpad, they're a bit finicky and you need to remove your existing software in the control panel and install a fresh copy of it.
