    Hi All,


    When trying to move files from my PC to my external drive Iomega, I get the error:


    Cannot copy/move files from PC to external drive Iomega (Windows 10) with Error: An unexpected error is keeping your from copying the file. If you continue to receive this error, you can use the error code to search for help with this problem. Error 0x80070079: The semaphore timeout period has expired; [2] Location is not accessible.


    After several tries, it complains that there is an issue with drive.


    I have tested my external drive on other PCs and it works fine.


    I searched the net, but it mentions to disable firewalls and de-activate anti-virus. I cannot do this, since this is a work PC.


    Can someone kindly help to provide a fix.

    :)

  2. Accessing folders in Iomega external hard drive

    I am using a new desktop with Windows 10/Mozilla-Firefox Browser.....

    External Iomega hard drive backup....Model LDHD320-U

    Plug in Iomega external hard drive....

    My Windows "File Explorer" recognizes the hard drive....

    Clicking on the Iomega Drive brings up my file folders....

    Brings up: Administrator

    My name

    Click on "my name"

    Lists: "Desktop"

    "Favorites"

    "My Documents"

    Double Click on "My Documents" brings up total list of those "files"

    Some of the files are "defined" (on left side of list) with pic of a "file" folder.

    Some are defined by, "Adobe Reader" symbol

    Some are defined by, "Word" symbol

    I can open successfully the "Adobe Reader" and "Word" files ok.
    (I have Microsoft Office 2013 installed)
    The others with symbol of a plain file folder produces this small window error:
    "Windows Script Host"
    Code: 800A1391
    Window is undefined
    Also, the Iomega does not show the opening window with all the settings, kinds of backup etc......
    Tried looking up the error code above and don't understand squat......
    Thank you.......

  3. Problem with my Iomega external hard drive

    I have a new Dell desktop with windows 10.

    Connecting my Iomega external hard drive with all my backup from my former computer, Windows recognizes the Iomega but my primary Iomega tool bars don't come up.

    What does come up are the files that are in the external hard drive, but I can only access "my pictures", not, "my documents".

    I have not contacted Iomega, the "Geek Squad" or anyone else.

    I found this site and posting this problem here.

    Anybody have any suggestions?
