Question about Iomega Computers & Internet
Whatever you choose to do, the first thing you should do is back up all of your data immediately, in case the drive completely fails and you can't get to it.
Do you have a warranty on the hard drive? If so, you should send it back to the manufacturer after advising them of the 2-foot fall and have them either repair or replace it.
In case the problem is not actual damaged parts, you can run Scandisk or Chkdsk in Windows or DOS (with all of the options checked) to inspect and repair the drive and hopefully improve its performance.
