On black white screen it says Hard Drive failure is imminent. Back up or replace


Your computer is set to warn you of controller failure to the hard drive. Its called SMART monitoring. You will have to replace the drive. Start backing up your precious data to a reliable drive before the unthinkable happens. Right now it will continue running normally, but it WILL fail. Portable hard drives are extremely cheap right now. Its recommended you purchase a portable drive that is at least twice the size of your current hard drive. Next, get a hard drive that is the same type of drive you have in your system (have a service tech help you with this if youre not comfortable doing this).

I just bought an iOmega eGo 160GB external hard drive and have no idea how to use it once I've installed the program. Help!!


From what I'm finding; this drive is a USB 2.0 drive. First, you'll need to plug the drive into the computer via the supplied USB cable (if it came with one) and any AC power for the drive if it requires it.

Then, your PC should detect it and you then need to run the software for it to be configured properly.

To use the drive, simply (if in windows) double click my computer and the drive will probably come up with a name such as eGo or iOmega Hard Disk or possibly even External Hard Disk. From there, double click that drive and start copy files! :)

I have plugged in my iomega portable hard drive and want to backup my computer. How do I do that?


If the drive connecting through a USB port you will see a new drive letter under my computer. You should use the backup utility of your computer to backup your PC onto the new drive or selectively copy documents from your computer's hard drive onto the portable hard drive.

I bough a portable hard drive it is deleting imformation every time i delete information from my computer the portable hard drive does the same


You must have installed software that probably came with the portable hard drive to back up or sync files. The backup/sync option is doing just that on your back up drive. Open the software you installed and tell it not to delete files that you delete on your computer.

My computer has stopped recognizing the 160 GB portable hard drive (plug and pray)


better plug it to another pc and observe if it would be recognized by the pc. well, sometimes, portable hard drives takes time to be detected by PC specially when it comes to age, better observe it for about 3-5 mins, and if its not detected, try to touch the usb cord of your portable hard drive connecting to your pc and make some adjustments to it.
