It seems to be hitting a "bad" spot on the disk-drive, so that the "write" of the one block of the file never "completes". Such a "write-one-block" operation cannot be interrupted (it usually completes in a few milliseconds).

Copy all the files from the eGo onto your 'C:' drive, or "burn" onto DVD-writable disks.
Then, replace your external disk-drive, because it is "dying".

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.

    How do i copy files into Iomega eGo 1TB? It is brand new but show no storage space left.


    Well this method will destroy everything on it so make sure there's nothing on it. Go into computer, right click on your drive, click format, the options should be default unless you know what you're doing, this should restore all the space to usable space. If this doesn't work go to properties then tools and disc error checking, there might be a bad sector.

    you can cut and paste or just copy the media to the external hard drive. and copy it back if the data is ever lost from your computer, also you can have iTunes use the external hard drive to get media from. So you can free up valuable space on your pc's hard drive by just cut and pasting the iTunes folder to it.
