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.

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 have tried connecting my Iomega 250 gb USB 2 Hard Drive to my computer and it is telling me that the unit has malfunctioned. Is there any way of getting the data off it?


    First try connecting this USB drive to a different computer.
    If this did not work then the USB adapter case is faulty, then remove the hard drive from the case and attach the hard drive to an USB hard drive adapter then plug it into a working computer's US port. If the hard drive is OK then the computer will see this as an external storage device and you can open the folders and files to backup the data off this hard drive.
    If this does not work then there are companies that can recovery data from faulty hard drives BUT it will cost you an arm and a leg for their services.

    Problem with Iomega Portable Hard Drive


    Sounds like the drive is dead, even though it powers up the disk might not be spinning or the read heads could be stuck. Depending on the data you have on it and if you have it backed up or not, you could send it out for to have the data pulled off it but I warn you it is not cheap.
