How was the data backed up? If it was a straight copy, you should be able to access the files just like you would any on your internal hard drive. If you used a particular piece of backup software, the means of accessing your files (restoring if that is what you need to do) depends on which software it was.

You may need to use the software you used to do the initial backup to also recover it

My Iomega LDHD250U 250 GB USB External Hard Drive's Power and Usb ports WILLNOT CONNECT!!!!!!! Please help ive been trying to figure out why all day.


Dear Friend, Your I-Omega case might be bad or the controller inside that connects everything. I suggest you to get: http://www.walmart.com/ip/Apricorn-Universal-Hard-Drive-Adapter/10811435. and pulled your hard drive enclosure apart, then removed your hard drive and connect with the external adapter. Usually comes with a SATA or IDE connector for data and power adapter. After connecting everything plug into your PC and it should be able to recognize.
Good Luck#

An example on how to download and save to an External Hard Drive and copy and paste to an External Hard Drive Click start all programs accessories open windows explorer navigate to your data
Right click on the data select copy navigate back to the External Drive.

or right click on the data select paste or select the data hold the mouse cursor then drag the data to your usb drive then drop it in
or if you are downloading data from the internet.


Once it starts downloading windows will ask whether you want to run or save it
a browse option will open you can save it into your External Drive or a folder in my documents or another device or a usb device
Hope this helps.

Am I able to password protect the 34974 Iomega external hard drive? I am not interested in encrypting, just having a password so it cannot be seen by others


Plug your Iomega hard drive into the USB port on your computer. Click the "Start" button and choose the "My Computer" icon. Double-click on your Iomega hard drive's icon. Right-click in a blank space on the window and choose the "New Folder" option from the menu that appears. Highlight and drag all of your data into the new folder that you created. Right-click the new folder and select the "Properties" tab. Navigate to the "Sharing" tab and check the small box next to "Make This Folder Private." Click the "Apply" button and then choose "OK." Use your Windows login password to access the folder and the contents. Hope this helps

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.

    I'm no longer able to retrieve data from external hardrive. Any attempt at copying and pasting from the Iomega to any of my pcs and laptops fails; only the icons themselves are pasted, no actual data. Also...


    Iomega will charge you to recover thier drives, but if you open the Iomega case you will find a Seagate drive inside, Most likely a barracuda, Just go to WWW.SeaGate.com. Download Seagate DiskWizard or other free tools and follow the simple instructions to repair, Format,and or save the data on this drive..
    Feel free to open the iomega case and you will find that it is a SeaGate drive, and unlike iomega
    there tools r free and fully opperationel.

    "I spent hours trying to figure this drive out and opend it up and found out today. but be ready to wait for the drive to be ready to use again. It is taking 4 hrs to repartition and format the drive.
    I hope this works for u as it has for me.

    If it was formatted and used in the past try this:

    Probably not the right answer for your problem. Mine is an external 1 TB Simple Drive. Mine wouldn't respond at all. I unplugged the power cable from the back of the hard drive and replugged it in and instantly it worked. I had tried rebooting the computer, plugging/unplugging over and over into the computer and that didn't work.
